Acoustex has been a supplier of quality Sound Deadening, Acoustic Insulation, Carpets, Parcel Tray, Injection-Moulded and Extruded Products to the Automotive Assembly Industry for more than 40 years.
The company originates from a local management buy-out from Bostik, which then became Formex Industries. The company’s name was later changed to Genkem (Pty) Ltd and Formex Components was then established as a stand-alone business unit, with its focus on the Auto Assembly and allied industries.
The company name was changed to Acoustex in 2007 and subsequently became a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Automotive Division of Ukuvula Investment Holdings. Ukuvula also acquired General Upholsterers, which then became Acoustex Trim.
