Omega Plastics Group (OPG) is looking forward to a bright 2018 following a stellar year that has seen awards success and sales growth.

The company, which operates factories in Blyth, Washington and Hartlepool, scooped the prestigious North East Company of the Year title at the North East Business Awards grand final in April.

Its success on a regional scale secured a nomination in the High Growth Business of the Year category at the highly sought-after Chamber Business Awards, organised by the British Chambers of Commerce.

OPG has also has seen its order books overflowing in 2017. It provides high-quality plastic moulding services and expertise and works across the automotive, medical and FMCG sectors.

Group managing director, Dave Crone, said: “This has been an outstanding year for OPG and winning the North East Company of the Year title was a huge deal for us.

“The opportunities it has afforded us since have really helped us to take our business to the next level.

“I fully anticipate that the exposure the business has received as a result of being shortlisted at the Chamber Business Awards will be of real benefit going into the new year.

“OPG now has a bigger national profile, which will certainly help us to attract new business from larger organisations and companies operating across other regions of the UK.”

The business also launched its own education programme in 2017.
