Carin joined us around 6 years ago and has become a critical member of the team.
As administrator, Carin is a main point of contact for both customers and colleagues alike, as well as suppliers. Most of our customers will get to know Carin well, and so will our supplier as her role concerns processing incoming sales orders/enquiries and procurement, which is vital to the smooth running of the organisation.
Carin thrives on the variety of tasks keeping the schedules on track and is very good at it too!
In her spare time, Carin loves nothing more than spending time with her Grandchildren, eating Carrot Cake or having a well-deserved rest in her Caravan.
Kevin has been in the industry for 36 years and with our firm for 21 years. For the past 12 years, Kevin has lived in New Zealand; unusual, but it works surprisingly well.
Kevin works with clients to help ensure new tools are optimised for the injection-moulding process to follow. He says the role stays interesting after all this time because he works with clients from so many different industries with such a wide variety of needs and wishes.
Hobbies include fishing in his 6m boat, cruising around in his MGF and restoring his MK2 Jag!
Anil has been with us for 12 years and looks after our finances and administrative
procedures, amongst other things. Far from dull, Anil and his role is crucial to our business.
At the simplest level, he covers payroll, invoices, credit control, month-end reporting and all
the normal HMRC submissions. He is also the first contact for Human Resources matters and
any medium-term contact purchasing, such as energy sourcing and leasing not to mention IT
issues, planning & implementation.
Rather than hiding behind a keyboard, he enjoys his contact with clients & suppliers, and
being thrown a seemingly strange idea to consider. Whilst the job title has remained thesame for 10 years, the role has certainly developed to keep it interesting.
When not engrossed in figures and reports for demanding bosses, he is a DIY enthusiast with
a keen interest in motorsports and music.
Brett, our new Production Manager, has been with us for over 4 years. Having previous Production and Works Management experience, Brett is looking forwards to taking our Mouldshop and Production to the next level.
Brett has been with us for 4 years now, at first as an Injection Moulding Technician, and now as our Production Manager.
Having previous experience as Production and Works manager, Brett is the perfect fit.
Always happy and eager, Brett loves the diversity of the jobs we do.
When not perfecting the moulding processes and running the mouldshop, he enjoys fishkeeping of the marine kind! His spare time is spent with his wife, 3 children and of course, his beloved fish.

Mark is rarely in direct contact with clients but is still excited to hear they are happy with the outcome of his work.
After work, you can find Mark in the gym and then relaxing at home with his partner and family, having a well-deserved rest.
David joined us in 2016 after 41 years in the Engineering industry and has proved to be as dependable as he is experienced.

When he isn’t hard at work, David loves to spend time with his children and grandchildren, cycling, reading or indulging his keen interest in music.
