Lewiston, MN February 5, 2013 – PlastiCert, a 31 year veteran of innovative and quality plastic injection molding design and manufacturing services, announces its largest month of business ever in its mold design and build group.
In the month of December, PlastiCert launched and completed a level of mold design and build that resulted in the largest revenue month ever. The revenue billed in December was over 50% higher than previous record. Spread across multiple long stand customers, the mold projects ranged from large to small, single cavity to multi-cavity over-mold designs. Adding to that mark, January proved to be the second largest revenue month for the Mold Group at PlastiCert.
“Our recent upgrade and training time on the latest version of SolidWorks really helped us pull this off, “ commented Dean Rupprecht, Principle Mold Designer and Tooling Manager. “That plus some strategic supplier partnerships and a little overtime and we managed it pretty well”. PlastiCert prides itself with working closely with its partner customers on developing their part designs. This results in us simultaneously streamlining the mold design, reducing the mold overall cost and reducing the cost of the component part itself. Also providing a pathway to success is having both mold design and the injection molding both under one roof. “Aside from having the production input during mold design and development, we’re also standing there when the mold is sampled and running first production, remarked Rupprecht.” “It hits a little closer to home when it is your friends and co-workers handling and running the mold. When that mold opens the first time with its first part, they look over their shoulder and we’re standing there. I want there to be a smile on their face!”
