Capabilities

Capabilities from laser cutting to folding

Plastic fabrication at Cambrian Plastics is enabled by a state of the art production facility, including in house equipment that provides us with a virtually unlimited process ability.

It all begins with Design! Our in house design team works at all levels having experience in fully project managed design, through to “stubby pencil” sketches. We often work with design students and artists on their projects and are happy to work with you in developing your product. Have a look at our custom products to see some of the interesting projects we have been involved in over the past few years. Take a photo, send a sketch, provide drawings, or just come and have a chat!
