MAKING IT IN PLASTIC

Goodfish is a group of toolmaking, plastic injection moulding and vacuum-forming businesses with manufacturing, printing, assembly and design facilities in Cannock, Loughborough and Worcester.

Our injection-moulding machine size ranges from 35t to 1,000t. 

What are the 10 things that differentiate us from other ‘trade’ injection moulders and toolmakers?

  1. We run along lean principles – we live & breathe Kaizen

  2. We have our own, in-house product and tooling/mould design team – we have designed, manufactured and launched our own products under the brand names Stique and Goodfish

  3. We have in-house prototyping, printing & assembly skills

  4. We are supported by private equity investors, so can invest in new equipment, automation and software as & when required

  5. We are experienced at acquiring other injection moulding & vacuum-forming businesses – 5 in the last 6 years (Hi-Spec, Homelux, Hytech, Powell & Harber and DCI-Artform)

  6. Our management teams in Cannock, Loughborough and Worcester are a mixture of life-long, died-in-the-wool ‘trade’ injection moulders, vacuum-formers and toolmakers plus people who know there’s a world outside of moulding, vacuum-forming and toolmaking; they bring in new ideas and best practice from outside (e.g. Tier 1 automotive). The combination of industry experience and outside influence is very strong.

  7. Our skilled operators and technicians actually enjoy working for us – we have an award to prove it!

  8. Our customers appreciate our reliability – 99.9% OTIF and 48 PPM (2015)

  9. Goodfish Group manufacturing facilities operate systems and processes which are accredited to ISO 9001:2008, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 at our Cannock and Worcester facilities, and ISO 9001:2008 and OHSAS 18001 at our Loughborough facility.

  10. 30% of our output is exported to ‘low cost’ countries such as Poland, Czech Republic, Hungary, Turkey, India and China. We plan to set up a moulding facility in Slovakia in H2-18.

 

Quality is our religion; OTIF is our creed and value-for-money is what we aim to deliver. QCD.
