Despite the uncertainty of Brexit, award-winning Omega Plastics is advising that relocating can reduce costs on logistics, material supply and packaging, adding an element of reassurance to customers that a product is being made in the UK.

And bosses say it isn’t reliant on which way Brexit negotiations fall.

The business, which employs more than 150 staff across three regional sites, including two factory units in Hartlepool and Washington, already boasts Aston Martin, Jaguar Landrover, Nissan and Honda on its client list, and is eager to help others with reshoring their operations.

Julian Jamieson, operations director for Omega Plastics, said: “The world of manufacturing is all about quality, costs and time. The trick is to find a healthy balance between all three.

“What we offer at Omega Plastics is a good quality product that can be shipped anywhere in the world, but in these current times of uncertainty when UK companies are being more cautious, then why not look closer to home when placing your next order?

“We have always prided ourselves at Omega Plastics in coming up with the best solutions and delivering the goods.”

Omega’s 1,300-tonne production machine excels in turning around high volume products for the automotive, construction, white goods and aerospace industries. See
