About Us

Our experience and design knowledge means that when clients come to us they know we will deliver the best, most eye catching and innovative retail display solutions for their needs. The variety of markets that our clients come from speaks volumes for the adaptability and versatility of acrylic fabricated displays.

Perhaps it starts with a phone call, where ideas are shared and we can talk through specific needs. We then create visually realistic artwork to show how this may look.

If you would like to see a prototype to test the item, or to help pitch the concept to others, we will support you throughout the process.

We can offer advice on the best materials and processes depending on the product and where and how it will be used.

Some of our customers have been with us from the beginning some 16 years ago. They know we give 100% to all our projects, and trust our dedication, quality and workmanship.

Our Capabilities

IMG_3522Design – With over 50 years of experience in plastic fabrication we are able to design the most striking and cost effective display solutions to meet your needs. With 3D visualisation and the latest CAD-Cam software we can provide you with drawings that are not just pretty to look at but represent items that can actually be made.

Cut Sheet – We offer a full plastic cutting service, so large area sheets can be converted into any size or shape of panel.

CNC Routing – Our systems take data directly from out CAD-Cam software so our designs are faithfully replicated from the virtual to the actual. Our CNC capability effortlessly creates complex shapes and means we obtain the maximum yield from sheets to keep waste to a minimum.

Diamond Polishing – High quality Matte or Gloss polished edges give that high quality look and feel we all love.

Flame Polishing – Creating that perfect glass look finish to acrylic display pieces and taking off any sharp edges too!

Line Bending – Shaping materials with heat to give smooth flowing curves and bends to create the detail in your finished item. We can bend up to 2000mm wide and can mould more complex items with our digitally controlled 4 beam strip wire heaters.

Drape Moulding – Thermoforming panels in our oven create smoothly curved panels using male and female moulds to ensure accuracy.

Vacuum Forming – For high volume production we have 2 vacuum forming machines capable of moulding items up to 1220 x 915mm.

Digital Printing – We also have our own in house digital printing, mounting and laminating. We can apply full colour graphics and logos to your retail displays, ensuring that  corporate colours and guidelines are adhered to.

Our full plant list is available on request. Workshop visits are welcome and are available by appointment.

Environmental

What is acrylic?

Acrylic plastic refers to a family of synthetic, or man-made, plastic materials containing one or more derivatives of acrylic acid. The most common acrylic plastic is polymethyl methacrylate (PMMA), which is sold under the brand names of Plexiglas, Lucite, Perspex, and Crystallite. PMMA is a tough, highly transparent material with excellent resistance to ultraviolet radiation and weathering. It can be coloured, moulded, cut, drilled, and formed.

Is Acrylic recyclable?

Acrylic is a fully recyclable material, and there are various ways in which it can be put to use again. Large pieces of some acrylic plastics can be remodelled to form other useful objects. Chemical recycling where the acrylic is broken down into its constituents that can be used as new materials for manufacturing a new product is one way. The mechanical method of recycling involves the mechanical recovery of material from waste and gasification, which is an oxidation process. However, all of these methods can only be carried out in industrial areas.

We encourage consumers to recycle responsibly at the end of the product lifecycle. We are happy to receive returned acrylic items at the end of use to dispose of correctly.
We continue to look at other ways to keep waste to a minimum and recycle or reuse waste product. When we source our raw materials we ensure our supply chain conduct themselves in a responsible, ethical and environmentally friendly manner.
