The order was placed by a regular customer, Deb Group, who have been utilising RP’s services since April 2015 to produce prototype and low volume plastic components.

The order for the 1,000th tool follows the companies restructure in November 2012 when they opened an injection moulding facility.

To celebrate the landmark order RP Technologies have donated £1,000 to Deb Group’s chosen cancer charity, Macmillan Cancer Support.

Darren Withers, director at RP Technologies, says: “We are honoured to donate £1,000 to Macmillan, the support they provide helps people to live their lives again. We also want to thank Deb for their repeat custom. It’s customers like Deb that allow us to sustain our growth at RP Technologies meaning we can continue to offer high quality services. Here’s to the next thousand tools.”
