The Benefits of a Manufacturer With Plastic Injection Mold Building Capabilities

Businesses are always looking for ways to lower manufacturing costs and shorten turnaround times. One way they can accomplish these savings is by partnering with a manufacturer that can perform plastic injection mold building.

There are many ways in which in-house plastic injection mold building can benefit customers. From reducing transit times to offering higher quality products, let’s explore each of these advantages.

Shortened Turnaround Times

When manufacturers do not have in-house tooling or mold building capabilities, they have to outsource these services, making turnaround times significantly longer. Between additional transit times, manufacturing, and the potential for errors, outsourcing is costly in many ways.

Manufacturers that invest in their in-house tooling and plastic injection mold building can offer their clients lower costs and shorter turnaround times. There are no extra transit costs and customers can work closely with their manufacturer to ensure the mold comes out just right.

Lower Costs

It can be tempting to outsource your tooling and mold builds to low-cost countries to save money on manufacturing costs. However, it can be more expensive in the long run than working with a trusted domestic manufacturer. You will be spending a significant amount of money on transit and you risk receiving a low-quality product. With so much distance between you and your manufacturer, it is easy for important details to be overlooked, and quality control simply is not as good.

Transportation isn’t the only hidden cost with offshore tooling. Molds that are created overseas can be extremely difficult to run, making the manufacturing process much more expensive. Repairs on these molds are also very challenging, making it very expensive.

A domestic manufacturer with in-house tooling and plastic injection mold building ensures that you have regular communication about the status of your product. And, without worrying about international shipping, you can rest assured that you will receive a quality product at a lower price.

Your Manufacturer Will Own the Process

When your manufacturer builds your molds, they own the entire process. This simplifies the debugging of a new project, allowing for any necessary modifications to the mold design and any necessary repairs.

Quality Products

Working with a manufacturer with in-house tooling capabilities allows you to work closely with their team to ensure your products meet all of your standards. For example, when partnering with Port Erie Plastics, you will work with one of our engineers for any project you may have. We can source alternative resins for you, or rework your designs to make them easier to manufacture. This way, you have the peace of mind that your product will be of the highest quality and produced in the most efficient way possible.


In-house plastic injection mold building allows consumers to work closely with engineers to make changes and improvements to their molds and tooling easily. These changes can take place immediately, without the need to wait for delayed communication to occur, transit times, or extra costs.
