Award-winning plastics injection moulding manufacturer, Boddingtons, enjoyed a successful exhibition at Southern Manufacturing 2016, fielding enquiries and orders from new and existing customers, OEM businesses, inventors and product designers and developers.
Business development manager Tony Ayley said that ‘we had an excellent show. We have accordingly rebooked our space for next year’s exhibition. The Southern Manufacturing visitor footfall was good, and we got to meet with a wide variety of companies and individuals, most of whom are located in the South and South East of the UK.’
Boddingtons has ensured that the manufacturing services it offers meet the full spectrum of customer needs, and that the company continues to excel in the world of contract injection moulding.

Ayley notes that ‘today’s customers can pick and choose from any and all the services we offer; from design and engineering assistance, tool production, leading to volume injection moulding and assembly.
Boddingtons current factory expansion and financial status – backed by holding company Rubicon – also gives added confidence to would-be purchasers and specifiers in today’s credit-wary market conditions.
Boddingtons credentials – for high quality and cost-effective injection moulding – have been honed over the past sixty years and currently consist of two main strands; technical moulding and medical/cleanroom moulding.
In recent years, product design skills have brought awards and accolades for the Marden-based business. Last October 2015, for example, saw Boddingtons celebrate winning the Plastics Industry Product Design Award for the third year in a row.
All manufacturing programmes at Boddingtons come on line through the company’s gated New Product Introduction (NPI) process. This helps ensure that the customer’s financial and timeline risks are minimized.
A constant flow of product innovation has enabled Boddingtons to treble its turnover; from £5m in 2010 to £15m in 2015. A factory extension is currently underway and will double the manufacturing footprint of the business when completed in June 2016.
