What to Look for in a Plastic Manufacturer?

Plastic has transformed the packaging industry over the last 60 to 70 years. It has allowed businesses to significantly reduce costs and increase efficiency in wrapping or containing everything, from food goods to biohazardous materials. Today, plastic packaging is in huge demand, utilised by many industries from aerospace and medical, to construction and agriculture. If you require plastic for poly film products for your business operations, you likely understand the importance of securing a high-quality product that can be custom-made and produced in a timely manner. With a wide range of plastic manufacturers on the market using a variety of different technologies, it can be difficult to choose a manufacturer that can offer the appropriate solution for you. Here are some things to consider. Industry knowledge is invaluable. It is essential that you use a plastic packaging manufacturer that completely understands your businesses packaging or poly film requirements. Your supplier must understand your product, supply limitations, key demographic and provision requirements to work with you to provide the best quality film solution that ensures your packaging supports your business.


Ensuring your plastic and poly film products are durable and effective is essential. When your plastic packaging needs to hold food products or medical waste, there is just no way you can risk using an inferior plastic product that isn’t properly sealed or is prone to getting damaged easily. To determine the quality of a plastic manufacturing company’s products, you need to look at everything, from their production methods and quality assurance processes to their reputation, clientele and customer service.


A quality plastics manufacturer knows how to provide for the varying needs of their customers. Each business has unique requirements when it comes to their plastic packaging, meaning the manufacturer has to be capable of offering custom work in different sized runs with customised branding solutions and high quality control. At Dolphin Plastics & Packaging, we’re proud to be a family owned business that is small enough to provide every customer with a personalised service, while having the capacity to handle large-scale product runs for major companies.


Also consider if your plastic manufacturer has a large production facility capable of creating customised plastic and film products at any scale to suit your specific requirements?  Remember that plastic manufacturing is a diverse industry that uses a variety of methods with different results. From plastic injection moulding to 3D printing, the approach of the company determines what kind of services they can offer for you. At Dolphin Plastics & Packaging, we manufacture a range of poly tube sizes, from poly bags on a roll and packaging into a carton to plastic sheeting and centrefold. We can even print your poly film to any requirements you may have. We can customise a print on your poly film product to match business logos, colour schemes, industry specifications and more.
