MBA and Aeroplas team effort boosts product quality and manufacturing efficiency

news aeroplas

Through a dynamic partnership with MBA Polymers, Aeroplas is optimising its manufacturing efficiency while helping us to fine tune the performance of our own products. As a leading European manufacturer of thermoplastic injection mouldings to the catering and horticulture industries, Aeroplas has been sourcing recycled plastics for more than 20 years. It began working with MBA in 2010 and hasn’t looked back.

“We’re delighted with MBA’s products and with our working relationship,” says Hardy Gakhal, Managing Director. “This is a real team effort. We provide detailed, constructive feedback to MBA which in turn allows the MBA team to optimise certain characteristics of the raw materials they supply to us. A great example of this is the work we’ve done to reduce brittleness and therefore melt temperatures, which has enabled us to use less energy at the manufacturing stage.”

MBA’s recycled plastic pellets are principally used by Aeroplas to produce flower pots and clothing hangers. Many of these hangers are supplied to Braiform, a company that provides reusable hangers and smart packaging solutions to the retail industry.

“Our product development team rapidly identified how our recycled plastic pellets could be enhanced to meet Aeroplas’ specific requirements,” says Gary Claypole, MBA Polymers. “We have also worked with Aeroplas on site to optimise its manufacturing processes. The company can now use MBA products on all its moulds and this is proving very effective in terms of improving cycle times.”
