Enterprise Minister Arlene Foster today commended Bangor based Denroy Plastics on its continued success during the company’s 40th year in business.
The plastic moulding manufacturer is regarded as a world leader in its field. The company is actively targeting new opportunities in the aerospace sector and recently received a bronze award following its participation on the ADS Supply Chain programme (SC21).
During the Farnborough Air Show in July, the company revealed that it had secured European funding to research a new injection moulding/composites manufacturing process for use in the global aerospace sector. Successful implementation of this process will put Denroy Plastics at the forefront of ground-breaking technology opportunities for the aerospace industry.
Speaking following a visit to the company’s premises, Arlene Foster said: “Denroy Plastics has established itself as an enterprising and progressive firm and has built up unrivalled knowledge in plastic moulding in its 40 year history.
“The company’s structured approach to improvement through the SC21 programme is impressive and I would encourage Denroy to continue to work with Invest Northern Ireland in further developing its potential in the growing aerospace sector. Its sustained commitment to market-led innovation will benefit Denroy as it seeks to compete for new and innovative business opportunities on a global stage.”
John Rainey, Chairman of Denroy Plastics said: “Denroy has been building a robust and forward-looking business over the last 40 years and we have celebrated our anniversary in style. We look forward to building on our achievements this year and taking advantage of new supply chain opportunities in the global aerospace market.”
