FAULKNER MOULDS WINS 2018
UK 'TOOLMAKER OF THE YEAR' AWARD IT'S A RARE BREED - “HONEST, RELIABLE AND TRANSPARENT”
  Faulkner Moulds is the proud winner of the prestigious 2018
’Supplier Partnership: Toolmaker’ category at the 2018 Plastics Industry Awards.
It is the second time the
Yorkshire-based toolmaker has won the cov- eted award. In 2016, Faulkner Moulds won for what the judges called, “an exemplary example” of a toolmaker taking ownership of a project and successfully working in part- nership with its customer.
This year, the company won for successfully delivering a major project for BCA Group, in the leisure and automotive industry – four tools, weighing four tonnes, in just five months! With extremely challenging delivery time scales, BCA would have lost significant business if the tooling was late.
Managing Director, Duncan Faulkner, said: “It is phenomenal to win this award again and is all thanks to our fantastic team, who work to the highest standards in all they do”.

able and transparent”, Faulkner Moulds pulled out all the stops and delivered every one of the tools early, putting their customer in an advantageous position.
The toolmaker solved several problems, incorporating innovative tooling solutions, without compromising its customer’s deliv- ery date, quality requirements or budget.
All four tools moulded right first time, on size, with no flash or other issues. They con- tinue to run efficiently, supported by Faulkner
Moulds’ post-delivery guarantee. As Wayne Boyd, Sales and Marketing Director of BCA Group said: “Faulkner Moulds is a rare breed in this field. Excellent quality, on time, every time, no exceptions. I have nothing but praise for this professional toolmaker.”
