Amtek says its re-branding is a reflection of its passion for UK manufacturing
Amtek Plastics Limited has re-branded and re-named its business Amtek Plastics UK in a patriotic nod to its passion for UK manufacturing.
The Devon-based injection moulding and tooling company credits much of its success and growth in the last 18 months to re-shoring, with much of its work being won from companies bringing production back to the UK.
“We have helped out clients and new customer alike, to re-shore their current tooling and manufacture back from the Far East for us to manufacture their products and components here in the UK. This has removed the anxiety that these businesses have typically had when sourcing off shore,” explained Gayle Davie, Business Development Manager at Amtek.
“We have seen this trend escalating especially over the last 18 months, and as a business, we are proud to be British, and proud to be part of the UK manufacturing sector.”
The company says escalation in the number of customers approaching it to re-shore production back to the UK is driven by the need for quality and traceability, as well as accurate lead times and guarantees of delivery dates.
“We replaced the word ‘Limited’ with ‘UK’, as the more we can re-shore back here to the UK, the more jobs we can create. We have a very ambitious growth plan for the business, and we need the right people to help us expand,” Davie continued.
The company, which earlier this year was presented with a certificate of achievement as the runners up for the Business Excellence Growth Awards in Devon, has created an additional 11 jobs across the business to deal with the increase in production as a result of its growth over the last 18 months.
“As a nation, we have something really superb here in the UK, and we need to shout about it. The perception of UK manufactured products has always been high, and we need to be proud to once more say – ‘Made in the UK’,” Davie added.
“We have the skills and ability in this country – and at Amtek, we have the drive, determination and passion to see this succeed. This is why we have developed from Amtek Plastics Limited, to Amtek Plastics UK.”
