Sourcing production and tooling

Over almost 20 years we have developed a network of great manufacturing partners in many sectors. And have got to know their strengths and weaknesses. This puts us in a strong position to be able to recommend certain suppliers for certain requirements.

We can either introduce you to the best supplier for your particular needs or source the parts and deal direct with the supplier or manufacturer on your behalf.

This means that, if you want, we can offer you a full ‘turn-key’ service, where we design, source and deliver the finished product to you complete.

Even if you already have a network of manufacturers and suppliers, we may still be able to help in introducing suppliers that may provide a faster, better quality or more cost effective solution.

Injection moulded plastic parts feature in most new products nowadays and all these parts will need mould tools which are likely to be a significant investment. Getting good quality tooling at a reasonable price can be a lottery if you do not know the right sources. Making a mistake here can be very costly.

We work closely with many toolmaking and injection moulding companies and we can source tooling or parts in the UK or China.

Sourcing tooling from China and the Far East can save money, but may not always be the right solution, especially if you anticipate alterations and development work to be carried out on the mouldings after the tooling is completed.

We also have regular suppliers for: Castings, sheet metalwork, vacuum forming, pressings, machining, fixings, electronics, PCB manufacture, 3D printing, adhesives and many more.
