As part of our continuing drive to make Plinth better, we have just completed moving the injection mould tools to Barkley Plastics in Birmingham.
I have been searching for months to find a company with the right machinery, capability, and perhaps most importantly approach to business and willingness to ‘make things happen’. I have high hopes that in Barkley Plastics, I have found a company with its roots in ‘real world engineering’, but with state-of-the-art tool room and moulding capabilities. They have been going since 1965, and now have 40 moulding machines, including 7 twin-shot machines.
All of the team I have met so far are cheerful, helpful, and committed to making Plinth all it can be. They love the product, and want to see it succeed. It is early days, but after months of frustration with the last moulder (Midland Plastic Solutions), I am feeling full of hope that we have turned a corner to begin a new chapter.
We are moulding the next production run now, as part of which we are trialling some exciting new colour and material combinations. Watch this space – I’ll post photos as soon as they’re ready.
