Action Mold’s Custom Molding

_MG_0089_Final4review_600You and your engineering team need to know exact resin and equipment specifications (and more) before you can begin to consider design parameters. You need a partner with significant experience molding plastic resins and building quality tooling, one you’ll be confident in recommending to your purchasing department.

Or perhaps you’re a purchasing agent querying cost-effective vendors for upcoming projects. You need an ISO 13485:2003 or ISO 9001:2008 certified supplier who can support a range of molding services to bring back to your purchasing team.

Or maybe you represent a design house or you’re an inventor at a startup, ready to make a big play in the market. Your design is right and your business plan sound, but before you can move forward, you need the guidance of seasoned veterans and a molding team that can execute on the shop floor.

Regardless of where you stand in the design to purchasing chain, at Action Mold we have the answers, expertise, and experience you need to reach efficient and cost-effective solutions to your projects.
