ABOUT US

The company

Adreco was founded in 1977 in Bletchley, Milton Keynes and has been manufacturing for over 40 years.

Winners of the 2017 Plastics Award, Adreco Plastics is a privately owned and dynamic business with main facilities in Milton Keynes, the UK’s most prosperous city, and extended facilities in Shenzhen, China.

Company background

The company is now privately owned by Sam Hill who bought the business in 2012 and had previously been Managing Director of three other Plastics Businesses. The arrival of Sam and other new team members has bought fresh ideas and new ways of working. This coupled with the wealth of experience from an established and highly skilled staff puts Adreco in a great position.

We are accredited to ISO9001:2008 , a member of The British Plastics Federation (BPF) and a member of SEDEX (The Supplier Ethical Data Exchange)
We currently employ 25 permanent staff from the local area, within our tool room, moulding facility and offices.

Sam Hill, Managing Director

We operate within these core values

  • Provide outstanding customer service.
  • Deliver excellent quality and reliability on time.
  • Offer good value for money.

Quoting

We can often supply quotes on the same working day and at least (for complex projects) within a few business days.
We’re comfortable working from broad information or from detailed CAD files and product specification.

Customer Service

Following successful trials, once we begin manufacturing your tool or commence moulding your components, we welcome you to come and see us in action. Apart from anything, if you’re not familiar with the processes involved, it’s really quite interesting!
Throughout production, procedures beyond those required for ISO9001 are in place to ensure consistent quality.

How We Work

Initial Enquiry

Once you have made initial contact with us we think it’s a good idea for you to try and come and visit us on site. Seeing the factory, machinery and meeting the team here is the best way of quickly helping you decide whether we might be a match made in heaven. Alternatively, Sam Hill is always happy to visit you at any stage, before or during a project.

Should your project not progress for any reason or you simply need advice, we are always happy to offer this free of charge.

At all times we are honest and will keep you fully informed.

 

Project Planning

First of all, we listen.
We digest and make recommendations about different polymers, tooling and production options to drive out unnecessary cost without compromising on quality.
We then allocate the right resource at the right time to ensure we deliver our promises efficiently.

We will also discuss requirements for post production such as

  • Assembly
  • Insert Staking
  • Ultra sonic welding
  • Machining
  • Bespoke packaging
  • Stock holding
  • Post product operations

    Post production operations are also available from assembly to final packaging. Our flexibility is important to customers and we recognise this by offering a personal and bespoke range of services.
