What is fair investing weather today could be a nasty stock market squall tomorrow, and investors would do well to bank on resilient stocks able to weather such storms as they come. Plastic mould and injection company, Sunningdale Tech demonstrates such elasticity, as recent developments point to an ability to shine in spite of overcast economic conditions.

Established in 1984, Sunningdale is engaged in providing a one-stop turnkey plastic solutions, with capabilities ranging from product & mould designs, mould fabrication, injection moulding, micro-precision engineering, complementary finishings, through to the precision assembly of complete products.

The Group is mainly focused on four operating segments: Automotive, Consumer/IT, Healthcare, and Mould Fabrication. Each segment has contributed 36%, 40%, 7% and 17%, respectively, to its 2016 fiscal year sales.

The Automotive segment produces faceplates for automotive audio systems and other car parts and accessories; while the Healthcare division produces scoops, caps, and drug delivery and diagnostic devices. The Consumer/IT segment manufactures mobile phones, inkjet cartridges and other telecom and consumer products; while Mould Fabrication designs and manufactures moulds used for plastic injection parts.

The rising Sun
Sunningdale Tech Ltd. is a globally recognised plastic products manufacturer with over 20 years of operations and manufacturing facilities in nine countries, which include China, Hong Kong, Brazil, and Mexico.

Based on a DBS Research Report, the Group’s competitive advantages lie in its advanced manufacturing capabilities, global manufacturing footprint, and scale. The Group also stands out for its diversified customer base — majority of its customers contribute between 3–5% each to group sales, which greatly reduces customer concentration risk commonly seen among small-mid cap peers.

Sunningdale is a beneficiary of the broad-based substitution for functional plastics and positive underlying trends in Automotive, Consumer/IT and Healthcare sectors.

Given its track record and strong business fundamentals, it is believed that Sunningdale is well-positioned to take on complex projects that may surface across the Automotive, Consumer/IT and Healthcare space to deliver further growth.
