Heritage Who Innovation Today

facilities & capability

Alplas is conveniently located in Basildon, Essex, just off the M25. Our 63,000 sq ft building affords huge warehousing for stock and contract orders, often with many dozens of pallets assigned to one order and awaiting despatch. We have a very large manufacturing press room supporting seven presses from 35 to 210 tonne clamping force, with room for more when we want, and a fully equipped engineering tool room with the latest CNC milling.

This is unusual in UK injection moulding and allows complete in-house tooling with immediate attention to tooling problems, ensuring the smooth running of production.

Over the years Alplas has developed into a comprehensive design, engineering and manufacturing company whereby for us 'Made in Britain' means origination, quality, control and reliability. Alplas products are widely distributed throughout the UK and around the world.

international distribution

Complementing our own manufacturing, Alplas has longstanding connections with the world's best POS accessory companies, bringing the best products to the UK. This is something that has taken many years to achieve as some companies discover to their cost when sourcing, Far East products. We've done the due diligence, to overcome the problems often associated with Chinese producers, and now have a network of tried and tested suppliers that know what we expect so that we don't let our customers down.


Alplas is committed to environmental responsibility and minimising environmental impact. We have a published Environmental Policy which heads up our whole approach to the environment and the help we can give you to help your customers and the public care for the environment. Fully accredited to UKAS ISO 14001 the international environmental standard which gives a systematic way to discover, control and reduce the impact on the environment.

Alplas recycles almost 100% of plastic waste during manufacture with only a small amount of pre-production waste collected for re-processing.
