Cygnet Plastics Ltd are plastic injection moulders based on the North Wales Coastline.
We were founded in 1958 as a small unit of 5,000 sq. ft. which has since expanded to 22,000 sq. ft. The site and building have recently undergone major refurbishment to the building and machines. We have 12 moulding machines in a range between 15 ton and 1380 tons & employ 20 staff.
Cygnet Plastics Ltd is a leading UK plastic injection moulding company.
There has been a plastic injection moulding company at this site in Colwyn Bay since John Prior Plastics was formed back in 1958.
The company was part of a small group of two plastic injection moulding companies. Our directors recognised the greater business potential of the site at Colwyn Bay and parted company with the other site in 2006.
In December 2008 Cygnet Plastics expanded its operations by taking over a Toolmaking firm and moving it into the premises in Colwyn Bay. By securing the services of an experienced Toolmaker to support the plastic injection moulding process, Cygnet Plastics enabled customers to have the option of having all their tooling requirements done in house.
In addition to acquiring the Tool room facility, in January 2009 when Marlin Products went into receivership, Cygnet Plastics stepped in.
This ensured that both Marlin’s existing customers and also new customers continued to have the opportunity to purchase the wide selection of high-quality plastic boxes and plastic carrying cases which had previously been available to them.
We have been working with some new and exciting innovative new products for the medical and public sector industries. These have been launched over the last two years and they are starting to grow with interesting results.
