Polaris Business of the Month

This month we have Green Fields plastics manufacturer Precimax Plastics, celebrating their 50th birthday this year. The business was founded as Precimax Tooling in 1970 by Don Gilchrist, a toolmaker who had worked for Rolls Royce Engines in the UK and later immigrated to Salisbury from Scotland. 

In the early 1980s Precimax targeted the White Goods industry for growth. After winning a major contract in 1991, Precimax moved to the existing site.

While the mix of customers and work has changed over the years Precimax has maintained its strong position in the plastics industry. Over the years Precimax has invested steadily in modern injection moulding machines, systems and people to maintain competitiveness.   It is now home to 19 moulding machines from 100 to 850 tonne capacity and 35 staff, making it one of the largest plastics manufacturers in Adelaide.    Precimax has a long and proud 50 year history in the Northern Adelaide suburbs and looks forward to continuing to support Australian manufacturers and entrepreneurs for the next 50 years.  Check out their website gallery to see if you recognise some of their products.
