Collaboration leads to finalist status

Andel Plastics are delighted to announce that they have achieved Finalist status in the prestigious Plastic Industry Awards. Having previously been winners in other categories, this is the first time for the category of Supplier Partnership of Toolmaker.

The collaboration with No Fuss Fill began during Covid lockdown, when WMG had to close its doors on projects. Having been recommended, Andel Plastics were able to assist with further refinement and improvements to the design. Both to improve the product and give a better all round cost effective solution. It was very important to No Fuss Fill, that the device be made in the UK. With its own toolroom in Tyseley, Birmingham, Andel Plastics were able to fulfil that criteria and be a complete solution.

Tooling was manufactured in house for all components, some of which were fortunate enough to fit into a set of standard insert sizes. These provides customers with more cost effective tooling by utilising a standard bolster that Andel offers to its customers wherever possible.

Whereas the award is for the toolmaking partnership, the No Fuss Fill device is injection moulded by Andel Plastics. Assembly, labelling and packaging is also done on site so that the finished product arrives with No Fuss Fill for customers.

Managing Director Helena Flowers said, “it is thankfully an increasing trend for entrepreneurs to want their designed products manufactured in the UK, with all the Quality that a British made product gives. Reduction in carbon footprint due to the whole product being produced on one local site. Working on this project with a fellow winner of a Woman Who Achieves Award has been a delight. With the added bonus of a potential award winning partnership as well, that is very special. “
