New Capabilities: Meet The New Fleet!

At the end of last year, Sinclair & Rush acquired 8 new injection moulding machines which have since been moved into main production centre in Rochester. And with new machines brings new capabilities!

The addition of these new machines means that we can now run larger tools, and therefore produce larger items. We can also run small items in larger tools for more impressions per cycle! This all means that high-volume jobs can be produced more quickly and efficiently, resulting in a better service for our valued customers.

Let’s meet the fleet!
