Why we started

493K has been providing solutions for the rotational moulding industry since 2003, helping to reduce scrap rates, improve part quality and increase profits for their customers. 493K was established to exploit the engineering research and development work necessary to do this, which was formerly undertaken at the Rotational Moulding Research Centre, Queen’s University in Belfast, United Kingdom.

Maintaining relationships

No two moulders have identical needs, so good communication is essential.

It is a commitment taken very seriously within the company and every continuing effort is made to maintain and develop these relationships.

Our attitude to change

As technology advances, it is inevitable that rotational moulding will continue to evolve and change. At 493K, there is a dedication to monitoring these changes and to continually provide the best solutions to meet all future challenges with inventive and efficient design.


Since 2009, the company has offered rotomoulding-specific consultancy services to help moulders:

  • cut scrap rates;
  • reduce cycle times;
  • improve process optimisation.
