More and more domestic customers are onshoring their injection molding services in 2023, opting to choose quality-backed American providers like Elite Mold and Engineering – serving the local Michigan region and beyond since 1982.
The reshoring trend is partly due to ongoing disruptions throughout the global supply chain, as well as prohibitive international shipping costs/logistics. However, a huge factor is simply customers’ desire to work with an experienced American injection molding company that offers guaranteed quality, consistency, and responsive customer service for their products.
4 Advantages of Onshoring Your Injection Molding Services Locally
A Simplified Supply Chain That’s More Robust and Reliable
Partnering with a local plastic injection molding company will help you save substantial shipping costs. However, the true benefit goes beyond your bottom line – a streamlined, more robust supply chain. Local onshoring gives you a quicker, more reliable source for your products, ensuring long-term accessibility without the logistical headaches of overseas sourcing and shipping.
Better Communication and Collaboration for Your Project
Successful custom injection molding projects are built upon efficient, responsive communication between the customer and manufacturer. Working with a Michigan-based injection molding company allows for in-person collaboration and in-house inspection of the production process. Moreover, even for domestic customers that aren’t exactly local, partnering with an American manufacturer tends to facilitate much better communication and collaboration when compared to outsourcing to overseas providers.
A Leaner Manufacturing Process That Is Highly Customizable
Our complete in-house injection molding capabilities facilitate a leaner, more efficient and streamlined manufacturing process. That equals less overall waste and better sustainability for your products – especially when compared to sprawling overseas manufacturing networks which are far from optimized.
The other benefit of our full-service capabilities is more customization and accommodation for your project. From prototyping and design for manufacturability (DFM) to material optimization, we’re able to modify our production processes to better serve each unique product.
Better Quality Control Backed by Accountability and Traceability
Working with a local Michigan-based manufacturer gives you better control over the quality of the finished products, along with complete traceability of every step in the process. Furthermore, the quality certifications held by experienced American injection molding companies help ensure superior results with higher consistency. Elite Mold is an ISO 9001:2015 certified injection molder, in addition to being an ITAR registered domestic manufacturer committed to quality and service throughout the total manufacturing process.
