Plastic Engineering in Tempe, Arizona is proud to announce new partnerships with injection molding and machining facilities in Mexico to provide customers with low-cost region competitive pricing.
Mexico manufacturing now stands as the number one cost-effective global option. According to recent studies, Mexico manufacturing cost savings today surpass those enjoyed by companies in both China and India. For example, in 2003 Mexican manufacturing workers made over twice what their Chinese counterparts did. Today the Mexico cost savings gap for direct labor has narrowed to 1.15 times.
Mexico’s low landed costs are attractive when considered in comparison to other developing country options. It is suited to serve as a manufacturing venue for short to medium-run products that have a high degree of engineered content. Its proximity to the United States enables technical and production personnel to coordinate activities to bridge temporal and physical distances.
Plastic Engineering is happy to announce this new partnership and hopes to be able to pass reduced production costs on to their fellow consumers.
This is the next step in Plastic Engineering’s expansion. Plastic Engineering recently announced the receipt of their newest Quality certification, the AS9100 Certification. This certification is given for establishing and maintaining precision manufacturing and quality control standards for the aerospace industry. This certification joins the ISO 9001:2008 Quality Certification, Plastic Engineering received for “Precision CNC machining of plastic and metal components, plastic injection molding, state of the art fabrication, plastic sheet rod and tube material distribution.” Plastic Engineering doesn't just talk about quality, they are certified to give the highest quality to every client and every project.
Not only has Plastic Engineering added more staff to their operations, they have also doubled their machining capabilities. They are excited to have added a new Doosan Puma 2100 SY to their production floor. This will help with cycle times and reduce potential operation cost. Plastic Engineering hopes to pass along these savings to aid in stretching the customer’s budget. A new online chat feature means customers have instant real time access to Plastic Engineering for questions and comments about their project.
Plastic Engineering has also launched a new website, GotFOD.com, which is dedicated to all types of FOD (Foreign Object Damage) products. FOD costs the aviation industry between three and four billion dollars annually, and the solutions offered by Plastic Engineering can potentially save a company millions of dollars.
