(Part 1) What should I consider when choosing a plastic injection moulder?
5 factors to think about if you need a plastic injection moulder
Choosing a plastic injection moulding company should be no different from selecting any other supplier that is crucial to your business. Here are five questions you should ask before choosing a plastic injection moulder.
Do they have a good reputation?
Fundamentally, you need to be confident that your chosen plastic injection moulding partner will be able to meet your expectations, in both the short and long term. This decision will be based on a range of factors, of which reputation is perhaps the starting point.
At OGM, we have been a specialised plastic injection moulder for over fifty years. In that time, we have worked with many of the world’s leading companies, building a wealth of knowledge and experience in all aspects of plastic injection moulding techniques, materials and processes.
Talk to any of our customers, many of which have worked for us for years, and they’ll tell you that we have an outstanding reputation.
Can I trust them?
Our reputation as a leading plastic injection moulding company is built on the lengths to which we go to develop a strong and lasting partnership with every customer, no matter how simple or complex their requirements.
We work hard to solve each customer’s plastic injection moulding, design and production challenges, developing solutions that help them improve part quality, reduce unit costs and increase productivity.
Creating a position of trust takes time and commitment. But becoming a trusted plastic moulding partner allows us to truly understand our customers’ businesses and to exceed their expectations time after time.
Do they have the right plastic injection moulding capability?
A solid reputation counts for little if you don’t have the plastic moulding facilities and services to be able to deliver what customers require.
