54 Years and Counting: The Rise of Plastic Supplies Dudley

Plastic Supplies Dudley is a family-run injection moulding company which has been operating for over fifty years in the West Midlands. It all began in 1969 with one product and has since grown to serve industries and businesses all over the UK with an extensive range of services.

Plastic Supplies Dudley was established in September 1969 by Brian Loverock, the father and grandfather of the company’s current management, Tim Loverock and Joe Loverock. Brian began producing just one product when he first founded the company, a plastic body filler spreader.

A Gap in the Market

Originally designed as an alternative to lead body solder, the plastic body filler is a polyester-based resin with a putty-like substance. It is used to smooth out holes, scuffs and scratches on plastic parts – particularly within the automotive industry. Brian noticed that as body filler became more popular for car repairs, people were using various different scrap materials to apply the filler – such as old pieces of lino and plastic.

Spotting a gap in the market for a specific applicator for this substance, Plastic Supplies Dudley became a leading supplier of body filler spreaders – a product that they still produce to this day. The first big order for these plastic spreaders came from a company called U-POL. Moreover, Plastic Supplies Dudley is proud to still work with the company to this day and who sends their products worldwide.
