When you’re looking for a company to complete your business’ custom molding projects, how do you know the best one to choose? These types of projects are highly specialized and so a service team that can create products that meet your needs are key. Here are some qualities of the best plastic molding companies.
- Does the molding company have an awareness of the industry best practices in molding? Will they understand how to process the resin that I have selected? Do they understand the machine settings required based on the selections that you’ve made?
- What type of training program does your potential business partner have for its employees?
- Take a walk-through of the potential molder’s facilities. Is the molding house clean? Are scrap grinders maintained in order to prevent contamination? How are materials handled throughout the process?
- What type of relationship do you have with your potential business partner? Are they responsive to your needs? Do they provide regular updates on the status of your project? Do they work with you to ensure they understand your needs or believe they know the best way for things to be completed?
- Do they have a reputation of doing good business and providing quality products? Are they well known in the industry for their good business practices? Ask for a referral from other clients. A happy (or unhappy) customer can be the best source of information regarding the quality of service.
- Does the company run multiple shifts to ensure that resources are available in the case of tight deadlines?
- Does the company offer techniques outside of molding? If you have an upcoming project that requires other techniques, would they be able to handle the project?
You’re going to be using their finished product to provide to your own customers and clients. You want to ensure that you have high-quality items that won’t fail when once they are put to use.
