North East-based tooling and plastic injection moulding manufacturer, Omega Plastics, is celebrating its tenth year in business with the recent awarding of ISO/TS 16949:2009, the global standard for the automotive sector.
Since its launch in 2006, The Omega Plastics Group has experienced significant growth in the sector by producing components for Tier One suppliers to various manufacturers, including Aston Martin and Nissan.
“The automotive sector is hugely competitive throughout its supply chain and any business that has aspirations to succeed and grow within it has to consistently deliver the very highest standards. By securing this prestigious quality award in our tenth year of operation, The Omega Plastics Group has demonstrated it has the capability and experience to work alongside some of the biggest names in the industry,” commented Paul Anderson, Group Quality Manager at Omega.
Since the business started, The Omega Plastics Group has operated under ISO 9001 and has supplied a wide range of sectors, experiencing strong growth across its portfolio particularly in automotive, medical devices and FMCGs.
Last month, the company announced it was forecasting a 50 percent increase in turnover this year to around £8.5m.
Group Managing Director, Dave Crone, commented: “The business has grown exponentially since I launched it at Team Valley, Gateshead in 2006. Since then we have moved into additional and larger premises, creating more than 70 jobs and expanding our production capability. Our 2015 merger with Signal Plastics brought two successful and innovative businesses together, further strengthening our position in the market for prototype development, specialist tooling and plastic injection moulding. Achieving ISO/TS 16949:2009 provides a great springboard into our second decade.”
As well as its sites in Blyth and Hartlepool, The Omega Plastics Group also has a facility in Washington, Tyne & Wear.
