Insulam’s location in East Kilbride is close to all central Scotland’s road network and is one the country’s most successful and thriving towns. From here we despatch orders via a next day courier to all countries in the British Isles as well as France and mainland Europe.

Many companies claim to tackle all jobs large and small, we really do. So give us a call – we think you’ll be pleasantly surprised!

We pride ourselves on our quick turnaround of customer orders. In some cases – such as slot wedges for the rewind industry – a sketch emailed to us in the morning has been manufactured into the finished parts and parcelled up ready for despatch later the same day!

In order to provide an equally fast service between our factory and the customer’s stores all sizes of consignment from a jiffy bag to a pallet are despatched via courier on a next working day service.
