What Is Injection Molding?

Injection molding is the most commonly used method for producing higher volumes of plastic parts.

We employ offshore production with US-based project management and quality assurance for efficient, cost-effective tooling and injection molding operations.

Rapid Delivery of Injection Molded Parts
Need low-volume parts quickly? Depending on your project requirements, our Fast Track injection molding can deliver parts in as little as ten days.

U.S. Based Injection Molding Project Management
Work directly with an experienced team, dedicated to delivering your parts in your timeline.

By providing a mold-build schedule and regular project updates, you can depend on timely production with globally competitive pricing.

Injection Molding Production Capabilities
Access cutting-edge tooling manufacturing facilities, including high-speed CNC machines, EDM machines and press sizes up to 800 tons.

These precise tooling operations complement our state-of-the-art injection molding capabilities.

Injection Molding Solutions Across Product Development

For new design verification utilizing our prototyping to production services in our state of the art facilities, we aim to provide end to end product development life cycle solutions.

Injection molding is an ideal alternative to 3D printing for parts at a better cost per piece and in materials not available in 3D printing.

Injection Molding Benefits


Produce high volumes of consistent production parts with near-limitless plastic material options.


Our proprietary tooling methods allow us to deliver low-volumes of parts within one to two weeks.


Get precise, repeatable parts throughout large production at the quality you expect.
