Encocam, the parent company of Corex Honeycomb was established in 1988 by Mike Ashmead, as a producer of aluminium honeycomb sandwich panels. The business expanded into many related areas including energy absorption and safety testing solutions.   In order to reduce its reliance on external suppliers, Encocam began manufacturing its own aluminium honeycomb, used primarily in the production of energy absorbers and crash test barriers; Corex Honeycomb was founded and the supply of aluminium honeycomb to external companies began. The origin of the name comes from the core strength of the honeycomb structure made when sheets of aluminium are bonded together and then expanded.

The Corex Honeycomb brand promotes aluminium honeycomb as a structural lightweight material with high strength properties, which makes it suitable for a world of applications. Corex Honeycomb has supplied aluminium honeycomb for some exciting projects including The London Eye, the energy efficient Personal Rapid Transit Pods at London Heathrow Airport and the Hitachi Class 800 train, all working alongside TRB Lightweight Structures.
