Manufacturers are always looking for practical ways to streamline product design, engineering and production, which leads many to supplier consolidation.
This is particularly true in the case of custom injection molding, where working with a single injection molding supplier that possesses the expertise and capabilities to meet your needs reduces development time and associated costs, improves logistics, and optimizes processes.
Aren't all injection moldING SUPPLIERs the same?
Most plastic injection molding suppliers concentrate on one or two technologies and processes, such as traditional molding, scientific molding, insert molding, or overmolding. All of these processes have similarities, but each has unique differences that require specialized equipment and knowledge.
While rare, there are custom injection molders that offer wide-ranging expertise — meaning, they have the in-house capabilities to tackle any injection molding challenge. Their versatility and depth of knowledge helps you circumvent the risk to product quality and the possible cost run-up introduced by third-party outsourcing. It also prevents potential vendor lock-in that could leave you struggling with a difficult and costly supplier relationship.
Is supplier consolidation worth it?
