Buying polymers? – the reasons for selecting the Best Polymer Distributor

We kicked off 2018 with a reminder of the many awards we have won in the last few years.

So why did we win these awards?  We demonstrated the great service we give our customers when they are buying polymers.

Our reach is wide – we work with over 350 leading European suppliers.

What have plastics ever done for us?

We are long-standing members of the British Plastics Federation (BPF).

So in February we posted 7 reasons you should love plastic. This was based on facts from the BPF’s trusted website.
