Plastfix reached its milestone 5th year anniversary just last week, the company that is championing the management of automotive plastic waste and leading the way by innovating its restoration process of plastic car parts in the collision repair industry.
Over the 5 years, Plastfix has diverted 740 tonnes of plastic parts from general waste, created 54 jobs and counting, processed over 200,000 plastic parts and over 1,400 tonnes of carbon emissions have been abated. A great achievement that would not have been possible without the support of its key partners AMA Group, Capital SMART and Bridgepoint Group.
Since its inception the company has gone from strength to strength developing its unique filler free plastic restoration process, running a paper free business model via its cloud and mobile based applications, designed and developed their own speciality hand tools and created 3D printing material and systems for the repair of headlight tabs.
“It has been a wonderful journey to date, we have the privilege of working with two of the worlds most advanced collision repair brands AMA Group and Capital SMART, driven by the demand of our client base, Plastfix holds a strong focus on advancing technologies and innovation in plastic restoration and waste management. I am confident to say we are an industry leader in our space,said Plastfix CEO, Mario Dimovski.
I am very proud and grateful for the Plastfix team, from our on-field technicians, administrators to management who all play a pivotal role in shaping our culture, services and company values. It is a great feeling when you can say we enjoy a staff retention rate of over 90 percent.” Dimovski went on to say, “The downtime due to the coronavirus allowed us to plan and reassess our business offerings. We have some very exciting developments in progress such as our digital training collaboration with I-CAR and the launch of our EU based 3D Collision Lab that will focus on the development and manufacturing of automotive repair grade 3D printers, parts and tools.”
With the industry getting back into swing, Plastfix has recently commenced its recruitment drive with over a dozen positions open in several states to support its key clients the AMA Group and Capital SMART with plans to triple its work volume and team in the next 24 months.
In order to scale up and deliver new skills and training, Plastfix is working closely with its sister company Tradiebot Industries as it shifts its attention from hands on training to remote technology and virtual training solutions which has been accelerated by the COVID-19 crisis.
Plastfix is in the final stages of preparing for the launch of their Digital Training and Streaming Studio that has been established within the MTA SA Auto Innovation Hub in South Australia, with plans to stream out content to staff as part of their upskilling programs and possible I-CAR training courses.
To mark the milestone the company has launched its new tagline: “Our Planet, Your Choice” as it encourages the industry to repair parts rather than purchase replacements, a big factor behind the groups Waste Motive Initiative that is planned to recomence in July.
