When it comes to choosing a manufacturer, cost is often the most influential deciding factor. Many overseas companies appear to offer “lower” costs up front, causing companies to outsource their manufacturing. However, the “lower” cost of overseas manufacturing often turns out to be anything but, which has led to a resurgence in “reshoring,” or choosing domestic manufacturing.. There are 4 benefits of choosing a plastic injection molding company in the USA that have a big impact on your bottom line:
- Improved customer service – Juggling time zones and figuring out when to place calls is an unnecessary hassle. It is far easier to conduct business with a company that is in your same time zone or only a couple hours removed. Also, with a US-based plastic injection molding company, you can be certain that you will reach a company employee, not some middleman. Speaking to an actual, knowledgeable employee who can get you an answer quickly is priceless.
- Faster shipping at a lower cost – It is much cheaper – and faster – to ship domestically. Shipping prices are generally calculated on distance, so it only makes sense that the farther something has to travel the more it will cost and the longer it will take. Overseas shipping also leaves greater room for errors, delays, and problems.
- Greater flexibility – They are facts of life: mistakes happen, and customers change their minds. Accidentally sent the wrong specs? Realize belatedly that you need a design change? These can easily be corrected with a simple phone call. But if you’re dealing with an overseas company, you may not be able to get a hold of them until it is too late. You shouldn’t have to jump through hoops to reach someone who can actually modify your order. With a local company, you can get a hold of someone quickly and ask for modifications.
- U.S. plastic injection molding companies have higher standards of safety and quality control – American regulations for both safety and quality are much stricter than those overseas, protecting both employees and customers. How often do you see children’s toys that were manufactured overseas being recalled because they were discovered to be toxic or unsafe? At Proto-Cast, we have strict quality guidelines that we follow to ensure employee safety and customer satisfaction.
