Experienced Plastic Moulding Company Based in the West Midlands


For several years I had a product which I had manufactured in China ( this was based upon the advice I received from a Business “Guru” when setting up my business ).

Initially everything was fine with this, but over time problems mounted – the quality of the parts I received from China worsened, deliver dates were regularly missed and prices kept increasing. After much soul searching I decided to bring my tools back to the UK and find a moulder over here – this hopefully would eliminate most of the problems I was having.

Where to start though ? I googled Plastic Injection Moulders and found pages and pages of companies – good start or so I thought………… Starting at the top and working my way downI proceeded to ring these companies – over the first two days of this I spoke to 27 different Plastic Injection Moulders.

Most of the companies I spoke to were clearly not interested, several took my details and promised someone would get back to me shortly ( they didn’t ) and some said “This wasn’t the sort of work they did ( despite their websites saying no job too big or small ) . All in all a very disappointing couple of days.

Day 3 started off in the same vein – a real lack of interest or enthusiasm from the people I spoke to. I then came across Moldwel – the website stating they were a small, family run business in the Midlands – from the initial phone conversation with Andrew I got a “good feeling” – very positive and clear in what they could do and how the process ( to move tools and start production in the UK ) would work. We arranged a site visit for a week later where I was to take samples and provide further information to allow Andrew to offer me a quote.

At the meeting again I was impressed with the enthusiasm of Moldwel – they made me feel welcome and valued. Andrew worked out some prices for me their and then ( slightly higher than I was paying from China ) but I went away with a positive vibe.
I offered the moulding contract to Moldwel the next day which they duly accepted and then we had to wait another 3 weeks for the tools to arrive from China. Once tools were on site at Moldwel we quickly received samples ( much better quality than the parts we were receiving from China ) and duly passed them off.

We have now been working with Moldwel for 9 months – in that time we have developed a string business relationship – I find Moldwel very easy to deal with – they are easy to contact, always available to speak, the mouldings they send me are of excellent quality and we have had no issues what-so-ever since moving the tools to them – I would have no hesitation in recommending Moldwel Products Ltd as a Plastic Injection Moulding Company .
