Being a global sourcing player is not a matter of choice – it is
required in today’s competitive industrial market place. Key decision
makers with vision for their company’s growth and profitability,
increasingly share this basic philosophy.

To develop and sustain outsourcing direction, management need
information and sound judgement to control purchasing and marketing
strategies – especially in global markets where entry paths are complex
and the business culture is unfamiliar.

The rewards are substantial – however both risk and commitment can
provide a major burden on day-to-day business operations.

GlobalTool specialises in the offshore design and manufacture of high
quality, low cost tooling. Solid experience spans the manufacture of
long life moulds, dies, patterns, press and forming tools capable of
producing high quality piece parts in plastics, polymer, rubber,
aluminium and hard metals in the form of moulded components, castings,
forgings and pressings with the added option of assembly work.

At the hub of our success is the consistent delivery of shorter
manufacturing lead times and significant tool cost savings compared to
local suppliers – 25% to 40% cost down being typical.

GlobalPart specialises in the offshore manufacture and logistics
management of high quality / low cost components from proven, world
emerging markets, shipping millions of parts per year to substantial
clients in the USA and Europe.

GlobalPart provides a complete, outsourcing component production
process, from trial sourcing enquiry to delivery at the client’s
production lines.

A working partnership exists with clients manufacturing organisations
who are committed to the ethos of maintaining cost advantages over
traditional ‘Western suppliers’ to ensure their product
competitiveness, expansion, improved performance or pure survival.

GlobalPart administers manufacturing schedules and production
programmes for client components and tooling supply on long term
arrangements, ensuring the most cost effective sources are utilised.

Exacting international quality standards are applied in the merging
of leading edge technology and the most advanced production line
techniques utilising low labour costs and overhead burden, with
resultant exceptional competitive manufacturing costs. Our considerable
expertise in managing this process enables the benefits of time
compression and just-in-time delivery to be passed on to our clients –
ensuring faster, more flexible production, lower inventory levels,
lower administration costs and supporting headcount.

GlobalPart employs local highly skilled engineers and logistics
specialists in offshore sourcing offices in Central and Eastern Europe,
Russia, Portugal, India, China and the Orient. Our management and staff
understand market culture and how to achieve optimum efficiency from
local conditions, with added responsibility for the provision of
ongoing Quality Assurance and Quality Control inspection. Each team is
dedicated to the achievement of total excellence in all added value
services provided to each client specification.

Research – we assist our clients by carrying out research on their
behalf to establish the options available in fulfilling the project.

Reporting – we report back with realistic recommendations capable of
generating interest and trial enquiries. ‘Off-the-shelf’ components
(stocked items) are design and quality approved by our clients prior
to any business transaction. Regular reports are maintained throughout
the research process via fax, e-mail, personal client visits and

Trial Enquiry – experience and perfected sourcing skills, locate the
optimum manufacturers capable of delivering the clients trial enquiry.
A detailed quotation is prepared – usually within 14 days – addressing
client key needs in terms of quality, delivery, price, logistics,
administration controls and supply timing.

Trial Order – upon satisfactory conclusion of the trial enquiry,
the client is invited to place a trial order on GlobalPart as vendor.
GlobalPart places the trial order on the subcontracted manufacturing
plant. At this time clients are encouraged to accompany GlobalPart
representatives to visit the manufacturing facility, together with
other appropriate plants in the same country for first hand knowledge
of available skills and reassurance. Manufacturing schedules are then
placed on the selected manufacturers, monitored by local GlobalPart

Quality Control – a vital part of our role is to ensure the components
we source are manufactured to the highest, internationally recognised,
quality control standards – in most cases our plants have achieved ISO
9000 accreditation and QS 9000 for automotive applications. We employ
continuous quality evaluation procedures to ensure our customer’s
components are afforded the same attention to detail they would receive
if produced in their own plants.

Own Branding – clients logos and part numbers can be applied to
components during the manufacturing process or prior to shipment in
order to support a client own brand strategy for OEM and aftermarket

Packaging, Packing and Delivery attention to detail enhances a
GlobalPart reputation for client satisfaction. Exact packing
requirements are met; ensuring components arrive in factory
condition, on time, in the quantity ordered, to specification.
Global Group operates warehouses in the UK, USA, Taiwan and Czech
Republic to ensure inventory safety stocks of offshore sourced
components are held for each client requiring this service option,
enabling just-in-time delivery to any production point and eliminating
‘stock-outs’. Packaging options are available in any style and language
at client local distribution points from ex-plant bulk shipments.
GlobalPart refers to this service as an ‘anywhere to anywhere’
logistics capability.

Administartion – every aspect of production, quality control,
logistics, foreign exchange and supporting administration is monitored
as part of our overall responsibility. GlobalPart is the Principal and
direct vendor in the transaction – not the Agent. This is an important
distinction; GlobalPart is therefore the supplier to our clients.
Ownership is passed after delivery and 100% payment is received.

Global Technology specialises in the transfer of state-of-the-art
Western manufacturing methods, know-how and quality systems to Central
and Eastern Europe.

Based in the Czech Republic, Global Technology is at the forefront of
providing new manufacturing technology and know-how to the formidable
untapped resources of the former Eastern Bloc countries, enabling this
capability to ultimately supply modern, quality products to Western
clients. A vast resource of high quality, low cost, experienced labour
is available in Central and Eastern European manufacturing industries.
However R&D investment is not generally sufficient to meet the demands
of Western market forces and competitive quality expectations.

Hillside Plastics are suppliers of high quality plastic injection
moulded components and subassemblies for a variety of industries
including Automotive, Industrial and Consumer goods.

We pride ourselves on the quality of our service and our reputation
as technically adept moulders.

We aim to continually develop our business in line with our
customer’s requirements. Enabling us to offer professional project
management, which will guide all new tooling design, development
and ultimately their full commissioning ready for production.

Our production facilities continuously strive for improving
quality standards whilst achieving product cost reductions so
aiding our clients in their long-term strategic aims.

Three associates Mr. Kevin Brooks, Mr. Alex Bell and Mr. Peter
Pounder founded Hillside Plastics Limited on February 4th 1971.

They named the company Hillside because the first premises they
viewed were situated on a hillside.

The business was originally located to Edwardson Road on the
Meadowfield Industrial Estate in Brandon in 1971, but due to
rapid success they outgrew their premises within a six year period.
The business therefore moved to the present site occupied today, which
was specifically built in 1977.

The company has grown since 1977 with steady investment from Mr.
Anthony David Bell and Mr. Neil Brooks who have overseen numerous
developments from new moulding machines of various sizes to the
purpose built warehouse located at the rear of the premises.

Today the current directors Mr. Neil Brooks and Mr. Michael Carrick
are proud to be leading this established plastic injection moulder.

Our experienced staff consisting of time served toolmakers, quality
engineers, production engineers and project managers are ready to
provide a professional service advising on the design of new injection
moulded components and will project manage the design and manufacture
of any new tooling required.

This team will advise on injection moulded component design issues
from a manufacturer and toolmaker's perspective. The service will help
increase the level of quality engineered into a component and optimise
the tool ensuring components are manufactured consistently and

After the component is designed our skilled team can undertake all
tooling contracts from the tools initial design, through its
manufacture at one of our nominated tool makers and finally the tools
full commissioning with component samples submitted ready for approval.

At present we manufacture over 500 different components with run
lengths between 500 and 250,000 parts per batch. All production runs
are controlled by a production package containing process critical
manufacturing settings and instructions on critical to quality (CTQ)

The shot size available over our machine range is between 3 to 2200
grams. We currently have 33 injection moulding machines ranging from
15-ton to 575-ton clamping pressure. To see a full list of our moulding
machines scroll to the bottom of the page.

On components where colour conformity is critical our mould shop have
access to Movacolour dosing units. These units dispense masterbatch
directly into the injection screw at a rate calculated relative to the
shot weight, barrel / screw size and the desired component colour.
These units are very accurate, so are ideal for controlling the
dispersion of any colouring pigment aesthetically sensitive plastic
moulded components.

The production facilities are open twenty-four hours a day, working
on a three eight-hour shift pattern.

On site is a designated assembly area where mechanical and electrical
sub-assemblies can be produced adding value to our moulded components
to meet customer specifications and business requirements. Many blue
chip companies use this service to support their production needs when
remedial work is required on their internationally sourced components
and supplied just in time for production.

In operation on site we have a Machine Service plan, which schedules
all machinery for routine preventative maintenance.

To aid the smooth running of the mould shop a fully equipped tool
room is located onsite. The tool room is staffed by time served
toolmakers that can undertake tooling modifications, repairs and
maintenance enabling us to keep inline with our customer’s changing
product and delivery requirements.

Every tool under-goes routine maintenance after all production runs
to keep the tools in their prime condition.

The tool room also serves our quality department by helping to design
and construct gauges, jigs and fixtures that are used on the shop floor
or on our sophisticated Coordinate Measuring Machine.

The manufacturing facilities are guided by using our EDI (Electronic
Data Interchange) link to receive schedules and update our production
management software. The MRP software is a tool that enables us to
determine our requirements and indicate dates to purchase materials
and begin to manufacture in order to meet our customers delivery schedule.

The company operates a quality management based system which is BSI
registered to the requirements of BS EN ISO 9002:1994.

We have a quality policy documented and is available upon request.

Introduced in May 2001 was our 3 axis Coordinate Measuring Machine
(CMM) as shown in the photo above. The Apex Euro 574 is a significant
investment that further recognises our determination to meet the
changing requirements of our customers. This CMM will enable us to
measure geometrically complex forms, consistently and quickly. With
the ability for automated programming it’s capable of reducing the
inaccuracy often seen in repetitive measurements with manual equipment.

The very sensitive probes of varying shapes and forms will penetrate
into the deepest and most complex of cavities or undercuts, ensuring
that our new products can be monitored and Initial Sample Inspection
Reports (I.S.I.R.) produced and submitted quickly on complex

To aid our customer’s product requirements full capability studies
can be carried out to ensure our processes are well controlled and
capable of producing components consistently to the customer’s

Our quality auditors are fully trained in using SPC analysis which
if required on critical dimensions will be analysed and graphed to
highlight any anomalies and concerns with a production run, so ensuring
all product produced is of an exceptional quality.

The output from I.S.I.R’s, Capability studies and SPC can be monitored
and analysed onsite using Minitab’s Statistical Analysis software,
which ensures Hillside Plastic Ltd is able to offer a service which
meets and exceeds international quality standards.

If the component colour is critical to quality a sample of components
can be checked for a specific colour, intensity and consistency by
using our Minolta 502I spectrophotometer during the production run.
