The disposables manufacturer and supplier has bought more machinery and added to its core team. The firm said that now is the time to build a stronger UK manufacturing presence to compete with imports.
Herald Plastics supplies to the bar, catering and hospitality sectors and are members of the Foodservice Packaging Association.
Herald Plastic managing director Yogesh Patel said: “We’ve been manufacturing a limited range of disposables since our inception almost 30 years ago. However, we feel that now the time is right to build on this area of productivity and to future-proof the business. We’re aiming to firmly position ourselves as a UK manufacturer that can provide a valid alternative to the current offering when it comes to catering disposables and we look forward to extending our contribution to the market having introduced new manufacturing capacity, including extra injection moulding machines.
“The directors have a shared, in-depth knowledge of manufacturing and we are keen to use our expertise, experience and know-how to drive this side of the business. The market is changing and the time is now right for UK manufacturing to experience its own renaissance – we aim to ride the crest of that wave.”
