UK bespoke manufacturing thriving at Alplas

Creativity, design and expert technicians within Alplas enable us to develop and prototype bespoke mouldings to our customers’ exact requirements.

Spirit Displays is one such customer who trusted us to do just that. They approached our Sales and Manufacturing team here at Alplas to help improve their Spirit-TEX™ installation tool which was both costly to produce and cumbersome in design. Our brief was to produce a lightweight contemporary style tool and in particular it was vital to replicate the blade edge to ensure it was fit for purpose on their tension system.

Dean Brown, Business Development Manager at Alplas said :

‘Spirit Displays gave us a brief, to manufacture a cost effective version of their existing product. Pooling on the resources of our creative/design & technical employees, we created the first initial 3D rendition.  With the input from Alistair at Spirit we were soon able to produce a working prototype & with further feedback from the customer adjustments were made to ensure it had a comfortable fit for the end user.  We were subsequently given the green light to make the moulding tool & within 2 weeks the first shots were manufactured. One key benefit we were able to offer was the choice of colour & all in time for its appearance at the 2013 FESPA show.’
