Welcome to Stop-choc
Established in 1976, today Stop-choc Ltd is part of the Hutchinson group, the rubber and chemicals division of TOTAL and world leaders in the manufacture of rubber, elastomeric and plastic products.


Stop-choc Limited was first set up as the British operating company for the Vibrachoc Group. Since early 1977, Stop-choc has operated a manufacturing unit at Slough, primarily for the design, development and production of illuminated display panels, anti-vibration mounts, and electronics racking. In 1994 the Vibrachoc group joined the TOTAL group HUTCHINSON, world leaders in the manufacture of rubber products whose head office is in Paris.

Since 1934, Paulstra has been designing and developing anti-vibration mountings and systems to meet the most extreme applications. In 1994 they were joined in the Hutchinson organisation by Vibrachoc and Stop-choc to become one of the world's leading manufacturers.

Barry Controls, the highly regarded American organisation joined Hutchinson in 2000 and in 2005 its UK operations were fully integrated into Stop-choc.
