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.

Our business is founded on our ability to deliver innovative, high quality products in rapid timescales to prestigious customers in many demanding sectors.
