Before and after the redesign
ProEconomy approached Bray Plastics looking to enhance their proven and successful ‘Orca’ water treatment station for Legionella control. Orca required updating for engineering, servicing and customer interface.
After we reviewed the requirement, Bray re-engineered the layout and mounting base, added graphics and generally repackaged an already very effective product.
Using our skills in design, plastic machining, fabrication, vacuum forming and assembly we worked closely with ProEconomy staff to quickly achieve a highly commercial product.
When my company, ProEconomy needed to upgrade the manufacture, performance and aesthetics of its water treatment equipment for Legionella control, finding the right supplier at first seemed daunting. However having received an introductory mailer from Bray Plastics, I decided to contact them to outline our requirement. From the outset, the guidance and expertise I received was reassuring and courteous. I was impressed with their willingness to take responsibility on my behalf to see the project through to its conclusion. The design improvement to our product is marked, the quality, finish and appeal have raised the profile of our equipment to higher level. Bray Plastics expertise has significantly helped ProEconomy achieve a world class product on time and on budget.
AES Cirrus originally came to Bray after becoming dissatisfied with their previous supplier. They were looking for Bray to be able to reproduce some of their current product range.
To produce various glove ports, doors, panels and component to tolerance and specified standard.
Bray used their extensive experience and knowledge of machining and fabricating difficult materials such as Premac® and other components for the medical industry to produce quality items in an effective and efficient way, suggesting where any improvement in design or production could be made.
Bray successfully reproduced the components for AES and now work with them on many new projects and designs too.
We have worked with Bray Plastics on many projects over the last few years. Their knowledge base and experience mean they continuously provide quality products and a high level of customer service. We have found them be professional, reliable and their insights and input have been extremely beneficial in the design, manufacture and fabrication of our components. The team at Bray are friendly, capable and flexible and a pleasure to do business with.
Mechline Developments, who supply the commercial kitchen/restaurant industry, had identified a new product opportunity. Having designed and produced a first prototype, they needed to engineer a production version.
Cost, functionality and external appearance were all of critical importance.
Bray produced a product which exceeded expectations and led to a very successful launch and roll out.
BRAY are an extremely professional company, we’ve always been pleased with the quality of service and the quality of the end products. BRAY are responsive to our issues & fulfil every order with speed, efficiency, professionalism & commitment. BRAY continue to do excellent job & we always feel we have achieved value for the money. The team are responsive, accurate and an absolute pleasure to work with. I would highly recommend them, and I look forward to continuing to work with them in the future.
Bray was asked for alternative options to reduce costs on an existing component.
Identifying the technical requirements and perimeters. Then proof testing.
Bray sourced a suitable alternative material with substantial cost savings.
Having tested the component an order for over 2400 units was received.
Can I take this opportunity to thank you and your staff for all the cooperation (and understanding!) we at EKA have received in the development and supply of components for our current Ministry of Defence project.
It is always a pleasure to deal with companies, whose expertise in fields where we are lacking knowledge and experience meets our expectations.
Having visited you personally with my ‘Quality Managers’ hat on, it is clear that EKA can use your services both in development and production at little to no risk and it is always a pleasure to see systems in place for the control of your diversity of products.
We hope that our recent experience with you as a new supplier to EKA develops into a long and mutually beneficial relationship to both of us.
Inzpire Limited required an effective solution to a problem associated with supporting a Tablet PC on a pilot’s knee under the extremely demanding conditions of military aircraft operation. It would be used in both fast jet and rotary wing applications.
Having already tried a major manufacturer for a solution which was unsuccessful, Inzpire then came to Bray for help with an extremely tight deadline.
To develop a low cost functional solution able to comply with in theatre operations and aerospace standards.
Bray consulted intensively with the customer and aircrew to ensure design perimeters were met.
Bray produced a first production unit within 6 weeks of initial instructions with over 300 units supplied on the first order. Bray continues to work closely with Inzpire on future projects.
The final Knee-Mount solution has transformed the way the Inzpire GECO system is used by its military customers.
Right from the start, Bray Plastics impressed us with their efficient, professional manner – an approach that not only inspired confidence, but also generated the results we were looking for. By partnering with Bray Plastics, we have been able to consistently meet our customers’ demanding delivery timeline. Geoff’s team has been extremely energetic, self-motivated and able to swiftly build and assimilate our design ideas and information. We were also impressed with their Project management skills, communication abilities and capability to convey and sell their recommendations to the Inzpire team. Thanks for the excellent service and we look forward to working with Bray Plastics for the foreseeable future.

Many customers have product or components no longer available for a variety of reasons. Bray can take these components and duplicate them either on a one off basis or volume production.
Bray Plastics were asked to reverse engineer an existing production forming by a prestige car manufacturer.
To reproduce production tooling from the original mould accounting for material shrinkage.
Bray reproduced section tooling which was reassembled taking shrinkage into account.
Orders were placed by Aston Martin for a specific custom application.
New tooling was manufactured from the original mouldings taking into account distortion and shrinkage.
The final forms were produced from fire retardant ABS.
Improve the aesthetics of the steel cabinet with vacuum formed panels.
