Formaplex has commissioned a further 5 injection moulding presses to increase their component production capabilities.

Following investment of £15 million over recent years, the purchase of 5 new Negri Bossi mould presses, including a 2,000T model totals a further £1 million investment. This will increase their impressive plant list to include 16 injection mould presses, ranging from 3,500t - 55t.

The additional machines will increase capacity for prototype and low volume production runs by 50%. Tool trial capacity will also increase. As a fully integrated services supplier, their facilities are also used by customers for off-line tool trials and development validation before taking tools back to their production lines. Formaplex operate round the clock to meet time critical delivery schedules.

Mark Swan, area sales manager for Negri Bossi said, “Since we were first approached by Formaplex in 2004 to supply them with injection moulding machines we at Negri Bossi have worked very closely with them and have become an integral part of the extraordinarily successful journey that Formaplex has experienced.

Simon Pattrick, mould and assembly manager commented: “Negri Bossi have consistently supported the rapid growth of Formaplex with reliable, high quality moulding machinery. Our business is founded on our ability to deliver innovative, high quality products in rapid timescales to prestigious customers in many demanding sectors. The level of service and agility of the support we receive from Negri Bossi ensures we are able to achieve this.”
