Established in 1982, Formech is a UK designer and manufacturer of thermoforming machinery. The thermoforming process was first introduced in the 1930’s and is still thriving today across an ever increasing number of applications. No doubt those early pioneers could never have imagined the impact and longevity of their discovery.


Continual advancements in material technology allied with the explosion of online information and tutorials has contributed to the huge growth and diversity of thermoformed products. Its wide use in education has inspired the next generation of budding designers utilizing the latest materials and techniques.

Since 1982 Formech has worked closely with the world’s leading material, tooling and trade formers to develop a range of thermoforming machines, which are easy to use and deliver consistent results with the most challenging applications. We are continually inspired by the passion and creativity of our customers, who have greatly influenced the continual development of Formech thermoforming machines and ancillaries.

Whilst many commercially available thermoforming machines are still very rudimentary and resemble designs of the 1950’s, Formech has developed an aesthetically pleasing, sophisticated and user friendly machine range, which resides in the R&D labs of many of the world’s leading brands, companies and institutions including Dupont, VW Group, McLaren, BE Aerospace, Dyson, Disney, Ferrero Roche, Cambridge University and hundreds more!
