2017 – What did this Polymer Supplier get up to?
Time flies they say and it did for us. We thought we would remind ourselves and you with a recap of our news from last year.
Rebranded Logo & New Polymer Website
We were excited to kick off last year with a rebrand and launch of our new polymer website.
We specialise in sourcing and distributing engineering and high performance polymers.
As our company grows we continue to embrace new technology. The new website was carefully constructed by web designers Inigo Media. They crafted the site so that we can better communicate with and serve our customers.
Hardie Polymers rebrand
The website featured a fresh new dynamic logo to reflects the evolution of this polymer supplier.
We hope you find the time to browse our website and also read how we’ve spent 10 years building the most comprehensive global supply network.
You can read all about our company history and our dedicated staff. Learn how easy it is to search for the exact grade of plastic you need.
Our Team – Getting great polymer supplier deals for you
We continued introducing the Hardie Polymers team and featured two of our staff last year. Our Sales Administrator, Linda Tonner and our new Sales Team Member, Robert Phair were featured.
We regularly invest in the knowledge and skills of our staff. With this in mind, also in our news last year was Bartosz for completing a two day polymer training course on ‘Materials Appreciation’.
This was run at the renowned Polymer Training & Innovation Centre at the City of Wolverhampton College.
But what do our customers say about us?
We’re proud to have been awarded a selection of industry awards in the last few years. However, most importantly, what do Hardie Polymers polymer supplier customers have to say about the service they receive?
So we featured a few quotes from Hardie Polymers customers you are welcome to read here.
