Hillbrush Trade Moulding
As part of Hillbrush UK, Hillbrush Trade Moulding Division offers an injection moulding solution right the way through from initial design concept to production.
We control all aspects of the moulding process, from sourcing FDA and EU Food Contact Approved plastics if required, to ensuring the best mix of plastics is used in composite products.
Our state of the art moulding machines were purchased in 2014 and include an automated material feed system, an integrated cooling system and an overhead crane for quick mould changing.
Our moulding machines are highly regarded within the industry, and Hillbrush were finalists in Plastic & Rubber Weekly Magazine's Plastic Industry Awards. This award highlights companies who invest in the most energy efficient moulding machines. Our new equipment has reduced our power consumption by 50%.
Our modern Injection Moulding facility consists of eight of the latest injection moulding machines ranging from 90 tons to 380 tons locking force. Each machine has an automatic material feed system which takes the polymer from an internal material silo. This is supported by two automatic dosing systems for colour and other additives such as anti-microbial and metal detectable. We have the capabilities to mould most thermal plastic materials, Polypropylene, Polyethylene, Polycarbonates, ABS, Nylon and Acetal, and also glass or mineral-filled polymers.
Materials used include; POM, PA66, PP, ABS, Polycarbonate, GPPS, HIPS and HDPE. Speak to a member of our team to learn more about the materials we use.
Our pledge to the environment

Our enquiry process for trade moulding is as follows:
Send us your requirements using the enquiry form below or call us on 01747 860 494.
A member of our Product Development Team will contact you to discuss your requirements and gather any additional information that we may need.
You will need to provide a 3D CAD design and Product Specification Document which we use to produce an estimated cost of the mould tool and product.
Mould and part costs would be offered for approval at which stage the order would be placed.
The tooling is then manufactured and samples are produced for approval.
Once product is approved a standard is set for production.
Production is booked in and lead times are advised.
