Faulkner Moulds are finalists in the 2017 Plastics Industry Awards in the Industrial Product Design of the Year category for our work on the WARNRV. The WARNRV inventor was shortlisted for the Travis Perkins Innovation Award and won the Examiner Business Innovation and Enterprise Award 2016.
The customer has stated that, due to the involved and long-term nature of this project, creating the NRV would have been impossible using foreign designers and toolmakers, calling it, “A great example of British design and engineering” and describing Faulkner Moulds' product design as, "Genius!".
“Faulkner Moulds were resolutely committed to the WARNRV project. We worked intensively in partnership for months, successfully creating it and achieving its British Standard. This would have been impossible without Faulkner Moulds' innovation, responsiveness, expertise and sheer determination.” - Jeff Monks, Chairman, Fisher Plastics.
“We were delighted that Faulkner Moulds designed a superb product that looks and functions far better than anything else on the market. The NRV is moulding excellently and selling successfully. It truly is a Premier League product, making the competition look Sunday League in comparison”. - Tony Ruddiman, CEO, The Flood Company.
Customer testimonials include:
“It felt like rats were going to…take over my house but…I am happy to say the rats lost. The WAR valves helped…These devices are very, very good…good quality and easy to fit and most importantly work as I now have no rats entering my house plumbing…I would encourage you to buy them”.
“Does what it says and cheaper than others on the market”.
“Throughout the whole experience we had superb quality design, toolmaking and customer service from Faulkner Moulds.
We knew the Shocksafe handle designer and toolmaker would require a highly technical understanding of how all the component parts could be overmoulded and assembled together successfully. We chose Faulkner Moulds for their proven track record in product development and high quality tooling.
A benefit to working with Faulkner Moulds is that Duncan is not just a ‘yes man’ who simply delivers the tool he is initially asked for. Duncan will look critically at the product and every aspect of the manufacturing process and come up with his own, innovative, recommendations. With Faulkner Moulds, we are reassured that we don’t just get what we believe we want, we get exactly what we need”.

“I contacted Duncan after searching online for injection moulding and tooling services for my Nookie Wedge product idea. This was my first venture involving tooling and manufacturing and Duncan was terrific at explaining the process and outlining the options. He helped me to refine the design, lined me up with a rubber manufacturer and even managed to pull the schedule forward. Faulkner Moulds not only provide a professional service and quality tooling but Duncan’s enthusiasm for what he does carries through and I really enjoyed learning about the different processes and watching his various projects taking shape. Many thanks.”
“Faulkner Moulds have helped turn our basic 2D drawings into full production ready solutions. Duncan Faulkner shows real passion for Design for Manufacture (DFM) principles and he has a genuine interest in our products, their function and the market place they serve. This enabled him to offer some very cost effective tooling design solutions and product features we would not otherwise have been able to implement. We feel this was a critical step in the development of our products and demonstrated that Faulkner Moulds are more than just a traditional tool maker. The earlier they are involved in the design phase the shorter the overall leadtime for design, toolmaking and initial moulding process development will be.”
“As a quality moulding company, we have worked with Faulkner Moulds on a number of projects and I continue to recommend them on many occasions. Duncan Faulkner guided us through the product development, working with 3D computer images and 3D printed models each step of the way. Combining the skills of product design, with tooling design and manufacture, Faulkner Moulds is able to turn ideas and concepts into a product that can be moulded efficiently.”
"Faulkner Moulds has been our preferred injection mould tooling supplier for many years and we have developed a close working relationship.
