Our History

Jakob Sigurdsson

Chief Executive

Victrex is an innovative world leader in high performance materials, serving a diverse range of markets. Every day, millions of people rely on products or applications which contain our polymers, from smartphones, aeroplanes and cars to oil & gas platforms and medical devices.

Our high performance polymer solutions are based around PEEK (polyetheretherketone) and PAEK (polyaryletherketones), an ultra-high performance, durable, high strength and lightweight plastic that has a unique combination of properties, helping to improve reliability, reduce weight, energy and CO2, and become a material of choice in an increasing range of products and applications. PEEK is part of the PAEK (Polyaryletherketone family of polymers) and was developed by ICI in the late 1970s, typically as a metal replacement.
