Did you know that when Eagle Plastics started over 20 years ago, our sole stocked product was HIPS (High Impact Polystyrene)? We’ve been supplying this versatile plastic since day one and in the years since our inaugural sale we’ve gone on to sell tonnes of this cost-effective material and advise hundreds of businesses on its suitability for their required job.

With all of these years specialising in it, we think it’s fair to say we are the masters of High Impact Polystyrene and if there was a HIPS Olympics, we’d be taking home the gold again and again!

Masters of High Impact Polystyrene and many more…

It’s this product mastery that has helped to make this July a record breaking month. As James Ivison, our UK Sales Manager, commented:

“It was such a proud day for the team at Eagle Plastics Ltd, setting a new record month sales turnover. The recent re-structuring and addition of key new members of staff is paying off and becoming evidenced by the team setting records and driving the company’s incredible growth. I am so proud of the whole team’s efforts. Our clients know that our customer service and thermoplastics product knowledge is second to none. Here’s to hitting another record next month – watch this space!”

Eagle Plastics is a leading independent supplier stocking a wide range of thermoplastic sheet materials, but High Impact Polystyrene is where it all began.

To understand the many uses of High Impact Polystyrene, look no further than your own home.


You’ll be amazed at the sheer number of everyday items that are created out of it; from toilet seats and bathroom cabinets to TV and audio-visual equipment parts, bicycle trailers and children’s toys.


Unique qualities

HIPS has unique qualities that involve strength, hygiene and heat retention, while always remaining in shape and robust, making it perfect for so many industries – it even gave us the pleasure of stereo speakers during the golden age of pop music in the ‘60s and ‘70s!
