Vacuum Forming

Do your plastic products need the perfect finish? Our vacuum forming process is your ideal solution.


Your merchandise or display components can’t show any defects. Aesthetics determines your success in the market. That’s why a vacuum forming process is ideal. Why? Because the manufacturing leaves your products seamless with excellent finishes. Is this the manufacturing option you’ve been looking for? Turn sheets of plastic, Perspex or acrylic into anything you imagine.

Moulded to perfection.

All you need is a mould of your desired product and our vacuum forming machine.


Practical Solution

Does your product simply require a single layer of plastic? This is the manufacturing option that makes sense.

Vacuum formed products can be light, are quick to produce and you can pick a plastic thickness that suits your product. You can even pick embossing and textures to give it some character. This is how you take your plastic products to the next level. Do you need one item or many? We can handle any size project. And if you want a colour to complement your products, it’s easy to find the perfect hue when you work with plastic. Not sure what you need yet?
