Established in 1887, Willow is now one of the largest privately owned Australian plastics manufacturers. We have people highly qualified in all aspects of plastic injection and blow moulding as well as expandable poly-styrene (EPS foam) technologies from a design concept through to the manufacture of the finished product.

 

We operate 3 shifts over 24 hours, 5 days per week. Today, our business successfully competes against the cheaper labour and lower input cost countries such as China, India, Central Asia, New Zealand and the USA.

 

We currently manufacture and market Willow, Starmaid and The Reva Peg Company branded products for the major retailers and as well as manufacturing specialised products for the building and automotive industries as well as medical suppliers.We can manufacture a custom moulded product for you, no matter what your industry!
