“IN TODAY’S COMPETITIVE LANDSCAPE, TO SUCCEED OVER THE LONG TERM, YOU’VE GOT TO BE THE COMPANY THAT FACILITATES TRUE PARTNERSHIP. THE COMPANY, THE PEOPLE, THAT CAN ALWAYS BE RELIED ON.
THAT’S WHO WE ARE.”
RELATIONSHIPS - BE IT WITH OUR CUSTOMERS, EMPLOYEES, OR SUPPLIERS - ARE THE FOUNDATION OF OUR SUCCESS AND ARE OUR UNRELENTING PRIORITY.
WHERE IT ALL STARTED
Established in 1974, MGS Technical Plastics is a family-owned plastic injection moulding company. Our headquarters in Blackburn opened in 2013 and includes both offices and a factory; it is home to our team of experts consisting of highly trained moulding technicians, toolmakers, quality engineers and multi-skilled operatives.
On the path to becoming a £20-million plastic injection moulder, by 2022, we expect to invest in a second site to ensure that we can continue to offer the capacity and speed that our clients require.
With recent investments in machinery, technologies, and people exceeding £2 million we are set to achieve our target turnover of £10-million in 2020.
THE VALUES WE MOULD BY:
- Always pursue knowledge as though it is the most important thing you can do. Learn and improve every day.
- Our principles set us apart. They should never be compromised. Be conscientious, honest, and fair in everything you do.
- Without awareness, we cannot grow as individuals or as a company. Be alert, conscious in your decision making, and tuned in to our performance.
LEADING THE WAY
Our leadership team has been integral to the recent growth and success we've experienced. The team's technical, operational, sales, and business expertise has been instrumental in driving the company forward.
Our Directors all came from apprenticeship backgrounds and champion a strong training culture with continuous professional and personal development for everyone.
Making smarter choices, achieving more with less, and facilitating innovation for a more sustainable economic and environmental future.
From recycling and reuse of plastics to optimising the production process and understanding the true carbon footprint of our material choices, we focus on being educated, proactive, and deliberate in our practices.
Sustainability is integral to the working practices of the business. Every team member is made aware of our commitment and encouraged to make ethical decisions that not only go beyond compliance but also positively impact the environment and our stakeholders.
MAINTAINING THE HIGHEST QUALITY STANDARDS
Our quality assurance procedures are backed by our recently audited IATF16949 accreditation, the latest recognised international quality standard for the automotive sector. We have 19 injection moulding machines, ranging in size from 35 to 900 tonnes, allowing us to manufacture products of various sizes. We continually invest to increase our capability, which is evidenced by our recent addition of robots, a 3D printer, and an overhead crane.
Team MGS is passionate, proactive, and positive with a strong commitment to delivering excellence. The common values that we share unites us all, resulting in a staff retention level that is the envy of other companies in our sector.
We are proud of the safe and secure environment we have created, which empowers and leads in equal measure.
COMMITTED TO OUR LOCAL COMMUNITY
From raising funds for good causes to taking on community challenges and volunteering, our team consists of people who are usually the first to pitch in, stand up, and have fun doing so.
Our MD helps steer the regeneration of our local town, whilst many of our employees raise funds for causes close to their heart and even run 10 km every year for a local charity.
BEHIND EVERY PERFORMANCE IS A TEAM OF EXCEPTIONAL PEOPLE.
PROACTIVE. PASSIONATE. POSITIVE.
At the core of our business is the culture our people have cultivated through decades of teamwork, innovation, and growth.
A dedication to learning and an attitude that would be the envy of any company in any
