Corilla Plastics supports independent retailers through Dragon Garden Products launch

Machine investment enables South Wales manufacturer to expand its services

Rotational moulding specialist Corilla Plastics has unveiled the new brand Dragon Garden Products, as well as a new product line, Dragon Planters. Dragon Garden Products provides a rotational moulding service to craft robust plastic products for independent retail stockists, plus an avenue for independents nationwide to develop bespoke products for their stores.

Located in the heart of the Garw Valley in Pontycymer, Bridgend, Corilla Plastics has over 40 years’ experience in rotational moulding. Following a £400,000 investment, the company has expanded its rotational moulding capabilities to better support clients across a wide range of industries. This investment enabled the installation of a brand-new rotational moulding machine to increase production capacity and scale.

The new machine, named ‘Ffaldau’ in recognition of the local mining tradition, is a 4 meter-wide, 2 arm shuttle machine, equipped with an offset (drop arm) option. Serving as an upgrade to the existing array of machinery, Ffaldau has increased capacity at the factory by 50%.

With the launch of the Dragon Garden Products brand, Corilla Plastics recognises an opportunity to equip independent and SME businesses nationwide with the ability to source industrial-grade plastic products. RAL colour flexibility allows Dragon Garden Products create any number of products in any shade. The rotational moulding process is well-suited for creating reusable plastic products as the forming process does not introduce stress to the material, promoting strength. Dragon Garden Products endeavours to uphold sustainability by using manufacturing energy economically, and ensuring its products are long-lasting.

Within the Dragon Garden Products launch, the company has introduced a line of ‘Dragon Planters’, which are sophisticated garden planters suitable for the home or workplace. Stockists can now work with Dragon Garden Products as a supplier of planters for their store based on an existing range, and also tap into colourways unique to their business, or even new designs.

“We’re thrilled to be launching Dragon Garden Products,” said Selwyn Jones, Managing Director at Corilla Plastics. “Following the installation of our impressive Ffaldau machine, we now have much more capacity to take on rotomoulding projects. Rotational moulding is our process of choice and this investment only cements that case.”

Corilla Plastics encourages UK stockists to open a conversation about accessing exclusive lines, fast delivery and a dedicated account manager. To browse the new Dragon Garden Products range or become a stockist, visit the Dragon Garden Products website:
