The order for the 1,000th tool follows the companies restructure in November 2012 when they opened an injection moulding facility. Previously manufacturing casting and wax tooling the company saw a huge increase in demand for aluminium plastic injection mould tooling and made the decision to restructure the company to meet their customer requirements. Since 2012 RP Technologies have continued to grow and invest profits back into plant and employees ensuring their services match their customers’ expectations.
To celebrate the landmark order RP Technologies have donated £1,000 to Deb Group’s chosen cancer charity, Macmillan Cancer Support. Olympia Shipley, Fundraising Manager for Macmillan says “There are 2.5 million people living with cancer in the UK, one in two people are likely to get cancer in their lifetimes. Macmillan Cancer Support provides practical, emotional and personal support to people affected by cancer every year. The charity is there to support people during treatment, help with work and money worries, and listen when people need to talk about their feelings. Macmillan receives no government funding and relies on generous donations like this from RP Technologies to continue the valued support.”
Darren Withers, Director at RP Technologies said “We are honoured to donate £1,000 to Macmillan, the support they provide helps people to live their lives again. We also want to thank Deb for their repeat custom. It’s customers like Deb that allow us to sustain our growth at RP Technologies meaning we can continue to offer high quality services. Here’s to the next thousand tools.”
