Excelsior Roto Moulding Ltd., a leader in the roto-moulding industry since 1976, has been shortlisted for a national industry award. The specialist rotational moulder is a finalist in the 2014 Plastics Industry Awards (PIAs) in the category of Industrial Product Design of the Year. Excelsior’s entry was based on recent work for Lion Steel Equipment Ltd., which has been manufacturing storage equipment since 1960 and is a trade only global supplier. Lion Steel wanted an innovative new plastic locker solution that was practical, robust, rot resistant, hygienic, completely weather proof and vandal resistant. Excelsior’s managing director, Giles Fielding, said of being shortlisted for this prestigious industry award: “We are honoured to have been shortlisted for our work with Lion Steel. The Lion Steel project encompasses our passion here at Excelsior, working alongside a client from design, tooling and testing, through to finished product.
“It is a big achievement to be shortlisted and we’re proud to have been recognised within the industry.”
Excelsior, as well as boasting a significant portfolio of products, specialises in contract moulding. With in-house CAD design and sheet steel tooling facility it offers low lead times and precision, lack of restriction and cost effective output for clients. The winners of the PIAs will be announced at a gala dinner at London’s Hilton on Park Lane on 24th October, and will be hosted by TV comedian, Al Murray Pub Landlord.
