Since the business was started in 1973, Bluemay has specialised in the production of nylon threaded rod, custom injection mouldings and precision plastic engineering components for manufacturing and assembling industries.
A policy of investing in the business means not just an impressive suite of machines, equipment and systems but also stocks of standard parts and raw materials – as well as the trained people to ensure the processing of customer orders results in on-time despatch of finished products. We look forward to helping you with your requirements, no matter where in the world you are located.
