Welcome to the second edition of PlastikCity on tour! Our next stop was at Wellingborough based Renmar Plastics Machinery.
Renmar was founded in 2007 by Kevin Horne, primarily to serve as the UK agent for the Amut Group. In the following years, the company quickly added product lines from manufacturers such as the ACS Group, Virginio Nastri and Pulsotronic.
To enable Kevin to spend more time visiting customers, his son Dan joined the company in 2010, shortly followed by his daughter Kristy. Increased business meant that the company quickly outgrew its small office in Sywell and relocated to its current facility in Wellingborough. This is where we met with Dan.
Renmar now offers a wide range of ancillary products, including but not limited to granulators, shredders, mould heaters, belt conveyors & systems, robots, dryers, loaders, dosers, and metal detection equipment.
We asked Dan which particular product lines were the company’s primary focus at present and over the coming 12-months.
“Our main focus at present is on our size reduction range and product automation equipment. Our Engin Plast granulators and ISVE industrial shredders proved very popular in 2018 and have continued with the same momentum at the start of 2019.”
“In January 2019 we announced the addition of Topstar robots to our range of equipment. Topstar is a fast growing, successful manufacturer based in China. We will be offering their 3, 4, 5 and 6 axis robots as well as the range of sprue pickers. We are working in collaboration with AJ Robotics, as this enables us to provide a fully supported installation and integration service.”
The company will be promoting their equipment at the Recycling & Waste Management Expo at the NEC in September, as well as exhibiting on the PlastikCity Pavilion at PDM in June.
Finally, we asked Dan if the company had an official or unofficial philosophy or mission statement?
“One strap-line we use is that we are “responsive, reliable and realistic”. We are also big enough to deliver, but small enough to care.”
Look out for the next edition of ‘PlastikCity on Tour’ to learn more about our excellent UK based Partner Companies.
There are now well over 200 active Partners represented on the PlastikCity site, many of which offer highly specialised products or services to our sector.
During our everyday course of business, we’ll be making a point of visiting as many of these partners as we can and using the time to better understand what they offer the market. We’ll then showcase them through this ongoing series of articles.
Maybe you can benefit from their services!
