Leading independent PVC compounder Dugdale Ltd has followed up a successful and profitable Interplas 2017 exhibition by signing off a deal to join the PlastikCity trading network.
Dugdale membership is immediate and encompasses the full range of available services for materials suppliers to the plastics processing industries.
Dugdale Business Development Manager Andy Tombs says that ‘our team enjoyed representing Dugdale at Interplas 2017 and we are now delighted to be working with PlastikCity and its network.’
Tombs says ‘for us, this agreement adds to Dugdale’s excellence in customer service: We hope that the move will give us added connectivity in the marketplace and will also boost the Dugdale profile as the ‘go to’ supplier of bespoke PVC compounds for plastics processors of all kinds.’
Tombs says that ‘2018 will see Dugdale develop even further lines of innovative and new PVC compounds and formulations. Our newly created pilot plant and laboratories at Sowerby Bridge will increasingly come to the fore, and will play a key role in broadening our market reach. Our communications work will need to reflect the full variety of a widening portfolio. PlastikCity will play a key part in helping us get our messages to the marketplace.’
PlastikCity founder and managing director Carl Futcher says that ‘We’re delighted that one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of PVC compounds is joining PlastikCity. Dugdale are exactly the type of partner we look to represent, having a proven record for manufacturing high quality compounds, backed up by an excellent UK based support. We’re looking forward to promoting their materials to our ever growing user base.’
Dugdale used Interplas 2017 to further promote their range of PVC Compounds for the plastics industries and to also promote the features of the company’s new applications laboratories. The latter facilities are expected to be fully operational in Spring 2018.
