Tame Plastics Ltd, based in Tamworth, celebrated its first year of trading by inviting
local customers and suppliers to a party at which local MP Christopher Pincher presented
professional welding certificates to its employees.
Tame Plastics Ltd operate from a factory unit on the Castle Trading Estate on Lagrange
in Tamworth and produces specialist commercial vehicle bodies for leading UK customers.
Its first project was to build two fire engine bodies for John Dennis Coachbuilders,
based in Guildford, destined to enter service with Avon Fire & Rescue Service. Since
then the list of customers has grown steadily and it now employs eight full time
Neil Craggs, Managing Director, said “We chose Tamworth because historically it
has been the centre of a cluster of companies specialising in plastic fabrication.
We knew we could get highly skilled people here.
But we also recognised that customers are seeking the highest levels of comfort
when it comes to quality assurance. So our employees were put through the rigorous
TWI Plastic Welder training scheme which qualifies them as CSWIP certified plastic
welders. The qualification is aligned to the European standard approval testing
of plastic welders, EN 13067. This is a significant investment for a small company.“
He also paid tribute to the support he had received as a start-up from local businesses:
“there’s no question that without the fantastic contribution made by other companies
around here, it would have been much tougher”.
