North East plastics firm advises “relocation, relocation, relocation”

Award-winning North East England-based Omega Plastics advises that in the current industry climate relocating [reshoring] can reduce costs on logistics, material supply and packaging. This adds an element of reassurance for the customer that a product is being made in the United Kingdom and also helps to eliminate the risk of ‘currency fluctuation’.

Omega Plastics would like to express to new and existing customers thinking of reshoring “why not knock on Omega’s door”. For example, it has a 1,300-tonne production machine capable of producing plastic components up to a meter square and 5kg in weight.

The kind of products this piece of machinery is said to excel in turning around in high volume are well suited for the construction and white goods industries.

The list includes large panels for white goods; Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) covers, filtration systems and items for the construction industry (loft hatches, ventilation grills and drain covers).

Julian Jamieson, operations director for Omega Plastics, said: “The world of manufacturing is all about quality, costs and time. The trick is to find a healthy balance between all three. What we offer at Omega Plastics is a good quality product that can be shipped anywhere in the world. But in these current times of uncertainty when UK companies are being more cautious, then why not look closer to home when placing your next order.

“We have always prided ourselves at Omega Plastics in coming up with the best solutions and delivering the goods. We will explore every avenue of design and technology to produce what the client wants. Once a job has been booked, a team is assigned to create and monitor the production every step of the way. Reshoring doesn’t have to be a chore.”
