Bringing manufacturing back to the UK...

The UK is experiencing a significant rise in the reshoring of contract manufacturing, as well as a rise in the exporting of UK based injection moulded expertise to suppliers on the continent.

As companies continue to navigate the hidden costs of outsourcing, combined with quality issues and complex supply chain dynamics, the case for reshoring tooling and manufacturing to the UK has grown stronger.


Utilising highly experienced mould process engineers makes it possible to adopt problematic tools on occasion. Combined with a cleanroom moulding and packaging capability Data Plastics can offer a flexible production facility to suit individual customer requirements.

We are able to solve complex and innovative challenges as well as maintaining older tooling through stringent tool maintenance support.

Data Plastics are your ideal partner for both new tooling and resource tooling injection moulding.

Our reshoring capabilities include; –
  • Tool Trialling
  • Tool Development and Validation
  • Mould Process Engineering
  • Problematic Tool Adoption
  • Cleanroom Moulding & Packaging
  • Flexibility in production to suit customer specific requirements

Total Cost of Ownership

Understanding and embracing the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) results in a reduction in subcontract management, production, quality, and transportation costs.

As a UK based manufacturer Data Plastics could offer shorter lead times without reliance on air or sea freight to delay production or delivery. Reducing the impact on the environment resulting from the use of ocean and air freight also reduces a company’s’ carbon footprint.

With a local partner offering design innovation and process engineering support, no language or time difference barriers exist to prevent product development.

Located in the UK, mould tooling processes become more traceable. With careful monitoring of every stage in the manufacturing process the quality of finished parts is controlled.


“At Singer Instruments we have ‘a responsibility to science’. Through the consistent delivery of quality components, on-time and competitively priced, Data Plastics plays an important role in ensuring we add value to the science and the scientific community we serve.”
