Professional Development and Training

Sep 05, 2019

Supporting employees with their Professional Development isn’t always easy within the time constraints and pressures of the general working day. Yizumi Moulding Machine

However we acknowledge the absolute importance of keeping ourselves at the forefront of current technologies; and in addition, we want to ensure we remain passionate and excited about what we do. 

Injection Moulding Training

With this in mind, we arranged for two of our moulders to head up to Peterborough for an intensive week’s injection moulding training at RJG Technology Ltd.

The range of moulding machines at RJG is huge! Having recently acquired a Yizumi injection moulding machine, it was an ideal opportunity to be able to experience one to one training.  We all know everyone tends to have their favourite, be it Engel, Krauss, Boy etc and to have the time and opportunity to learn how to get the best out of the Yizumi, being slightly more uncommon, without the pressure of deadlines and time frames in the wings, was invaluable.


Our thanks to the instructors at RJG – the course was a huge success, and the first candidate has already returned full of enthusiasm and bursting with ideas to share with the rest off the team – proof it was definitely well worth making the effort for a little bit of time out!

H & S Lift Truck Training

Before the summer disappeared completely, we decided to try and make the most of the sunshine and booked our local Training provider to conduct our company Lift Truck Training.  Thankfully it was a glorious day! 

Health and Safety compliance is not and should not be just a ‘tick in the box’ exercise. On behalf of our clients and our employees we take it extremely seriously – but wherever we can we’ll make it a fun to do exercise…and if there’s a chance to get in the sunshine for a day then that’s a huge bonus!

  • Plunkett Associates worked on the design and production of titanium frames for an artificial heart valve where precision and consistency was paramount. Communications were efficient and productive with concepts readily incorporated into the final design, and suggestions for improvements all highly appropriate. The quality of the end product was ideal and I have no doubt that I will use the advice and expertise of Plunkett Associates again.
