Faulkner Moulds has been shortlisted for the third year running in the ‘Supplier Partnership: Toolmaker’ category at the 2018 Plastics Industry Awards.
The Yorkshire-based Toolmaker won the coveted award in 2016 for what the judges called, “an exemplary example” of a toolmaker taking ownership of a project and successfully working in partnership with their customer.
Specialising in complex tooling solutions, and product and tooling development and design, the company uses Design for Manufacture principles to optimise manufacturing quality and cost-efficiency for their customers.
This year, the company has been shortlisted for successfully delivering a major project for BCA Group, in the leisure and automotive industry – 4 tools, weighing 4 tonnes, in just 5 months! With extremely challenging delivery timescales, their customer would have lost significant business if the tooling was late.
Described by BCA Group as, “Honest, reliable and transparent”, Faulkner Moulds pulled out all the stops and delivered every one of the tools early, putting their customer in a comfortable, advantageous position. The toolmaker solved several problems, incorporating innovative tooling solutions, without compromising their customer’s delivery date, quality requirements or budget.
Furthermore, all four tools moulded right first time, on size, with no flash or other issues. They continue to run efficiently, supported by Faulkner Moulds’ post-delivery guarantee.
The products are 100% made and sold in the UK, and now exported to Europe. As Wayne Boyd, Sales and Marketing Director of BCA Group commented:
“Faulkner Moulds are a rare breed in this field. Excellent quality, on time, every time, no exceptions. I have nothing but praise for this professional toolmaker”
