About us

Makevale materials will touch the lives of everyone on Earth

Makevale Group is headquartered near London, UK. We have two manufacturing sites in the UK, one in Asia and distribution centres in the USA and China. Our global reach allows us to export all over the world. Our manufacturing sites synthesise speciality acrylic bead polymers for a wide variety of applications and industries. These acrylic powders are manufactured and processed using proprietary techniques are in some cases blended with additives/pigments depending on a client’s specific requirements. For some applications that utilise a powder-liquid system, Makevale also formulates complementary liquids that are specifically designed to work with our acrylic powders. 

Research and Development is at the heart of everything we do. Each of Makevale’s manufacturing sites has its own R&D department, with different product development programs to create bespoke polymers/systems for specialist applications. We excel in producing tailor-made materials for our clients to help create superior products and often improve manufacturing processes and yields.

Our clients range from start-up distributors to large multinationals. Each client benefits from Makevale’s superior products and our team’s technical know-how, while enjoying extremely competitive prices. We strive to enhance the reputation of our clients – many of them are segment leaders.
