Plastic moldings for lighting

(Manufacture to customer drawings)

This is another project where the original brief was simply to source some plastic moldings but it grew!  We then went on to adding value with reflective plating services (using specialist vacuum deposition of metal coatings), whilst all the time meeting ever stringent cosmetic standards from our customer.

One interesting point is how we are able to reduce the lead time for tooling and going into volume production.
