Using a high quality Chinese toolmaker but project management and a guarantee by an established UK company provides a vital competitive boost for UK companies who need plastic components.

The need to save money on the manufacture of plastic injection moulded products has meant that UK companies have traditionally been forced to either pay UK production prices or endure the complications, risks and challenges of trying to deal directly with suppliers in the Far East…that is until now.

Many UK companies are now seeking a new 3rd way by going to UK based plastic injection moulding companies who already have established links with high quality low cost Chinese injection moulding tool makers.

Swindon based family run Toolcraft are an example of just such a company. Although they’ve been operating a plastic injection moulding and vacuum forming company for over 30 years, it’s their nurturing of a valuable business relationship with a Chinese toolmaker over time which is proving particularly attractive to their customers today.

Toolcraft’s M.D. Russell Hemsworth explains “The reality is that we are now part of a global economy. The attraction for our customers is simple – they get high quality moulding tools at a much lower cost than if they were made in the UK. We project manage the whole thing and ensure that it’s a great quality product. The customer only has to deal with us. We absorb all the risk and the customer gets all the savings”.

Toolcraft’s good relationship with the Chinese toolmaker over the last 5 years means that Toolcraft are able to provide the maker with a full brief and spec of the required tool and handle all the importation paperwork and communications on behalf of the end customer.

Furthermore Toolcraft keep the customer updated on progress of the tool during manufacture, test the tool when it arrives in the UK and sort out any issues before it ever reaches the end customer, and guarantee the quality of the tool.

Once the finished plastic injection moulding tool is made Toolcraft are also able to produce the customer’s mouldings here in UK thus giving customers a continuous and fast supply of plastic parts. Servicing of the Tool can also be carried out by Toolcraft in the UK so the tool will not need to be sent back to China.
