Thermoplastic Sheet and Reel
Back in 1976, Stephen Webster and his father founded SWP to provide model makers and vacuum formers with a source of High Impact Polystyrene sheet (HIPS) and Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene sheet (ABS) in smaller quantities than manufacturers could produce. The range of products soon expanded to include Carbon Fibre Effect, Conductive, Fire Retardant, Mirrored and many more.
Since our inception over 45 years ago, we’ve added a wealth of new products such as ViPrint (polypropylene) and Staufen PVC for the stationery, graphic arts, print, and point of sale/point of purchase (POS/POP) sectors. For the POS/POP, confectionary, glazing and thermoforming sectors, our products also include PET and PETg, Polycarbonate (PC) and, APET Reels.
We’ve invested heavily in the latest cutting technologies to provide our customers with a bespoke cut to size service. This technology will benefit the very best suppliers in the industry with whom SWP are proud to work with and call ourselves a partner to. Most of our suppliers have worked with us for a very long time and produce high quality materials. SWP and their partners have forged strong relationships and we are continuously developing our product portfolio.
Since 2005 SWP were acquired by Vink UK which has only strengthened our product offering and also given us access to an even wider range of suppliers in the plastics industry. Vink UK Limited consists of 3 divisions, trading under 13 brands. All businesses share a common philosophy of having local people, local stock, local service and local conversion facilities, which enables us to meet your needs with a fast, efficient and quality service.
