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.

People working from home, video conferencing, and adopting all manner of digital technologies to facilitate sharing or just getting the job done were embraced at break-neck speed.

In addition to this obvious growth area were products manufacturers for the appliance, DIY and construction sectors.
