The story behind Bloom-in-box

Who are we?

Bloom-in-Box is a family run business with over 56 years experience in the plastic injection moulding industry. It all began with Allan Reardon in 1961, and then his son David Reardon joined in 1988. From here it led to the creation of Bloom-in-Box which was formed in the year 2000 to design, manufacture and sell unique products holding the ethos of eco-friendly at the heart of everything we do.

We now have the third generation joining the team with Hannah and Tom. Tom has a degree in ‘Mechatronics and Robotic Systems BEng (Hons)’ completed at The University of Liverpool, and Hannah has just completed her degree at Edge Hill University of ‘BSc (Hons) in Web Design and Development.’

What do we do?

We have a wide range of energy efficient machines and robots to ensure we work in harmony with the environment. With the use of the latest technology from Computer Aided Design and 3D Printing, all our products can be designed, manufactured and sold here in the United Kingdom and world wide.

We make a wide range of products which include Floristry packaging, security spike systems, laundry pegs, Scoops and measures and much more. We do have some very exciting projects on the way, but they are top secret at the moment, so stay tuned.

With our experience and technology in house we are able to take an idea all the way through to market. So if you have an idea, our door is always open to give advice and see how we could help you. Part of a business is taking on new projects, if you have any components you would like designed, prototype and manufactured follow the link below.

Why we promote the use of Plastic?

In the current climate plastic has been at the top of everyone’s lists. But is it plastic that’s the problem?

Here at Bloom-in-Box we know that plastic is not the problem. Plastic has so many uses in everyday life, and one might go as far as to say its vital. Our ethos here at Bloom-in-Box is this ‘Designing products with more than just one life.’

We think it is so important to recycle, and did you know plastic is more eco-friendly than you are led to believe. To combat the current issue we believe it is not the banning of plastic, but instead to educate people on the ways of recycling further and really encourage the reuse of it.

As we say ‘Plastic has more than one use’ and The Bloomie is a prime example. They are made of 99% recycled material and are then 100% recyclable. With the use of an innovating technique of in mould labelling and recycled plastic ,we were able to create a beautiful products. This shows how recycled plastic can be used again, and even our box can be recycled and turned back into a Bloomie.

Just a thought to think on there is not just one type of plastic, in fact, there are hundreds and yet the only thing the news promotes is the destruction it causes. But how can a plastic bottle cause a problem… the answer is it can not, but people can.

We are constantly creating innovative ways to use recycled plastic, and are now looking into compostible plastic for some products. The world of plastic is far more than you would believe and we hope you follow us on our journey to creating a positive plastic and sustainable future.
