Exciting new technology product order won in lockdown
25 January 2021
Due to a non-disclosure agreement there's not a lot we can talk about but what we can shout about are the reasons this new client chose Tex Plastics.
Plastic housing for external product to be exposed to high levels of UV
With the technical sales team working remotely, the lockdown enquiry came in from a global technology manufacturer. The brief was complex and as a potential new supplier Tex Plastics needed to answer the due diligence questions, in addition to preparing a commercial proposition for the actual brief. The exterior technology product housing will be exposed to high levels of UV, so a UV stable polycarbonate protects the colour and prevents it from degrading and becoming hard and brittle. The lockdown procurement process was an example of what's possible and how things are likely to change the other side of this pandemic. With virtual presentations, including a factory tour of the injection moulding and post moulding operations plus a technical Q&A session - the engineering team at Tex Plastics won the new business.
Why did the global technology manufacturer choose Tex Plastics?
- Technical knowledge
- Robotic Cell capabilities
- In-house post moulding operations capabilities
These were the three core reasons Tex Plastics outshone the competition. At this time of great uncertainty in the supply chain, with a global pandemic and the end of the Brexit transition period, the strength of in-house Tex Plastics capabilities sealed the deal.
