Precision Plastic Moulding - Giving You The Edge

Tex Plastics today operates as a member of TEX Holdings PLC from two facilities, Barnstaple - providing injection moulding to the South West and Derby - providing injection moulding for the Midlands.

Being plastic component manufacturers who add value is our No1 Focus

Precision plastic moulding starts with design-rationalisation built in at every stage. This results in you getting a plastic component manufactured with minimal waste because every element from design to assembly is done the most efficient way. Let us help you to streamline your component supply chain, reduce lead-times and maximise the cost-effectiveness of the component produced.
