SPECIALIST AREAS

We are an established provider of technical injection moulded products to the medical, water management, electronics, and defence sectors. Our experience in injection moulding for medical, dental and life sciences stretches back more than 25 years - and we've continued to innovate ever since. We are the market leaders when it comes to helping businesses replace metals and other materials with plastics across a range of demanding applications.

DEVELOPMENT FACILITIES

Our in-house specialisms allow us to handle your entire New Product Introduction (NPI) process on time and within budget.

From close collaboration during concept development to rapid prototyping to significantly cut the cost of your production, we have every part of your project covered. Our services include prototype and production tooling at our in-house tool room and machine shop, where we can advise on the best materials and methods to bring your product or component to the market.

We can handle pre-production part validation through 'golden samples' and sophisticated sign-off procedures, and we take care of production - from optimisation and cost evaluation to batch approval, quality inspections, tool modifications and critical dimensional analysis. Whatever your new product, we're here to help.

Our new, purpose-built metrology department houses the latest technology, so we’re able to offer our customers metrology to the highest standard on every part we produce.
