A Dublin, Ireland-based company with multi-faceted operations across three countries has been launched in a move to unify its businesses into a single plastics brand.

 

Created through a string of strategic acquisitions by One51plc Group, the new OnePlastics Group sees seven businesses come together under a unified brand umbrella with a view to offering plastic products in a variety of sectors.

 

OnePlastics Group said in an official statement that it plans to grow its client base organically by “delivering innovative solutions and by acquiring strategic targets”, which include the recent purchase of Straight plc – a UK-based wheeled bin and recycling container manufacturer.

 

“The launch of OnePlastics Group is a unique and innovative step and we have very ambitious plans for this new brand,” said Conor Sugrue, commercial director of OnePlastics Group, in a statement. “The plastics division within One51plc group has been enjoying strong growth in recent years and the creation of the OnePlastics Group brand as a separate entity will give us a strong platform to realise our vision of becoming a leading manufacturer of plastics products in each of the sectors in which we operate. Bringing all the businesses together with all their different capabilities makes sense from a strategic level and also gives our customers access to a very strong offering in terms of price, service and innovation.”

 

According to the statement, OnePlastics Group currently operates with a combined turnover of around 150million euros (approximately Cnd$200 million), and will employ 450 people. It will design and manufacture a range of products across a number of key markets and sectors and will also offer full contract manufacturing and related services.

 

The seven businesses that comprise OnePlastics Group include MGB Plastics, Straight, AAC Plastics and Protech Performance Containers in the UK. Protech Performance Plastics and Thormac Engineering in Ireland and Protech Plastics China in Shanghai complete the portfolio.

 

The company is also opening a North American support office in Boston, Mass.
