Whurl Plastics is a family-owned company started by John & Cushla Bloomfield in 1975. Over the years, all three of their children have worked at Whurl at some stage, as the company continuously gained an enviable reputation in the plastic injection moulding industry, doing business with some clients for more than 25 years.
In 2021, the business was acquired by Jana and Ben Thomas. Similarly sharing the same strong family and success values, Ben and Jana are committed to safeguarding the company's reputation of excellence by steadfastly providing high-quality products and services. Gregg Bloomfield, one of John and Cushla's sons, is an integral part of the company up to this day.
