Ark-Plas injection moulded and extruded plastic components

Ark-Plas is a manufacturer of injection moulded and extruded plastic components.  Their products include a range of Luers, Barbed Connectors, Stopcocks, Check Valves, Tubing and more.

For over thirty years, Ark-Plas has served a wide range of markets from the life sciences to industrial.  This extensive experience allows us to bring The West Group customers a wealth of knowledge.

Leading the way in Injection Moulding Manufacturing, each catalogue item can be produced using non-standard materials and their respective variations.  Additionally, specialty materials not usually stocked can be made available.  

To accompany the standard product range, we offer our customers the engineering and design experience available from the Ark-Plas engineering and design team.  The latest CAD design techniques are combined with tool fabrication on sophisticated controlled steel cutting equipment.  This allows our customers to benefit from custom built tooling for specific component design and production.  

Using state of the art in-line process monitoring equipment, the Ark-Plas range of tubing is only ever produced to the highest quality.  The complete range of plastic extruded tubing is available in a variety of materials and sizes, allowing for a 'custom fit' with standard catalogue items.
