Tim Loverock, Plastic Supplies Dudley Oct 06,2021

Since joining PlastikCity's Source a Moulder section, we have secured numerous injection moulding contracts. We work with a local toolmaker that is also a PlastikCity Partner and specialises in aluminium tooling. Together, we have been able to provide a cost effective solution for projects that may have otherwise gone overseas.

Clare Elvy, BEC Group Jul 06,2021

We’ve only been working with PlastikCity for a short amount of time but already have had reasonable enquiries that show promising signs of turning into real business. PlastikCity are like the Cilla Black of manufacturing!

Findhan Strain, Senergy Innovations Ltd May 20,2021

I have used PlastikCity on multiple occasions to source material and contact new suppliers. I think the site is great and a really interesting way of establishing new links. Best of luck with it, hopefully it continues to grow.

Mark Amphlett, Spitfire AMS Ltd Apr 29,2021

We may not have been partnering with PlastikCity UK for long, but we are already seeing the benefits. The Spitfire AMS Ltd team are looking forward to really getting involved, and we are in some great company too!

David Walsh, Impact Recycling Apr 14,2021

We used PlastikCity to list a used high-value shredder and had an incredible response and sold to one of the interested companies from the service. Coupled with the enquiries we receive from our main listing in recycled materials, PlastikCity provides a valuable service to the industry. David Walsh – Impact Recycling

Hélène Chertovich, Ampacet Nov 26,2020

PlastikCity is a great marketing tool for Ampacet. We live in the connected era where people expect to have the immediate access to information wherever they are and whenever they want. Digital communication responds perfectly to these needs and became a crucial part of Ampacet communication plan.

Fergus Hardie, Hardie Polymers Nov 24,2020

We continue to be impressed by the service levels offered by the whole team at PlastikCity and their willingness to ensure our needs are met. We really see them as part of our own marketing team.

Gordon Grainger , Bovill & Boyd Sep 22,2020

Within 24 hours of joining PlastikCity, we already had companies that we had never been in touch with before calling to enquire into our moulding services.

Gill Rice, Formula Plastics Sep 21,2020

I'm a regular user of PlastikCity and find it incredibly useful when I want to source products from reputable UK/IE based suppliers for our plastics moulding facility. To support reshoring, use PlastikCity!

Gary Probert, Hi Tech Automation Aug 11,2020

I used the PlastikCity Used & Surplus section for the first time last week to advertise some redundant material I had. It was cheap and straightforward to make the listing, and I was very happily surprised when it sold within hours of making the listing. I’ll definitely use PlastikCity to advertise other material and equipment in the future.

Christina Larsen, Intouch Feb 25,2020

PlastikCity is an invaluable marketing tool for us. Jessica, David, Will and Carl like, share and publish our news and information on LinkedIn, Twitter, PlastikMedia website and direct mails. Their database is extensive, relevant and targeted, so you know that the people you want to see your news are the ones reading it. Likewise, all the information and news they publish is of interest and relevant to you. You know that they vet their partners so you can be confident when using their directory and trust that you are reading about and able to choose quality suppliers.

Max Ainley, Hydracare Feb 25,2020

Hydracare has been using PlastikCity as an important part of its marketing strategy for many years. We are delighted with the relationships and business that have been a direct result of our partnership with PlastikCity and expect this continue for many years to come.

Anthony Bedwell, Biplas Medical Ltd Feb 07,2020

We were working on a project that required a 3-axis automation cell and needed budget figures for our costings. Rather than asking a number of potential suppliers to visit our site, we used the dedicated section and forms on PlastikCity to specify our requirements and get multiple quotes. We quickly got the figures we needed, and established contact with some suitable suppliers at the same time. The process was very efficient for both ourselves and our potential suppliers, and didn’t have an impact on the environment, as no travel was involved.

Caroline Faulkner, Faulkner Moulds Nov 05,2019

We have been a PlastikCity partner since 2015, and have benefitted from using PlastikCity’s well-developed digital media platforms. We have always found the team at PlastikCity to be very helpful. They are highly committed, innovative and focussed about promoting the best of the UK plastics industry.

Dave Sams, PL Machinery Limited Oct 23,2019

We’ve been a PlastikCity partner for many years and they are a valuable part of our marketing strategy. We’ve particularly found the Used & Surplus section of value, having sold many used granulators and ancillary items through this resource.

Andy Tomlinson, Total Precision Oct 21,2019

We needed to purchase a new Chiller for our production facility at Ilkeston in Derbyshire. Using PlastikCity “find a supplier” made the task very easy and simple by getting several suppliers involved in quoting for us. We successfully bought just what we needed from a supplier on the list.

Tom Ketley, Plas-Tech Thermoforming Ltd Oct 08,2019

We have recently conducted a review of our marketing spend, and found PlastikCity to be one of the most efficient platforms to generate leads and increase our brand exposure to the market. We hope to make even more use of the site going forward, and continue to grow together.

Stephen Cooper, TCB-Arrow Oct 03,2019

We at TCB-Arrow have been with PlastikCity for over three years now and use the site for both procurement and advertising our injection moulding services. We have had a lot of success in both areas and would recommend companies interested in working with high-quality UK based suppliers to use the site.

Craig Evans, Radical Materials Aug 16,2019

We have worked closely with PlastikCity for years, and now more than ever we are seeing a real benefit in the service. Back in May, we rebranded our company to include a further 3 brands into the mix. Marketing an umbrella company as diverse as Radical Materials has been a challenge but it's great to have the extra support available from PlastikMedia. They're enthusiastic and very proactive in getting your content out there to the right people. It has got to the stage now where they are advertising our varied range of services off their own back! We are very happy with the relationship we have built with PlastikCity and looking forward to seeing it grow as we diversify further.

Mike Bate, KraussMaffei Group UK Jul 02,2019

We use PlastikMedia to produce articles and technical blogs relating to our activities in the UK. They liaise with relevant members of our team and in some cases, our customers. Their in-depth knowledge of our industry minimises the input required by KraussMaffei and improves our internal efficiencies.

Meghan Jordan, Summit Systems Ltd Jun 05,2019

We've worked with PlastikCity for many years now and we hope it's a partnership that will continue for many years! The team are great, full of industry knowledge and always initiating new ideas. Not only do we use PlastikCity for our second-hand equipment and new business, they look after our SEO and they're doing a great job. Thanks to the whole team, may the relationship continue to grow!

Peter Tobin, AJ Robotics May 02,2019

AJ Robotics has worked closely with PlastikCity for several years. As well as being a Partner on the site, we make good use of the services provided by PlastikMedia. Their team design & distribute our e-blasts to their extensive, accurate & GDPR-compliant database. The process is very straightforward, from input on suitable content, through to them sending me a final test for sign off. This is greatly aided by their extensive knowledge of the plastics industry. Results have been excellent. We have secured several new & potential clients that we would have struggled to open discussions with.

Nick Parker, DB-Automation Oct 12,2017

It would be no over exaggeration to say that the concept for the PlastikCity Pavilion at Interplas and the attention it got was awesome! I just want to congratulate and thank you all for providing this opportunity for us, as we would not have invested in a conventional stand had you not offered this and we would have certainly missed out. Your support and professionalism throughout the show also did you all proud, it was great to feel part of what you created.

Fergus Hardie, Hardie Polymers Oct 03,2017

Just wanted to say congratulations on the really excellent job you did for us at Interplas on the PlastikCity Pavilion ! Your marketing was first class and you created a real show presence for all the exhibitors - many thanks for organising it so well and always with a smile on your face! We are delighted with the large number of enquiries we have had and the new contacts we have made, so much so that we have already been discussing Interplas 2020!

Paul Mcdermott, Mj toolmakers Aug 28,2017

We have found the site very useful and we have picked up several jobs and many quotes.

Ruth Hepburn, Plunkett Associates Jun 21,2017

I just wanted to say a huge thank you for the marketing that you do for us. I keep sending these articles through and you keep doing something with them! We are very appreciative of the service you are providing in addition to our listing - and thought it was about time we said so.

Peter Lucas, Medical Moulded Products Jan 17,2017

Having only joined PlastikCity two months ago, I was delighted to receive an excellent enquiry from a company requiring a Class 5 cleanroom moulding and assembly area for their production. They have already visited our site and we’re very hopeful of securing a good contract. Thanks PlastikCity for providing this platform for our industry.

Neville Dudley, Polymer training and Innovation Centre Nov 23,2016

PTIC contacted Plastikcity with a view to selling a used injection moulding machine. The machine was subsequently advertised by Plastikcity and received an excellent response and was sold within 48 hours. The service and support provided by Plastikcity was excellent, and we would use this service again in the future.

John Heaton, The R&D Factory Ltd Oct 10,2016

We occupied a booth in the PlastikCity ‘New Technology Hall’ for our Streamoulding process and was delighted when we received a great lead from a Tier 1 Automotive supplier. We are now organising trials and are optimistic for orders to follow.

Greg Farndon, Deyn Plastics Oct 05,2016

I used PlastikCity to get prices for a replacement 60mm Screw and Barrel. I got a prompt response from all of the suppliers I selected and made good savings against the OEM price. I will be using this excellent facility again.

Glyn Olden, Chess Plastics Oct 04,2016

Following an initial enquiry received through PlastikCity, we recently secured some technical Automotive injection moulding work from a UK based Japanese owned company. We now aim to develop a long term relationship with this leading company, with the potential for additional work going forward. Chess see PlastikCity as an excellent platform to showcase our capabilities and core strengths and will be exhibiting with them at Interplas next year.

Simon Anderson, LVS Small Plastic Parts Ltd. Sep 16,2016

We’ve been a PlastikCity Partner since the launch of the Source a Moulder facility. We’ve found the system generates opportunities from companies that we were not previously aware of. For example, we recently acquired a significant order from a company with capacity issues within their own in-house mould shop. We have consequently developed a strong working relationship with this company and expect to secure additional work going forward.

Nick Parker, DB-Automation Aug 04,2016

Having worked with Jess for some time in her role at PlastikCity, she has always been conscientious & efficient in all aspects of the business. We have worked through many marketing activities and the in depth market knowledge & support that Jess provides is excellent and has added significant value to both our subscription to PlastikCity and our business. We have seen leads and new enquiries directly attributed to marketing that we have completed with Jess. I would whole heartedly recommend Jess with her skill set and professionalism to support you in your marketing within the plastics sector

Nick Parker, DB Automation Jul 27,2016

I have known Carl for some time and during this time he has always displayed an outstanding level of industry knowledge and a natural ability to offer useful and important marketing ideas. Within the plastic moulding market in the UK it is no understatement to say that Carl and his team have built an essential resource. There is no question that I would recommend Carl to support you in raising the profile of your company in the market.

Noel Gourley, Brett Martin Apr 13,2016

I use PlastikCity for numerous reasons, and I find it extremely useful. It's a 1 stop shop which is very unique. I like how the site is continually developing and improving.. Keep up the good work

John Steadman, Technical Director, Aquapurge Ltd Feb 03,2016

I have got to say the “Post a Job” section on PlastikCity has worked out amazingly well for us. Not only was it cost effective, but the response numbers and the way we were kept informed by Jessica were 2nd to none. John Steadman, Technical Director

Kevin Hanson, Mahle Sep 28,2015

Hi Carl the site is great I cannot say a bad word against it. There is everything you need to find on your site and more...

Alan Bennett, Yushin Sep 25,2015

Nice to see you now have a good range of robot suppliers on your site. Moulders should take note of all these forward thinking robot suppliers and also note the ones not on the site !, we have had a number of quote requests through PlastikCity and I hope we all manage to move the UK forward on automation.

Peter Clarke, GR8 Engineering Sep 17,2015

You know I have a very low opinion of the British plastics industry but I must say that what you have achieved is to put some sparkle back in it. I hope you go from strength to strength with PlastikCity, well done.

steve cox, Vacucom Ltd Mar 06,2015

We listed a job vacancy on Plastikcity and are pleased to announce that we have filled the post, it was easy and I believe a very cost effective way of employing new personnel within the plastics industry, we are pleased with the results and will be using this facility again when the requirement for quality personnel arises.

John Sinar, Croboride Engineering Mar 06,2015

Think the PlastikCity site is fantastic, and just what the industry needs. I really like the fact that it is very independent. not biased to any suppliers.

Kieran, Burgess Colours & Compounds Dec 20,2014

As a company we worked with Carl to develop the masterbatch section and so he is great to work with and very helpful. As a company we are looking forward to working again with PlastikCity in the future.

Matthew Sydenham, Imagro UK Ltd Nov 17,2014

We have found Plastikcity to be a great way to reach potential new customers and to increase our companies exposure.We have had some very good enquiries generated from the site which I am pleased to say have resulted in sales! The approach from Carl and the team at Plastikcity has been refreshing to see including the use of various social media platforms. Plastikcity can only be a positive thing for the UK polymer industry - Please keep up the excellent work!

Steve Dent, Gotherm Heaterbands Nov 10,2014

Even though enquiry levels have been a bit slower than I expected we have just secured an order through PlastikCity that resulted in us supplying consignment stock to a large moulding company. On its own this has covered our subs for a couple of years!

Andrew Ruddy, Warwickshire Precision Engineering Oct 27,2014

The PlastikCity website has proved very useful to us in selecting our ancillary supplier. We have decided to award the business to Motan. Peter Brannan, their sales manager, has proved extremely helpful and in addition they came up with a good deal to get us started. Thank you PlastikCity for this help and I will definitely be using you for future requirements.

Richard Brown, G & A Moulding Technology Aug 12,2014

Its good to see PlastikCity going from strength to strength. The new format is an excellent move forward. How did we ever manage without a site like this?

Gabby Day, Pentagon Plastics Jul 28,2014

A good discussion with a new prospect directed to us from PlastikCity a great industry specific site for plastic injection moulders...

Paul Edwards, Pentagon Plastics Jun 16,2014

It's great to see the site continue to develop at pace and it's fast becoming a must place to visit for our industry....

Airelle Charra, Listgrove Jun 03,2014

The figures look very promising indeed and we are delighted to be part of the PlastikCity partnership.

George North, Harris Plastics Jun 03,2014

The system was perfect. I inserted my requirements and selected two suppliers to give me a quote. Both suppliers reacted very well supplying a specification and prices within 24 hours. I placed the initial order for 1.5 tonnes and I haven't even met them yet. I will definitely recommend the system.

Sarah Smart, Lenzkes Clamps Apr 04,2014

Many thanks for the heads up on the new Capacity Workshop. I really appreciate it and it is something I will definitely recommend to my customers and lead them to your website. I think it is a fabulous idea, especially with how busy the engineering side of things are at the moment and lot of my customers are subbing a lot of work out because they simply do not have the capacity themselves to do the work that is coming into their door.

Paul Edwards, Pentagon Plastics Mar 26,2014

We are very pleased to confirm that we have recently joined PlastikCity. The community that is being created is an exciting initiative that has real potential to be a must have favourite in buyers, engineers and plastics people's search engine of choice..... The site can be used to source suppliers by supply chain managers as well as to find equipment, machinery and share knowledge from within the plastics sector. If the early indications continue then there is an exciting future ahead for PlastikCity.

Fergus Hardie, Hardie Polymers Feb 19,2014

Well done again in this latest initiative. Its a very good idea and I like the whole concept of encouraging companies in the UK to work together. Good luck with it and I hope Hardies can help moulders to secure new work through improved polymer prices.

Mark Dickin, Ricoh UK Products Feb 10,2014

I've been interestingly watching the Plastik City resource develop over the last few months, it seems to be going from strength to strength which is fantastic for our industry.

Mike Durcan, Allsop Europe Feb 05,2014

I would be very interested in registering on your great idea of "Source a Moulder". We at Allsop Europe Ltd are located in the South East of Ireland, in Waterford.

Hayley Powell, A1 International Amari Group Feb 05,2014

This link is perfect I currently have a enquiry for moulding at the moment and this doesn't fit into my expertise. I will use this it's great! Do you have plans on developing links for stock shape suppliers & application development assistance for thermoplastics? Just a thought I feel this website could really assist and work for my current job role - Hayley Powell (Amari Group)

Aiden Doherty, ICM Jan 30,2014

I was surfing my way through your site yesterday afternoon. It has a nice professional layout. My company is looking to purchase ancillary equipment over the next few months for an incoming tooling project. I used the quotation request function for hopper loaders and have already had feedback from Jenco. I am very impressed with this kind of response. Is there a plan to add a section for Hot Runner systems in the future?

Graham, Pentagon Plastics Jan 15,2014

The site was easy to navigate to find what I wanted quickly. I was after quotes for equipment and the questions were simple, and to the point, and quotes were received in a couple of days. My only gripe would be the text box to prevent spammers, I had to scroll through a lot of options before I found one I could read, but that may just be me!

Leon Perry, Glenlake International Jan 10,2014

I needed to pull project costs in following a new Negri Bossi purchase, so decided to try the "Ancillary Shop" on the new PlastikCity website. I found the interface very simple to use, but detailed enough to get the quoted specification correct first time. I was given a good choice of top suppliers from whom to obtain quotes, which keeps things competitive and allows you to select preferred sources. The response time was good, with quotes arriving in my inbox within a matter of hours. I have now used the facility three times and find it to be a very useful resource, saving both time and money.

Owen McNally, Petford Tools Dec 18,2013

Love the site, and the ideas that it's bringing to the table, certainly a breath of fresh air. If come across anything that could use a tweak I'll let you know.

Richard Briggs, GB Asset Finance Ltd Oct 10,2013

We have developed some great new leads in the short time we have been a partner on the PlastikCity website. We recently provided the finance for a company that bought a used machine from the site and with the leads we are generating, we expect to do many more in the future.

Kevin Horne, Renmar Plastics Machinery Ltd Oct 10,2013

So far we have been very happy with the level of enquires we have received via the website. The quality is also good because they appear to be serious requests. Although we have yet to secure an order as result of the enquiries by law of averages we should get one soon.

Steven Dent, D3 Manufacturing Ltd / Heaterbands Oct 10,2013

PlastikCity is a refreshing breath of fresh air, which is much needed for the British manufacturing industry. For too long now it has been common practice to source materials and hardware from oversea's and with the economic climate changing for the better, PlastikCity is fast becoming the central source to connect with British suppliers. These manufacturers and supplies are all based in the U.K. with the intention of driving purchasing towards local/national companies. We have made new relationships through the website, and look forward to making many more in the future.
