First a big thanks to AndyK for the intel. Visited on my own and I had hoped to see those amazing labs and other areas widely covered in his excellent report. Sadly I lost my nerve because of the loud radio music emanating through the centre of the building where security must of been hanging out. Luckily there was still quite a lot to see of the three floors of the building I entered by. If I some how manage to grow some hair on my balls, I may consider popping back to cover the rest of it.



BIP holds a unique place in the history of plastics, worldwide. Founded in 1894, it is the oldest polymer material manufacturer in the UK, by far, and amongst the oldest in the world. Its place in the history of plastics was assured when its chemists patented the world’s first ‘water-white’ thermoset resin in 1924.

By the mid-1950s, the extent and depth of BIP’s involvement in the plastics moulding industry was considerable and, without doubt, unique. Furthermore, its speciality resins took the company into aircraft manufacture, boat building, construction, iron foundries, the production of furniture and wood laminates, paint manufacture, paper treatment, textile finishing and building insulation. All this from a ”small, smelly pot shed” beside a canal in the English West Midlands.

The labs definitely do look nice, but to be fair I think you must have got the better parts in my opinion. Some pretty nice looking stuff, especially the control panel you’ve got there!

Nicely done mate! Went here a few weeks ago and came face to face with an employee through a door that was only open an inch or so when we were in the lab area. Can’t beleive we got away with that, very close one. Need to get back and see that boiler house, someone was working in there too as we discovered when we got close to it!

Yeh I think you missed the boat a bit, we only got round so much as it was Christmas shutdown but like clebby said just be patient and wait for more to close. It will I'm sure. Either that or just say fuck it and go for the live stuff, why stop here tho! There's plenty of live industry to have a mooch about lol..
