Helping you to get the best possible moulded plastic parts
The Edge in business means optimising the marginal differences. Our quarterly newsletter and moulded plastic parts news reveals how we help our customers realise this. Precision Plastic Injection 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.
As our clients look to reduce their finished products carbon footprint, Tex Plastics continue to deliver solutions whilst looking beyond the component to the bigger picture.
