LEP has developed solutions for the Construction & Heavy Equipment Industry for the past 60 years.

Our success is build on our team’s technical expertise and broad experience with many applications such as in Mobile & Harbour Cranes, Lifting Gear, Excavators, Agricultural Equipment.

All products are extensively tested and able to operate under harsh wear and even extreme thermal conditions. Our “Extreme” materials offer the advantages of all plastics: helping to reduce weight and a substitute option – due to their high specific strength – to other materials like bronze, cast iron and welded steel.


  • Productivity increase
  • Extended Mean Time Between Repair (MTBR), therefore reduced downtime, by using longer lasting, maintenance-free self lubricating materials
  • Longer life in use enabled by improved chemical resistance of components
  • Cost savings provided by wear enhanced products
  • Noise reduction offered through friction optimized products with non- stick-slip behaviour
  • Environmentally friendly applications as a result of eliminated or substantially reduced external greasing needs
  • Safety in use by getting the optimum cost-performance solution from a wide range of products

Custom Solutions for the Construction & Heavy Equipment Industries

Polyurethane Paving Moulds

Paving/Cement Moulds

Cement/paving moulds that give some flexibility to allow for de-moulding. Very durable.

Bridge Bearings

Bridge Bearings

LEP provides bearings for bridge spans, car-parks, and buildings. Manufactured from a combination of PTFE, rubber and steel they allow for thermal expansion an rotation.

UHMWPE Tivar 88 Shute/Trough Liner

Shute/Trough Liner

UHMWPE Tivar 88 auger trough liner provides reduce wear and friction, minimising the adhesion of conveyed materials. It also reduces noise and energy costs.

Timber J Bars - LEP Engineering Plastics

Timber J Bars

These ‘J bars’ are a proprietary LEP Engineering Plastics product which we supply to NZ’s largest timber mills. Designed and manufactured from polyurethane to be strong enough to convey timber but soft enough to minimise damage.
