Mansfield mayor Tony Egginton took time out to visit an award-winning company in Forest Town.
The mayor spent a morning at Plastek UK, a manufacturer of custom injection and blow moulded components on Crown Farm Way, where he was shown around and spoke at length with general manager, Mick Shaw.
Plastek’s clients include the owners of the world’s most famous brands including Lynx, Sure, Aptamil, Max Factor, Cillit Bang, and Airwick to name a few.
A number of awards have been picked up by the firm, most recently taking the ‘Processor of the Year’ title in the Plastics Industry Awards.
“This recognition from our own industry is very welcome,” said Plastek UK General Manager Mick Shaw, “and reflects a tremendous amount of work and real commitment to the future.”
And the future for the firm looks positive with plans to expand the site which Mr Shaw hopes will bring with it more jobs.
