TH Plastics Announced as Finalist for the Plastics Industry Awards for Another Year Running!


We are pleased to announce that we have been selected as a finalist for Supplier Partnership in Ancillary Machinery for the Plastics Industry Awards again this year!


Our entry submission this year focused on our outstanding customer relationship with connectivity solutions provider Harwin, providing them with a material handling and drying system to improve automation and energy efficiency at their site in Portsmouth.


Harwin is a world-leading specialist in supplying high-performance connectivity solutions to customers worldwide for over 70 years. They solve connectivity challenges by offering connectors to their wide range of markets, including space, aviation, defence, robotics, oil and gas, medical and motorsports.


Their mission is to provide customers with a competitive advantage of their advanced technologies, priding themselves on meeting the most demanding specifications for customers with their high-quality products, designed for ultra-high-performance applications in the harshest operating environments and the tightest of spaces.


In 2022, we partnered with Harwin to improve the efficiency of their drying solutions. From the initial meeting with TH Plastics in 2022, when Harwin were first quoted the project, they stated how satisfied they were with the customer service of our team and how this had a positive impact on the project. They were elated at how helpful our team were throughout the project and how prompt they were at answering any questions and queries.


Harwin had previously been using a 3-phase fixed air displacement dryer to dry materials on each machine, which was taking an extended amount of time and not economising electricity usage, which could have been used more productively in other areas of the business.


Switching to a single-phased system supplied by TH Plastics meant Harwin could have less material to dry with fewer loads and therefore, use much less power and output, resulting in lower costs.


We look forward to the night of the awards and potentially retaining our 2022 crown! Best of luck to all who have made it to the finals! See you on the 17th of November!




Customer Feedback
"TH Plastics’ developed a bespoke solution for Kautex Unipart, primarily comprising Moretto equipment: blenders, dryers, hopper loaders, suction unit with sound enclosure, dust filters, material feed pipes and metal separators".

Engineering Manager

Kautex Unipart

"They helped us with everything; the design of the solution, what we might need, sourcing the kit, installation, integration and on-going support 24/7. 365 days a year. They guided us through the whole process which was great".



"As a result of our initial dealings with TH Plastics, we had high expectations of the company, but I have to say that even these were surpassed. The quality of the workmanship was outstanding and the speed and safety with which the work was undertaken made the installation a joy to witness. And, when the installation was complete and the system was switched on, it worked perfectly immediately".

Advanced Manufacturing Manager

Kautex Unipart

"TH Plastics were excellent at every stage, from initial site visits and concepts to equipment supply and testing as well as the complete installation on site. I received a personal service from the outset. TH Plastics did a very good job; they did what they said they would and they did it extremely well".

Engineering Manager

BPI Rhymney

"I was particularly impressed at how proactive the team at TH Plastics were when we asked them to provide a reference site. They responded immediately and arranged for us to visit Maxell Moulding Services in Telford, where TH Plastics had delivered a factory move installation. The Manager at Maxell was extremely positive about TH Plastics and we were impressed with the standard of workmanship on site".

Productions Director

Fern Plastic Products

"The new materials handling and drying system TH Plastics designed has exceeded my expectations. It's significantly more efficient than we had at the site, so far yielding a 40% reduction in energy consumption and I expect that figure to increase in future."

Head of Production

Maxell Moulding Services

"TH Plastics has designed and developed a unique solution for our specific needs that has reduced labour costs, reduced energy costs, increased efficiency and uptime, and at the same time improved product quality. They have a unique way of working in the industry, providing a unique facility for prototyping and developing new concepts and solutions that no one else offers. Their team is the only company that I know that offers such a uniformed process from beginning to end. All the team are technical engineers with a commitment to solving customer issues and getting the best results".
