Success On a Tray For Barplas

hp-2The Lord Mayor of Bradford used his ceremonial finger to help a firm hit a major landmark in paint tray production.

Councillor Stanley King was on hand to push the button which produced plastics manufacturer Barplas’s 250,000th tray.

Made of scrap plastic from the company’s core business of producing containers for the paint and DIY trade, the trays are part of managing director Brian Barghout’s three-year expansion plan.

Mr Brian Barghout hopes to double turnover to £5 million and has invested £500,000 in machinery to process the waste created during manufacturing. The firm, which employs 35 in Marshfields, Bradford, plans to produce six million trays by 2002.
