The challenges Plastic Injection Moulding in 2021
A year which started with Brexit, a third lockdown and now moving into raw material shortages has seen continued growth for Tex Plastics.
Great support at group level has put us in a good place
With 2020 seeing an increase in combined sales of precision injection moulding and post moulding operations against a backdrop of challenges previously not experienced, it pays to reflect and learn. Were we just lucky? What did we do to put us in this current position? If I analyse what I think were key contributors to our current successes, it would have to be the level of support provided by the group. With a panel of business experts providing a sounding board for the Tex Plastics management teams business plan, short and long term goals. It has enabled us to move forward with great confidence.
An element of luck, but there’s no substitute for flexibility
As the old adage goes; ‘It is not the strongest of the species that survives, nor the most intelligent that survives. It is the one that is most adaptable to change.’ I think the strategic plans and goals developed by the Tex Plastics management team have been robustly tested through the group approval process. However, what’s more important is that in going through this process our management team had to always consider all the possible dynamics. What’s the best thing that could happen if we made this decision? What’s the worst thing? The flexibility in our manufacturing and ability to adapt to the dynamic changes of the past 18 months has been the key to our current success. That is something that runs through Tex Plastics at a strategic level right through the business to the people that make everything happen. As Tex Plastics Managing Director, I reflect with pride at how everyone in the business has played their part during what has been the most challenging time on a multitude of levels.
