    Delighted to be Selected as a Covid Business Hero by the Plastics Industry Awards

    Hardie Polymers is honoured to have been selected as a Covid Business Hero by the Plastics Industry Awards (PIA) 2021 for our support for Covid 19 research.

    This was in recognition of our response to the pandemic and as a force for good within the plastics industry. We donated to the University of Glasgow’s Centre for Virus Research who were at the forefront of research into Covid.

    All PIA Covid Heroes will be recognised and honoured as part of the Plastics Industry Awards Ceremony on 2nd December at the Hilton Waldorf London. 

    Hardie Polymers are looking forward to a memorable and proud evening. An overall winner of the Covid category will be announced that night.

    Last year, our statement below was published in the British Plastics & Rubber Magazine newsletter and their blog. It was also featured in the Plastikcity newsletter and their Plastikmedia blog.

    Fergus Hardie, Managing Director at Hardie Polymers, commented:

    “We were inundated with requests for engineering polymers for medical parts since the outbreak began. Our team did fantastic work as always to get these materials to all the UK injection moulding companies out there who supported this great national effort.

    “With Alumni from the University of Glasgow amongst our sales team and a supply relationship with the University too, we wanted to make a contribution to their excellent work to help defeat the virus.”
