Bose PDF


Bose has contracted Collins Plastics to fit out their factories in Ireland and around Europe to a custom specification using various plastic materials and methods of fabrication.  The European contract involved printing in various languages along with complex displays that had to be adapted for every country.






3G Project PDF

Collins Plastics has worked closely with Johnston Shopfitters Ireland for almost 25 years.   Collins Plastics manufacture and supply shop and office fittines and units for 3G projects.

An example of a 3G shopfit was Store 2000. Johnston Shopfitters oversaw the steelwork and the shopfit and Collins Plastics manufactured the acrylic shop units. This involved making phone holders, perspex cubes, opal white backdrops, acrylic surrounds in various colours, counter displays, lockable display cases, perspex dump bins, counter displays, card holders and price ticket holders. This project was rolled out over the country and took 14 months to complete. We are currently working on other projects with Johnston Shop fitters.

Cadburys PDF

Cadburys contracted Collins Plastics to design and manufacture a point of sale display unit to be used in retail outlets all over Ireland. Being specialists in custom shop display units, we created a few samples and designs before signing off on a unit incorporating the profile of a wave with the Cadburys two glasses in the middle pouring milk into the chocolate.


Point of Sale Display Stands

The manufacturing process to create these custom made point of sale display stands involved, laser cutting the panels, screen printing the glasses and then shaping the unit to the angle of the retail counter. We also designed a display unit for Cadburys snacks pink, blue and purple.

Museum of Country Life PDF
Collins Plastics were contracted by the Museum of Country Life in Castlebar to design and fabricate a Perspex house for an exhibition that was taking place in the museum.  We laser cut some parts, vacuum formed other parts, drape formed the frame, router cut the legs, and assembled all in the factory before transporting and installing it in the museum. The project took 10 weeks to complete.


Longnecks PDF
Collins Plastics won the contract for the manufacture and fit out of Longnecks Night Club in Ballina. The project designs were already prepared but a team of fabricators to manufacture and install the units was required.

On this project we used a variety of materials including; corian, perspex, poycarbonate, acrylic mirror, polyethylene, acrylic tubes, frosted acrylic, and opal acrylic. In line with the ‚Äúbarrel‚ÄĚ theme; a curved cocktail bar and counter front were made from corian, the backdrop was made from acrylic mirror and frosted perspex was used to facilitate a complex lighting effect.

Acrylic tubes were used over the main bar - also changing colour with lighting. The DJ booth was made from 3mm opal polycarbonate, the backdrop was made from polyprophalene.  Acrylic mirror was used for the shelves in the bar. The lightboxes were made from polycarbonate. The longnecks project was very challenging and demanded the very best from our team and it shows in the quality of the finished units. The project took 12 weeks to complete.

Euroshop PDF
Collins Plastics have been working in partnership with Nomadic Display for almost 20 years concentrating primarily on perspex displays for shop fittings, exhibitions stands and other conferences and events.

We were invited to manufacture the acrylic shop fittings for Nomadics Display for their client  Euroshop in Dusseldorf. This project involved translucent ruby red acrylic for shelving,  profiles and shop fittings. We used 10mm polar cast acrylic for the floor, clear acrylic wing pockets + cables for shop wall displays, acrylic mirror for wall panelling, butler finish Diabond for cut out letters and 20mm clear acrylic for rastered signs.

McLoughlin’s Pharmacy PDF

Collins Plastics were contracted by Michael McLoughlin to assist with pharmacy shop design including fabrication and erection of all display cabinets and units.


Pharmacy Shop Design

Using our expertise we reviewed the shell of the shop and made suggestions to the builder and engineer in relation to the best way to use the lighting with perspex. On this project we used 5mm opal acrylic for the wall panelling, 3mm opal polycarbonate for the bulk head, 15mm clear acrylic for the shelves, 6mm clear acrylic for the light boxes, 19mm PVC for the letters, and a combination of plastic fittings.


Display Cabinets and Units

For the display units,  we cut and shaped the wall panelling including adjustable shelves. The centre floor gondolas had to be lit up so we cut and fabricated the  display units around a carcass.  A top hat  was then made and shelved with integrated lighting to complete the look.   
All shelves were curved and laser cut from 15mm clear perspex. The light boxes were cut from 5mm opal acrylic and built into a frame to leave room for more shelving below; shelves were made from 15mm clear plastic perspex. We used 3mm opal polycarbonate for the bulk heads. This had to be curved to take the profile of the shop - 5mm rebate for 3mm material.

The full project took 14 weeks and reflects what can be achieved when the right vision and technical know-how are combined.
