Plastic Injection Moulding Solutions for Agriculture

Robust, Custom-designed, Innovative and Sustainable – B&C Plastics Commitment to Farming and Agricultural Plastics Solutions

Australia’s farming and rural community rely on an ever-increasing supply of plastic products. These products need to be reliable and durable enough for use on a daily basis. Light-weight, tough, sustainable and resistant to the harsh Australian climate, we manufacture a variety of plastic product solutions, suitable for industry and reliable enough for daily use.

From soil and crop cultivation, rearing animals to provide food and fleece, and harvesting specifications, B&C Plastics has extensive experience assisting farmers, growers and producers alike. At the end of the production chain, durable, portable packaging and robust transportation components are just a few examples of how plastic products have provided solutions for the agricultural sector.

For an industry that relies heavily on long-haul transportation and weight considerations, the benefits of plastic moulding applications and the related products are endless.

Products designed for the agriculture industry need to be hard wearing.

Depending on the product you are looking to create, this may include adding an ultra violet protection to the plastic during manufacture.

  1. Thinking you’ll need to make your product food grade?
    1. No worries! We’re already working with a number of customers who use bespoke food grade Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and ultra violet protected, food grade Polypropylene in the manufacture of their product.
  2. What if I don’t even have a design yet?
    1. No problem, we can work with you directly to design your very own unique injection moulds to generate specific plastic components just for you.

The B&C Plastics team will work with you directly to develop the design, choose the right polymer and create the product you need.

Agricultural and Horticultural Plastics

The agricultural industry relies heavily on the supply, storage and transportation of fresh produce across Australia. Plastic products can provide unique solutions to those operating in the agricultural and horticultural industries.

Plastic Injection Moulding can provide a unique remedy to the supply of food grade containers that are available through all stages of the agricultural process. Through the design and development of customised solutions, fresh produce can be grown and transported in lightweight, stackable and hardwearing cases. From cultivation to full maturity – utilising the advantages of  plastic mouldings we can provide a tailor-made product that is reusable and ecologically-friendly.

3D Design Prototyping & Innovation

For agricultural products, innovation and prototyping can be useful to understand the functional components that will make up the final product. We have worked with many industries to design, refine and manufacture complete solutions for their specific needs. If you are looking for a bespoke solution to your horticultural requirements, contact our experienced team.
