Only 11.5% of Australian plastic waste is recycled. Boxhead Plastics was founded in response to this plastic waste crisis.
Early experiments centered on recycling PET plastic from discarded bottles to produce filament used in 3D printers.
In 2017 we started experimenting with polypropylene car bumper bars, handcrafting boxes from this plastic material. This is where the name Boxhead Plastics comes from
In 2018, Boxhead Founder Bec Healy, enrolled at Lidcombe TAFE studying Polymer Technology.
By 2020, Boxhead Plastics had successfully forged a chain of relationships that turns ocally recycled car bumper bars into a feedstock ready for injection moulding.
Today we manufacture the Naiteev Golf Tee from recycled car bumper bars
