"3D Printing Technology Leads to Plastic Innovation" Fast Thinking

B&C Plastics specialises in plastic injection moulding and toolmaking for a variety of industries including homeware, mining, building and construction and electronics.

Always looking to improve, and a strong advocate for innovation, the company has engaged with a number of innovation programs in the past to remain at the cutting edge of what it does. These programs include Innovation Coaching, a joint initiative of the Australian Institute for Commercialisation (AIC) and Queensland Government's Department of Employment, Economic Development and Innovation (DEEDI).

The program assists SMEs with innovation strategy, knowledge transfer, commercialisation advice, access to networks and referrals to specialists. In 2009 the AIC supported B&C Plastics to grow the business through business model innovation and developing additional revenue streams. The program also assisted the company to more effectively manage intellectual property (IP) and to identify and attract government funding to support further growth.
