Linic Plastics

Most of you know us by the company name Proops Brothers Ltd but we also talk a lot about our Parent Company, Linic Plastics Ltd.  Linic manufactures all of the plastic made products we sell including candle moulds, spreaders, etc.

Today we thought we’d take a little look behind the scenes in a plastic factory.

From design, through tooling to manufacturing and packing ready for distribution, it all takes place in our factory.

We use both virgin and recycled pellets to create the finished products, always using recycled material whenever possible.

Thanks for stopping by.  Hope you have a great week.

Weaving Loom Boards

 

We are having such a creative week here in the Proops office.  How fun is this IPad cover which we have made using our latest product – an A4 weaving loom board.  We are also selling these as part of a set with our smaller sized weaving loom boards.  The smaller board is the perfect size for phone covers, which we have also made.

 

The weaving loom board sets come with a comb and three different threading needles all made from plastic, making them easy to use and safe for children. They would be a great project for them during the summer holidays to keep them busy for a while!

These looms can be used for more than just phone and tablet covers, so why not get creative and don’t forget to tag us in your photos of your projects, we’d love to see what you’ve made!

Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great week.

Pastry Dough Scrapers

 

I’m hoping to get some time for a little baking this weekend with plans to make some pies and bread.  I will definitely be using these great pastry/dough scrapers to make the job easier.

Our scrapers are made from stiff plastic so they wont mark your work surfaces.  There is enough flexibility in the plastic to contour to the side of the bowl but they are firm enough to scrape and move the pastry or dough easily.  These hardwearing scrapers are practical, easy to clean and are available in three shapes and two colours. (For retailers and schools we can supply larger quantities in specific colours to suit your needs.)  We also have stacking bowls, star and gingerbread man/woman cutters on our website – why not pop over and have a look.
