MOLDing Starts with an Injection Mold

Plastic Injection Molding, regardless of where you have it done, what company you use to do it, what material you use, or what your end product is all starts with one thing…a mold. Often it can be a very expensive mold. You can decide to pay the cost of the plastic injection mold upfront or you can amortize the cost of the plastic injection mold into the cost of the molding. Either way the plastic injection mold matters.

Injection Mold Costs

Whether you are in (pick your state) and you are competing with companies across the street or across the country the cost of the plastic injection mold can make the difference between winning and losing the business or building your product competitively. Certainly labor costs play a part but so much of the molding is automated that the labor cost is less of a factor then it is in the plastic injection mold which is heavily influenced by labor costs. So while the labor cost on molding will see some difference between states with different costs of livings, the biggest impact on your competitive strategy could be where you buy that plastic injection mold.

China Injection Mold Manufacturer

This is why you should always consider China. Labor costs are where China always shines. We have been doing business with China long enough now that we understand how they work and how we need to manage the process. If you do your due diligence and find the right manufacturer you will find a manufacture that can provide a cost effective quality plastic injection mold. Give it the same consideration you give finding a manufacture here in the United States. If you do it can separate you from the competitive pack.
