A British molder is bringing production of a plastic shoe hanger to Hengrove, England, with the help of a 100,000 pounds ($166,000) grant, from the West of England Growth Fund.

Phineas Group International makes more than 60 million plastic shoe hangers sold across Asia, North America and Europe and used at prominent retail shops.

“We make much of our product in China for the Asia market, but we have a growing demand in Europe and we’re passionate about on-shoring [bringing this production back] to Britain, and Bristol is a great city to base ourselves in,” said Managing Director Dan Wright.

The grant “has enabled us to invest in new premises and equipment in South Bristol. We’re now able to offer a closed loop plastic recycling and injection molding service to other businesses for other types of products from here in Bristol.”
