History of Tool and Plastic

Tool and Plastic Industries was founded in 1968 and very quickly established itself as a leading supplier of precision injection moulded plastic components to a variety of industry sectors in Ireland and UK markets.

Since 2001 the company has experienced dramatic change. The core competency of the company is now, that of a solutions provider to Global OEM’s in the medical device, healthcare and consumer packaging industry sectors.
In order to accommodate the implementation of this strategy the company initiated a number of significant initatives mainly:

  • Start up of a Czech Republic based subsidiary company, Innovaplast in 2005.
  • Moved to new purpose built manufacturing facility in 2007 for Tool and Plastic and 2008 for Innovaplast.
  • Implementation of ISO13485 at both facilities in 2008 and 2011 respectively
  • Establishment of our project development group in 2010.

These changes have been supported by the recruitment of key personnel with experience in the Medical Device Industry.
