2021 a year to build on the investment

Tex Plastics continues to invest in providing greener, more efficient and self-sufficient injection moulding manufacturing solutions.

4th January 2021

In-house control of more processes provides greater cost savings

The past few years have seen the steady roll-out of a machine replacement programme with a focus on increased productivity and lower energy usage. This investment has been influenced by our continual review of greener injection moulding solutions. With new, more energy efficient, productive injection moulding presses, it means Tex Plastics can achieve our commitment to lowering our carbon footprint per part manufactured. This combined with more in-house process, like our spray booth, assembly processes, printing and other post moulding operations keeps the miles per plastic part down. 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. Tex Plastics offer a totally integrated process that results in a one-stop finished product solution to reduce your overall production costs.

Advantages of one site Plastic injection moulding and post moulding operations

Having a single site where a plastic part can be designed, 3D printed, tooling designed and have plastic parts precision injected moulded isn’t enough. Our goal was to deliver a full service offering from applying decorative finishes, to sub-assembly and holding stock. Transferring in-house or out-sourced third party processes to Tex Plastics provides our clients with a totally integrated process that results in a one-stop finished product. It means fewer miles per component but during the lockdowns, it also means reducing cost, lead-times and unnecessary supply chain management headaches.

In-house Post Moulding Operations shorten lead times

Whether you need multi-colour printing and finishing options (chrome plating, decorative spraying, RFI shielding); electronic component assembly, product testing, calibration and final assembly of the product cell; Insertion of externally sourced components, assembly of parts and quality control of finished products – Tex Plastics have you covered!
