Our History

Founded in the 1960s, KF Plastics has a long-standing reputation for excellence and quality craftsmanship. From humble beginnings in a small factory in Petersham, KF Plastics has grown to a team of skilled tradespeople, CNC operators and project managers who still hold traditional standards of workmanship as the foundation of their success.

Over the years, KF Plastics has adopted new technologies and methodologies to remain at the leading edge of plastics manufacturing. The addition of computers has seen the biggest change in production lead times and the introduction of our CNC router and CNC laser has been the catalyst for the most recent move to our current premises in Silverwater.

Although technology may have changed, our commitment to quality and exceptional customer service remains the same. The fabrication of acrylic is not a common path to take when learning a trade, and requires a special type of person to be able to adapt to the intricacies of dealing with the material. The KF Plastics team is continuously stepping up to the challenge of producing novel solutions, combining traditional processes and innovative thinking to create the best outcome possible.

Testimonials

“I recently contacted KF Plastics about cutting a pressure plate for my Kreepy Krauly pool cleaner. I understand from experience with another plastics fabricator that day a small job like mine is not considered profitable enough for some companies to bother with. I telephoned KF Plastics and it was a positive and thoroughly professional experience, the job was done rapidly without any fuss or problem. The staff are efficient, pleasant and HELPFUL – clearly the concept of customer service is understood at KF Plastics. Thank you.”
