Victrex plc (lse|VCT) is a leading British-based producer of high performance polymers. It is a constituent of the FTSE 250.


The company was established in 1993 by way of a management buyout of the "PEEK" polymer business of Imperial Chemical Industries plc. It was first listed on the London Stock Exchange in 1995. In 2005 it invested in the expansion of its existing facility at Cleveleys in Lancashire. [ [ UK Business Park] ]


The company's activities are focused on one product - the "PEEK" brand of polymers. The product is used where chemical, wear, electrical and temperature resistance is important.
