Engineering plastics manufacturer McNeall Plastics has onshored key capabilities and is now the only company in Australia with capacity to pour large and complex Nylon products up to a size of 3000mm x 3000mm.
McNeall’s Sydney and Brisbane plants produce Nylons, Acetals, Polyethylene UHMW, Polypropylene, and Polycarbonate.
Managing director Josh Budd said: “The COVID-19 pandemic, and the resultant disruption to supply chains motivated us to reflect on how we can best serve our customers.
“We wanted them to be confident that they could operate in a ‘business as usual’ mode, regardless of the ever-changing market around them.”
The company has upgraded production facilities and technologies, including a just-installed CNC machine (pictured).
“(This) has enabled us to further enhance our volume capabilities and deliver consistently high precision machined and milled components at competitive prices, with reliable supply and quick turnaround times.”
The Australian owned company produces plate, tube, bar or custom cast parts.
Budd said: “We’re here from start to finish, from concept to delivery.
“We’re here for the long-term relationship, not just a quick sale. With us, customers can be confident in the knowledge that we’ll be here when they need us.”
