ARBURG have been attending the Plastic Industry Awards for many years and have been a winners on numerous occasions. I have always found the awards to be a superb evening, where the plastics industry can come together to celebrate the best of our industry. Given that 2023 is a very special year for us as we are celebrating 100 years of the Hehl family, we thought it would be entirely appropriate to be a Platinum sponsor at the 2023 PIA's. We are looking forward to it!

Adreco Plastics are very proud of our participation and heritage at the annual Plastics Awards, and we passionately believe the importance to of celebrating the successes in UK plastics manufacturing. The PIA is the perfect way to bring the industry together and it is critical to showcase the brilliance amongst us. Having been nominated as finalists in the Toolmaker supplier category in both 2015 and 2016, we worked hard and were delighted to win that category in 2017. There is no doubt, that the accolade of the finalist and winner awards helped position Adreco Plastics as a top flight Toolmaker and Injection Moulder and we proudly use these achievements in our marketing. Following COVID we were particularly delighted to win the Toolmaking category again in 2021 and in 2022, win the Consumer product category and be nominated as a finalist in the Toolmaking supplier category. The PIA will always be one of the highlights of our calendar year and the STH Plastics group and its subsidiaries; Adreco Plastics and International Scientific Supplies will always look forward to supporting it.

Winning a Plastics Industry Award two years running has been an amazing achievement. Not just for the recognition of the business and the good work we are doing, but also to show our team that collectively their hard work does pay off. Recognition from our peers within the industry is priceless and goes a long way to showing we are on the right path with our business vision and the environmental goals we have set ourselves as a plastics manufacturer.
