Plastek UK has won the Judges Special Award in the Best Factory Awards held in London on Friday 25th September.
The Judges said that “Plastek is a lean operation and the injection moulding machines run consistently at very high OEE levels. They have remarkable expertise in moulding and assembly and are very good at working closely with customers and on the optimum design for their particular product to reduce the cost of manufacture. The automatic assembly part of the operation is polished and incorporates a lot of poka-yoke devices such as cameras on the assembly lines.”
“They are not afraid to invest in the latest technology. They also maintain and repair their tools on site – something that comes out of their tool-making heritage in the US – so that they can immediately identify and neutralize problems.”
