Sprint Tool and Die, after being voted Toolmaker of the Year

at the Plastic Industry Awards, is continuing to ride the

wave of recovery within the manufacturing sector.

The Telford-based toolmakers are moving to larger premises and

continuing to invest in state-of-the-art machinery, initially expanding wire

EDM facilities, so as to increase productivity and expansion into high-spec machined parts.

Increased workforce, in-house designers and tool trial facilities

reflect the buoyant nature of manufacturing within the GTMA

supplier which has a team of highly skilled apprentice-trained

toolmakers. The company specialises in high precision production tooling, alongside modifications and repairs.

All work is carried out within its dedicated toolmaking facility.

Toolmaker of the Year was awarded to Sprint Tool and Die after

its design drastically reduced cycle times and material wastage,

attracting further tooling from Japan and USA, for a first tier

OEM, thus reinforcing its reputation as first-class toolmakers.
