High Volume Custom Injection Moulding
Lettergold Plastics Ltd specialise in high volume custom moulding and serves a wide range of industries and market sectors. The company operates PLC controlled injection moulding machines which are all from the Sandretto company. The company processes a wide range of thermoplastic materials and for food contact items we have a class 10,000 clean-room facility. We also conduct post mould finishing activities such as ultra-sonic welding, chrome plating, foil blocking, brass insert placement and 'value added' assembly work. We have in-house computer aided design facilities and a tool room for prototyping and repairs. We work closely with a number of specialist mould makers and take responsibility for delivery of your project's mould.
Des and Eileen Drummond started the forerunner of the Lettergold group in the late 1970s. The name Lettergold came from an off the shelf company formation with intent to change the name but affection for it grew and it is still with us today. Originally the company specialised in domestic water treatment chemicals and was the original manufacturer of the Mangers Protex brand, which during the 1980s was the only competitor to the leading brand beginning with the letter 'F'.
Previously Des and Eileen had run a successful business treating industrial boilers under maintenance contracts.
Their new venture even blow moulded its own bottles and injection moulded the lids and sold excess capacity to the plastics industry in general.
In the late 1990s the company helped launch the successful Salamander Corrosion Guard range. British Gas used these inhibitors and cleaners throughout the 'noughties' for their service contracts and the products we make today remain backwardly compatible with these tried and tested formulations, which have been protecting systems for over 30 years.
In 2004 Des and Eileen retired and the company was taken over by their son Andy who had joined in the late 1980s.
In 2007 the company ventured into the private label market and the rest as they say is history!
