The automotive industry is our largest market at Elite Mold & Engineering. We have been an automotive supplier of injection molds and injection molded parts for over 32 years. Through the years, we have seen many different automotive plastic parts. Some of the parts we have been able to specialize in are instrument panels/clusters, overhead consoles, airbag covers, and electronic components.

We are a Tier 2 supplier that works with mainly Tier 1 companies and on OEM-directed work. Our close proximity to Metro Detroit allows us to meet with many of the Tier 1 and OEM suppliers on a weekly basis to discuss any current automotive projects. Elite’s highly skilled engineering department is able to utilize design for manufacturing knowledge to ensure high-quality automotive plastic parts. With our expertise, we can guarantee a quality mold built to fit your needs in the fastest possible lead time.

Tooling - Injection Molds

Our tooling department is what our company was founded on. We take pride in our ability to provide plastic injection molds that produce high-quality plastic parts. By utilizing aluminum and softer steels we are able to meet even the tightest of project timelines. Elite’s tooling and engineering department will work side by side with your team to ensure the best mold for the job. We can provide design-for-manufacturing and mold flow analysis to give you an idea of what the tool will produce. Along with projects involving new tooling, we also have the capability to make any engineering changes in-house if necessary. We are also able to review customer-specific tooling requirements and make sure we build a mold to fit your press if you just want us to qualify the mold and ship it to your facility.
