AV Injection History Billion Moulding Machine

AV Injection start life in 1979 as a company called Dalatek Ltd using three Plastic Injection Moulding machines producing their own plastic products for the medical industry. The founders of the company were both Mould Tool Designers with over 40 years of experience designing Injection Moulds for all different types of Industries. This was a key service to all their customers and still is in the present day. 

1983 Dalatek commenced new Plastic Injection Moulding solutions for other industries such as cosmetic, building industry and household products. Dalatek started an Plastic Extrusion division for one of its customers and soon expanded this department and opened a separate factory to house the extrusion plant and machinery. Dalatek were now operating two factory units, Plastic Injection Moulding factory with 12 Injection machines, and in the new factory five lines of Plastic Extrusion.

1985 A dedicated Tool Room was provided to help maintain Injection Mould tools and extrusion dies to peak condition to produce the high quality parts needed. This also provided a service that Dalatek could design and manufacture their Injection Moulds and Extrusion dies, test and trial, then give samples to customers in very short lead times.

1987 Opened new factory with 14 Injection Moulding machines, 6 extruder lines and a dedicated Tool Room. The number of machines steadily grew as the company branched out into new areas, which in turn attracted new clients.

1992 Introduced a Printing Department. Silk Screen and Offset Printing machines were installed. These were being utilised in conjunction with the injection moulding department to print drinks bottles and small drinking cups with various designs. These designs ranged from Coca Cola to Disneyland to other various Hollywood film designs.

2002 Changed our name to Dalatek Plastics after one of the founding directors decided that he wanted to retire from business. The company offered shares to various senior members and this, with the help of the remaining senior director ran up until 2005 when a major reshuffle took place.

2005 Dalatek plastics split into 3 separate companies running under one umbrella. They became known as AV Injection, Tech Tube and Corrutube. AV Injection carried on with the plastic injection moulding side of the business, Tech tube carried on with the printing side and Corrutube ran the extrusion side.
