Providing a full range of plastic injection tooling, moulding and added value services, the Group has enjoyed continued growth since its acquisition of high-volume plastic injection moulding specialist, Signal Plastics, in 2015.
In December 2016, the Group relocated Signal Plastics to a larger 43,500 sq ft factory unit in Bentall Business Park, Washington and invested over £1 million in new injection moulding presses and overhead robotic equipment. Earlier this year, the group merged its two Omega Plastics sites in Blyth and Hartlepool into a 45,000 sq ft facility on the Team Valley Trading Estate providing more than double the capacity of the two sites combined and new Group headquarters. Several strategic appointments have followed during 2019 across the executive, commercial and operations teams.
The updated website (www.omegaplasticsgroup.co.uk) brings together the combined services offered by Omega Plastics and Signal Plastics and a view of both facilities and key contacts, into one Group website.
Craig Swinhoe, Group Managing Director commented:
“We started the decade as a single business with a team of 25 people based in a 10,000 sq foot site in Blyth focussing predominantly on rapid tooling. However, through acquisition, organic growth and investment, the Group has grown its turnover nearly ten-fold and we are now proud to be based in two fantastic facilities, within 6 miles of each other, with 88,500 sq feet of space and over 100 exceptionally talented, technical, operational, commercial and financial colleagues.
As the Group has grown and we have continued to invest in facilities, equipment and people, so has our range of services and the sectors that we help to provide solutions in. It was important that our website reflected that journey, our current capabilities and our ambition”
Alongside new photography and a video tour of the facilities, the website features a cleaner look and feel with refreshed Group branding, making it easier for customers to get in touch.
Of the updated website, Peter Sayer, Group Commercial Director said:
“We are very proud of the range of solutions we provide our customers. The launch of an updated website gives us an opportunity to showcase those.
The Group offers a much broader range of services than it did even 5 years ago, and it is important that our website represents that. We have, what we believe is, one of the largest dedicated plastic injection toolrooms in the UK offering a full range of rapid and production tooling, as well as offshore tooling with full design for manufacture and project management support throughout a tooling project. Across two large moulding facilities we have the flexibility to provide a range of low and high volume moulding and a range of value add services where we work with our customers to support them on any challenges they face in their supply chain, whether that is assembly, validation, logistics or supply chain management.
We also wanted to be able to share new imagery and video so customers, suppliers, or prospective customers and suppliers, who have not had a chance to visit our facilities, or who may not have visited the business in a number of years ago, can have the opportunity to see the size and scale of what we can offer to support their businesses.”
