We are taught to have the 30 second elevator speech prepared. To communicate who PlastiCert is, what services we provide and how we can benefit a company. For years I opened with our being a plastic injection molder. Recently, I’ve changed that to a description lest often heard. More accurately, we are a composites injection molder.
The landscape is lousy with plastic injection molders, from the Twin Cities, following the rust belt through Wisconsin, around Chicago and past Indiana and into Pennsylvania. PlastiCert has very little in common with the vast majority of those molders for two simple reasons.
The first is that we excel at small and medium volume production runs. I’ve been quoted as “hating high volume production opportunities”. It’s true, send me an inquiry trying to get my attention claiming that the part volumes will be in the millions and I will reply “not interested”.
Secondly, the vast majority of the components we mold are made using engineered resins, or composites. We excel at molding parts with difficult processes; high temperature, insert molding, over molding, and/or a combination of any/all of those. Avionics, military and marine telecom, industrial, agricultural; the difficult environmental requirement OEMs come to us.
So next time you see me, I should be rid of the stutter and clearly respond to “who is PlastiCert”? We’re a Composites Injection Molder, specializing in low to medium volume, difficult to mold composite parts. We speed your time to market through knowledgeable and efficient mold design and build, engineered sampling and then maintaining a quality production flow.
Have a difficult part? Give us a call or email. After almost 40 years we’ve likely seen the issue before.
