Patrick Burke with the end capping
Wellingborough-based Belgrade Polymer Products celebrated manufacture of its 20 millionth product this week - a Square External Boss End Capping for PVC-U conservatory roof systems.
The company, which started out manufacturing components for the water treatment industry, has expanded over the past decade into a wide range of markets such as plumbing and heating, telecommunications, automotive and chemicals.
“Twenty million products is a significant achievement of which we’re all very proud. It seems fitting that Belgrade Polymer Products has reached this impressive milestone in its 40th anniversary year,” commented General Manager, Patrick Burke.
“As a specialist manufacturer of bespoke products tailored to clients’ individual requirements, we could not have reached this important milestone without the loyal support of our customers across many diverse industry sectors.”
Belgrade Polymer Products manufactures in a range of thermoplastic materials, including PP, LDPE, HDPE, HIPS and ABS. In recent months, it has continued to invest significantly in new equipment, including a Welex extruder and other improvements to its production process and rapid prototyping facilities to enhance capacity.
