About RBM Plastics

History

RBM Plastic Extrusions Pty Ltd was founded in 1964, and is one of the largest privately owned plastic extrusion manufacturing companies in Australia. RBM Plastics specialises in the extrusion of a wide range of plastic profiles, magnetic profiles and plastic tubing using a variety of polymers.

RBM Plastics has a Quality Management System in place that is accredited to ISO 9001:2008. Our expertise in the design and manufacture of Tooling, including Extrusion Dies and Calibrators, enables us to provide consistent quality and close tolerances on our extruded products.

Over the years, RBM Plastics has acquired a number of competitors in the plastics extrusion industry, and continue to build our business through both ‘organic growth’ and strategic ‘bolt on’ acquisitions.

In early 2012, we merged our Victorian Paramount Plastics Extrusion Operation into our main manufacturing operation in Sydney, which has resulted in increased efficiencies as well as a diversified range of equipment and increased capacity.

As well as extruding a wide range of profiles and tubing, RBM Plastics specialise in the manufacture of Flexible PVC Compound and Coloured Masterbatches. We have one of the most modern compound manufacturing plants in Australia and have implemented a computer controlled batching and mixing operation, which provides consistent quality throughout batch-to-batch mixes.

RBM Plastics manufacture over 5,000 different extruded profiles and tubes, which are used in many industries. We are able to manufacture our profiles from a range of polymers to suit specific applications.

We are continually investing in the latest technology so we can provide up to date production facilities for our clients.

A Proud Family Business

In 2010, Tony McWilliam purchased all the shares in the business from the family and since then has been running a successful manufacturing company with his two sons, thus projecting the business into a 5th generation family run company.
