Why is plastic injection moulding reshoring to the UK

Plastic injection moulding is currently experiencing a resurgence, reshoring back to the UK. This reshoring trend is not exclusive to the plastic injection moulding industry, a recent study has published that around half of businesses in the UK have actively re-shored part of their operations or have been considering doing so.

Re-shoring is the practice by which British businesses stop outsourcing production to China and other typically low-cost, high-volume countries and bring it home to the UK. Reports indicate that the language barriers, distance and quality of goods produced have sparked a revival in business reshoring.

CJ Tool and Mouldings, a plastic injection moulding company operating in the UK, have an experienced team who understand the reshoring process. Our team will first carry out on-site or off-site tooling reviews to understand any modification requirements. To ensure you plastic injection moulding re-shore is a smooth transition, we’ll work closely with your business to understand required stock holdings and project timelines to ensure there is no interruption to your business or customers.
