One of the world’s fastest growing plastics companies has continued to strengthen its global position as a market leader with a multi-million dollar investment in manufacturing facilities in China and Ireland.

OnePlastics Group has expanded its production capabilities with a $9 million investment at its Protech Plastics business in Shanghai and Ireland.

This strategic move will see the facilities at Protech Plastics China double in size to 50,000sf to cater for rising customer demand. The facility currently supplies engineering products to the high tech computer industry.

The latest investment is another sign of the group’s long-term strategy to position its portfolio of six businesses into global industry leaders in their respective sectors.

Over the last 12 months, OnePlastics Group has invested millions on new machinery as it looks to build on its position as one of the fastest-growing businesses in the sector.

“We are building the Protech Plastics China business for future growth and this investment in Shanghai is a sign of our commitment to the plastics industry.”

The Protech Plastics China investment will allow the factory to react to market demand with the latest innovative products.  The Shanghai factory also provides high volume assembly and complete supply chain management to its multinational clients.

As part of this latest investment, the sister firm in the Protech stable in Ireland called Protech Performance Plastics will also develop a state of the art food grade manufacturing facility with new machinery and automation tools.

OnePlastics Group is owned by One51plc, based in Ireland, which created the new brand which saw six manufacturing businesses and one design office in the US come together under one umbrella with a vision to be the leading provider of plastics products to a variety of sectors.
