Omega Plastics set for rapid growth in 2016

Following its merger with Washington, UK–based Signal Plastics last year, Omega Plastics (Blyth, UK) is set for a 50% increase in turnover this year. The tooling and plastic injection molding company announced that it is going from strength to strength because of a rapidly growing order book at its Blyth and Hartlepool sites in the United Kingdom.

A supplier to the automotive, medical and other markets, Omega Plastics projects an increase in turnover to £8.5 million ($1.426 million) and has added three new members to its sales team.

Business Development Manager Michael Winship has been with the company for three years managing business in the north of England and Ireland. He’s been joined by Andy Smith to manage and develop business opportunities in the south of England, and new Business Development Manager Paul Walker who oversees the automotive sector across the United Kingdom.

Technical Sales Director Norman Hoggett explained, “We’re now moving from a consolidation phase to growth. Much of the increase in orders is due to high levels of organic growth combined with substantial volumes of new business mainly in the automotive and medical sectors.

“Closer to home, we’re about to open a new 42,000-square-foot automotive manufacturing plant in Washington to increase our production capacity and meet demand in the sector. We’ve also invested in our sales team and extended the range of services we offer through significant investment in our molding and tooling capabilities to enable us to cater to more automotive customers with high-volume projects.

“The new Washington facility is ideally located in close proximity to several other automotive manufacturers including Nissan and Calsonic Kansel,” Hoggett added.

The next 12 months promise to be an exciting time for Omega’s business, according to Hoggett. “Our priorities include further investment in people, plant and machinery as we work to establish Omega  Plastics as a serious UK contender in the prototype development, production tooling and injection molding industry,” he said.

Omega Plastics currently employs 70 people between its sites in Blyth, Washington and Hartlepool.
