    plastics engineering vs. plastics processing

    Comment
    plastics engineering = Kunststofftechnik
    In der Branche wird angeblich dieser Begriff oft nur noch als reine Dienstleistung im Sinne von Entwicklungsleistungen gesehen. Mein Kunde möchte als Kunststoffverarbeiter mit einem Überbegriff als Haupttätigkeit aussagen, dass er auch in der Lage ist, v.a. Kunststoffteile zu produzieren. Angeblich impliziert dies 'plastics engineering' nicht. Auf die Schnelle habe ich vorgeschlagen, 'plastics processing' zu nehmen. Hat jemand Alternativen?

    Engineering has more to with how to get something one than the actual getting it one. Here I might say "plastic manufacturing" or "production" (depending on specific context).

    Plastics manufacturing (c/dude) and processing.

    I know the association 'German wood and plastics manufacturing industries (HDH)' and I get the impression that 'manufacturing' is more 'Kunststoffhersteller' (Rohstoffhersteller) than 'producer of plastic parts'.

    Sorry, my "d" was stuck in 1: done and done, not one.

    "Manufactured from/with recycled" materials is very common these days. Manufacture does not exclusively mean or involve raw materials.

    Many thanks so far.
    So I'd use 'plastics manufacturing/processing' for the getting it DONE and I'd use the 'engineering' stuff for explaining pure development/construction work on the paper.

    And now, I'm looking for a proper term to describe the company itself:
    plastic (trim) parts producer/maker/manufacturer
    or even plastics maker?
