A single purpose, across continents

The original COBA business was founded in the UK on 12 August 1966 by the late Tony Cooke and Tom Bateman. That business was COBA Plastics Ltd operating from small premises in Coventry, manufacturing plastic extrusions and tubing, primarily for the automotive, motorcycle and caravan industries. Click here to read more about our history.

The current COBA International group headquarters is now located in south Leicestershire, which remains in the heart of the UK not far from where the business started. This site is home to more that 50% of the COBA workforce, spread over five divisions and across six facilities. From here the group exports a significant proportion of finished product, but also leads group services such as Engineering, Quality, IT and Marketing.

Our UK automotive specialist COBA Plastics Ltd has a long and successful heritage within the world of plastic extrusion manufacturing, primarily supplying the automotive industry with premium interior and exterior components. These range from standard extruded profiles to complex moulded components supported by a range of down line processes that deliver many value added benefits to our customers. Our success as a trusted design partner and supplier in this field has garnered global recognition for COBA Plastics. Our skilled and motivated people, our world class facilities and our state-of-the-art technologies are pivotal to our success.

Here in South Africa we work alongside the extrusions specialist divisions in UK, Slovakia, Russia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Romania to create a strong truly international manufacturing presence.
