Quality & Environmental Policy

It is the aim of the Oadby Plastics Group (Oadby Plastics Ltd, A.B.G. Rubber & Plastics Ltd, Anglia Plastics Ltd and Direct Plastics Ltd) to achieve sustained, profitable growth by providing quality, cost-effective products which consistently meet and exceed expectations as we continue to push towards customer excellence. We understand that part of this product and service provision is the requirement for us to consider the lifecycle of our products, and the aspects of our organisation that may impact the environment.

Therefore, Oadby Group makes it a priority to meet the needs of our stakeholders whilst minimising the impacts on the environment, which we encourage in our end-to-end supply chain to deliver a sustainable future for all.
