Moulded Plastic Parts

Tex Plastics provides precision moulded plastic parts from two facilities, Barnstaple – providing injection moulding to the South West and Derby – providing injection moulding for the Midlands.

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.
