Nylacast is regarded as a world leader in the development of engineered plastic solutions. Working with customers from the initial design stages to the end component, Nylacast can select the most performance-enhancing and value-adding material for the specific application needs.

Some of the success stories that come through the initiatives that Leicestershire Cares offers are fantastic to see and as a company, we feel very privileged to be a part of them.”

Ian Mallabone, Group HR Manager


“Giving back to the local community is something the Nylacast team feel passionately about and through the continued hard work and determination of Leicestershire Cares we have been able to achieve this.

Participating in a recent Team Challenge to revamp a local children’s nursery located in the heart of Leicester, was a fantastic opportunity to see the physical change & positive results a small group of people can make by volunteering a small amount their time and effort”.

Sonia Dehal, Material Sales


“Helping to organise an extremely successful Charity Auction in support of Leicestershire Cares Collect 4 Christmas campaign, and knowing that the donations will really benefit those in need within the community, feels very rewarding and well worth the time and effort it took to organise such an event!”
