Rutland Plastics has been in the plastics business for over 60 years.
We certainly look different today from when the company first started out injection moulding in back in 1956. We have grown significantly over the years with new facilities, more employees and more customers. However, the business is still privately owned by the same family, with the third generation in charge, and still based in Oakham in Rutland. We offer a full range of plastic injection moulding services from design, including Moldex3D, prototyping and mould making to injection moulding and a wide range of additional services such as machining and assembly.
We believe that knowlege is the key to our sucess and we have a strong link with many educational institutions and we are proud to have hosted ‘year in industry placement students’ from Loughborough University since the 1990s, many of whom we have employed after graduation. Having a student working with us brings benefits, not just for the students but for the business as well. The students bring knowledge of the latest technology, trends and ideas from the world of academia to Rutland Plastics and we provide experience in designing products across many sectors including: medical, consumer electronics, automotive and industrial engineering. Our students also learn to work with designers across the UK, Europe and The Far East. Our shared experiences over the years has helped develop a real life link between great design and real life manufacturing.
We also have apprentices throughout the company, who through cross departmental working, learn about design, toolmaking, the manufacturing process and quality control.
A career in manufacturing is both rewarding and varied with new challenges every day. To find out more please e-mail us at [email protected]
