Plastic injection moulder Glazpart is celebrating 30 years in the forefront of the industry with new investment and new products at its 
Banbury base.

Glazpart evolved from Hanley Precision tools in 1985 and since then the business has gone from strength to strength with a wider range of products and the acquisition of Pro mould, whose strengths are in the joinery, steel fabrication and promotional products.

Sales and marketing manager Dean Bradley said: “This milestone reflects a lot of commitment, hard work and investment from the team at Glazpart and we look forward to supporting our customers and developing leading edge solutions for the next 30 years.”

In recent times the business has been shortlisted in the National Fenestration Awards 2014 and has been investing for the future with over £1 million spent on capital investment and the launch of many new products.

The Wildmere Road-based firm offers a one-stop shop, working with the glazing and fenestration industries and the furniture sector, as well as offering bespoke products to meet specific requirements in the medical, automotive, electrical and packaging sectors.

A spokesman said: “Over time we have enhanced our capability such as a class 10,000 clean room, twin shot moulding and the latest tool room machinery.

“This will be reflected in new literature due to be launched to commemorate achievement of this milestone

“The team at Glazpart develop new projects from product and tooling design, to injection mould tool manufacture, injection moulding and surface finishing satisfying today’s ever more demanding customer needs. This is in addition to the development of our own product ranges to meet the needs of the fenestration and fabrication industries.

“For example we have the broadest range of injection moulded products for the window market, including trickle vents and glazing accessories supplied to profile houses, fabricators and installers alike.”
