Pentagon Plastics Interplas 2017 Stand

Showcasing Tooling Services at Interplas 2017

Interplas UK is one of the most highly anticipated shows within the plastics industry and Pentagon Plastics were thrilled with the results of the three-day exhibition event.

The show takes place every three years and this was the second time that Pentagon exhibited with a stand, product displays, and space to meet potential customers and industry enthusiasts. It was also the first time the Pentagon Plastics stand incorporated the newly acquired arm of Phoenix Engineering.

Tooling services

The extended tooling services that Phoenix brings to the Pentagon Plastics Group were well received and of much interest to those visiting the stand. We would go as far to say that sourcing UK toolmakers is becoming ever higher on people’s agenda when looking to place new work. This brings hope for a further boost to the industry in the coming years.

With plastics processing and manufacture the hot topic of the event, we were thrilled with the calibre of new leads that we generated. As we have some projects ready to go and others in the development stages, we’re confident we will see a good return on our investment into the show.

Future growth

We were also excited to see that both our mould shop and toolroom staff were able to source relevant information on suppliers for their areas and identify potential machinery investments that could enhance our production in the future as we continue to grow.

Although events of this nature require fairly heavy business investment with the cost of stand, staffing, accommodation and related advertising, the opportunities that they present are invaluable. They include lead generation but also customer and supplier contact, networking and enhancing company profile.

We are already looking forward to Interplas 2020! If you have a query about any of our services, please get in touch on 01403 264397. We look forward to hearing from you.
