OVER 50 YEARS IN MANUFACTURING

Nordell is one of the UK’s leading independent Plastics Manufacturing and Design refinement companies.

 

It’s over 50 years since its first company registration in 1968 as Component Moulders at King Edward Close Worthing.

 

Our First Moulding Machine

 

The picture at the top of the page shows our first ever moulding machine.

 

It was the first of its type to be delivered to a manufacturer in the UK, as advertised in the PRW all those years ago.

 

A 20oz, 300t Akesson 550 Injection Moulding Machine. Purchased from Sweden, it cost £14,500, when average house prices would have been £3,900 in the area.
