Barkley Plastics builds high precision tools for all applications from our large in-house toolroom facility

We have produced and maintained tooling from our premises for more than 55 years and using our wealth of engineering experience dating back to the industrial heritage from Lucas, we have earned a reputation for excellence in producing high precision tools.

With highly experienced toolmaking personnel, we can be relied upon to deliver your tooling to the highest possible quality with a guarantee for the life of the product and beyond.

Whilst most tool manufacture is handled in house we also have a small selection of trusted and approved partners in the Far East that we have developed strong relationships with. Should this be the option our client wants to go for we will project manage, assist with design and manufacture methods, and will take on responsibility from start to finish to ensure Barkley Plastics strict specifications are adhered to. These tools are then maintained at our UK site.

Barkley Plastics Quality Guarantee

If we manufacture the mould tool (at Barkley Birmingham) and run the tool in our production facility we will guarantee the tooling for the product life with no additional costs being incurred to our customers for the life of the tool.

If a lifetime lasting tool is not required then prototype or soft tools can be produced. The tools can be manufactured to your budget.

The lifetime guarantee is for 95% of conventional tools, and does not include:

  • Complex two-shot tooling
  • Tools moulding very abrasive materials such as glass filled nylons
  • We can not guarantee bought-in hot runner systems.
