Injection Molding Supplier
There are an endless number of industrial, commercial and household products that require plastic injection molded parts. If your company heavily depends on injection molding suppliers for components, then you already know how they directly impact the quality of your products.
Your high-quality plastic parts represent your brand and ultimately determine the success of your company, so you should do your due diligence when selecting an injection molding company to work with. There are several factors you should consider when choosing plastic molding suppliers.
Advantages of Working With a U.S. Supplier
Researching a potential injection molding supplier will inevitably require a comparison of U.S. versus offshore companies. There are several key advantages of choosing American plastic molding suppliers:
- Support for American jobs
- Better communication
- A mutual understanding of quality
- Improved cash flow
- Faster delivery times
- Lower freight costs
Contracting with a U.S. supplier protects American manufacturing jobs and supports the economy. It creates a need for ancillary jobs to sell, distribute, and use the products. Choosing domestic over offshore suppliers also helps other companies that pay U.S. taxes to support our communities, infrastructure, social programs, and more.
Lower delivery costs and faster lead times are another bonus of using a domestic supplier of high-quality molded plastic components. Many companies often overlook or underestimate the impact of shipping charges and unforeseen delays on the overall cost of offshore injection molded products. Faster communication from minimal time differences in the U.S. also contribute to a more seamless project.
Working with an American injection molding supplier also means improving cash flow for your business. Unlike offshore suppliers, U.S. injection molding companies offer traditional payment terms allowing you to pay for your custom parts 30 days after they ship. Additionally, due to faster delivery times and low freight costs, you can reduce inventory costs by taking smaller deliveries more frequently.
Key Differences Between a Good Supplier and a Bad One
Several key factors separate good plastic injection molding companies from bad ones, including but not limited to:
- Exceptional customer service
- In-house injection mold making
- Knowledge of thermoplastics and their recommended applications
- A focus on advanced quality planning
- Modern machinery and equipment
