We are flexible enough to work with our customers to ensure we hit the lead time they require. Accrued Plastic Ltd have 5 slitting and rewind machines within the production facility. We can slit bespoke sizes from film stocks, or we can slit and convert customer supplied film, plain or printed. All slit reels are supplied fully labelled for traceability back to master reel and wrapped and palletised as per customer requirements and specifications.
Accrued Plastic strives to offer a high quality product at a reasonable price, with a friendly and professional customer service. Our newly commissioned slitting machine has allowed us to reduce our lead times and to accommodate urgent requirements from customers.
