Hillbrush Trade Moulding
The Hillbrush Trade Moulding Division produces moulded products from concept to production. We also welcome enquiries for bespoke moulded products.
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 and rubber is used in composite products.
A Brief History
In 2011, as part of our site expansion, we acquired several moulding machines which allowed us to bring the facilities in-house, and by 2014 we had introduced all new state-of-the-art automated moulding machinery. This formed Hillbrush Trade Moulding.
Injection Moulding was introduced to support the production of plastic brush stocks and hygienic cleaning products.
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
We constantly strive to reduce our carbon footprint, and with the predominant use of plastics in moulding we strive to recycle and reduce waste to minimise the impact on the environment.
We hold an ISO 9001 Certification. This system sets out key quality management principles, emphasising the importance of strong customer focus, the motivation and implication of top management, the process approach and continual improvement.
Hillbrush is passionate about providing the highest level of customer service and producing superior quality products. ISO 9001 compliments our company ethos and ensures our rigorous quality control processes are upheld.
