TH Plastics Expands – Again!

31 March 2023

With a dedicated technical team, TH Plastics Ltd has rapidly become a market leader in ancillary products and recycling solutions in the UK. Our growth has necessitated the strengthening of our sales presence across the UK to better support our exclusive distribution partners and growing customer base. Ben Morris and Colum Makin have been appointed to our sales team as the latest recruits. 

In Ben’s previous employment, he was a senior production manager for a British luxury luggage manufacturer. Prior to this, he established himself as a well-known professional in the plastics industry as a technical supervisor at an injection moulding facility, where he planned production and managed the mould shop. 14 years in this sector has helped Ben to acquire a wealth of knowledge that will be invaluable in thein the ancillary sector. Ben has developed an impressive level of technical knowledge for a wide range of applications during his time in the industry. Having a thorough understanding of the customer’s requirements and the ability to provide practical solutions will certainly be valuable to our growing customer base. Ben is ready to get stuck into the role and is excited about the opportunity to re-engage with the industry. “Given my experience in injection moulding, this is an excellent opportunity for me to build my network, not only within injection moulding, but also within other sectors of plastics manufacturing”. Ben stated “I am looking forward to reconnecting with familiar faces and to meeting new people, and I intend to utilise my knowledge and skillset to provide efficient systems and to dominate the Southeast region”. Ben will be taking over the Southeast of England territory.


Colum has already proved to be an invaluable addition to the team and will assume the role of Area Sales Manager for the Southwest of England, inclusive of Wales. While Colum will be joining the Plastics Industry for the first time, he has worked closely with many moulding facilities to manufacture some of the world’s most popular hair care brushes. It is clear that he is extremely eager and committed to getting a hold of the role and expanding his knowledge as soon as possible. With his previous experience as a Managing Director of a company that transformed commercial spaces, we are confident that he will be able to apply this knowledge to the transformation of plastics production facilities. When asked what are his future plans at TH Plastics Colum said “I am really excited to get out there are start engaging with the current customer base as well as build to this. I look forward to learning and developing my knowledge to become a key player within the Ancillary providers in the UK.”

Jonathan Pankethman, UK Sales and Marketing manager at TH Plastics, commented: “I am delighted that Ben and Colum have joined TH Plastics; their contributions to our growth will be critical to our continued expansion. The guys have immersed themselves in TH Plastics since starting and I look forward to their continued development as they build up their knowledge and expand our South region customer base.”

"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."

"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

"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

"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."
