ADDITIONAL SERVICES

Plastic injection mouldings often need to be machined or assembly with other components. We have the expertise, flexibility and facilities to add the finishing touches required. This includes sonic welding, machining, gluing and multi-component assembly.

We are happy to supply complete sub-assemblies, therefore avoiding additional operations to be carried out by you or another subcontractor. If you require a complete product ready for onward shipment to your customer, without further additional work or re-packaging, we will do our very best to help you.
