A MALVERN business is celebrating its 100-year anniversary.

Plastic injection moulding company Talisman Plastics, which is based in Spring Lane, started life in the 1920s as LGG Charlesworth.

It established itself by moulding electrical and crystal radio set connectors, and later manufactured miners’ lamps among other items.

In 2018 the company rebranded as Talisman Plastics and today it produces tooling, mouldings, and assemblies for a wide range of clients around the globe.

The company has recently invested in new machines and solar panels, allowing Talisman to run efficiently, increasing output, and improving energy efficiency.

Over the past 12 months, Talisman achieved both ISO14001 and BRCGS for Packaging Materials accreditations.

The team at Talisman will be marking this special occasion at the 75th anniversary of the Interplas Exhibition at the NEC in September, where they will be presenting some of their latest moulding solutions.

Talisman will also be hosting a party locally for its staff to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Managing director Shaun Champion said: “This is a huge landmark for the company.

“Given the challenges the UK economy has faced recently, for any British manufacturing company to reach 100 years of trading is an incredible achievement.

“The whole team is very proud of this, and I am sure the celebrations planned will be enjoyed by all.

“Our belief is that we have reached this stage through hard work, dedication and forward thinking from everybody involved at Talisman Plastics.

“This extends to all the current staff, many of whom have long service and every person who has been involved in the company since the beginning. We’re going to use this formula to carry on growing and developing for many more years to come.

“Look out for us on stand G4 at Interplas 2023, if you’re attending, please pop by and say hello.

“You never know, there might even be a glass of celebration bubbly on offer.”
