Manufacturing products in GRP
Fibreglass or GRP, with its inexpensive tooling, remains a cost-effective, versatile and reliable construction material for product components across a number of industry sectors.
Whatever the complexity of moulding or the final volume of production, stuart:pease are always cost-competitive, with fast turn around and an exemplary standard of quality workmanship.

Mould and pattern making
In addition to bespoke patterns and tools fabricated from drawings, their traditional craft skill of hand laying means that stuart:pease are able to refurbish and adapt existing moulds, or reverse engineer tools when the originals have been lost or damaged. See bespoke design & development.
Complete product manufacture
From the initial design discovery phase consultation onward, stuart:pease will continually consult and keep you aware of progress. An individual senior engineer is given overall responsibility for each project, meaning that you have a single point of contact throughout the process… with much less opportunity for information to be lost or mislaid.
Complex, single element, moulded forms
The skilled pattern makers at stuart:pease can work from any technical line drawing, in any format, so long as critical dimensions are provided. See GRP Planters.
High specification components
Glass Reinforced Plastic is an immensely versatile material that can be used to form complex shapes to fine tolerances.
Being non-conductive and, when manufactured to fire rating class 0/1, GRP complies with BS476, so is the ideal composite from which to engineer housings for electrical equipment and components such as the mains sockets incorporated into the hotel vanity unit shown here.
Volume run manufacturing
Far from being just an inexpensive prototyping material, GRP products can be manufactured in volume, just as cost-effectively and with total consistency of appearance.
