open-CommasIn 2008 I made the decision to stop importing finished product and manufacture everything we offered on site. People questioned what I was doing as imported product was a reasonable chunk of our business at the time and simply reselling has advantages, so to an extent it was a gamble. At the end of the day though there were 2 aspects of the business that I most enjoyed, making things and building a great team of people and through focusing on developing and manufacturing our own British made products we have grown a unique, sustainable business that is a pleasure to run.close-Commas

Having returned to the family business in 2013 I quickly realised the promotional industry was evolving. As a result of technological advances and the buying practices of millennials, international sourcing had become common place, neglecting many UK manufacturers. As a result I decided to fight back and fly the British flag. Over the last few years I am honoured to have played an active role in creating and chairing the Briman Group and believe The TMA has a unique opportunity to continue promoting British Made products. close-Commas

Having spent numerous years in production before moving into a sales role, I found the most frustrating part of our industry was working extremely hard to secure an order, only for it to be passed over to a production facility that seemed to lose all focus on the critical delivery dates our industry thrives on. It seemed logical that the only way to control this was to make the product myself, and to this day, that is the firm philosophy Great Central Plastics works to.
We manufacture all our products in house from design, tooling, moulding, decoration, and sub assembly, so if we undertake a delivery promise we move heaven and earth to honour it.close-Commas
