Manufacturing plastic injection molded components in-house as part of a customer’s end product can prove to be a significant challenge from an efficiency, quality, and cost perspective. Many companies have seen the relative ease with outsourcing and have decided to incorporate that process into their business model. Over the years, Rodon has garnered many of our largest customers who were doing their best to manufacture their injection molded components in-house, but found the process too problematic and inefficient.

When creating components for medical and pharmaceutical devices, manufacturers must meet extremely high standards of quality. Since medical equipment and devices directly affect the health and safety of users, parts are subject to stringent regulatory standards for material quality, precision, and traceability.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to devastate global supply chains, many businesses have begun reshoring their operations. This trend is particularly prevalent in manufacturing, although reshoring rates have started to rise throughout the industrial sector in recent weeks. In fact, the Thomas Industrial Survey for April found that 64% of manufacturers are now considering reshoring, compared to only 54% who were thinking about reshoring in March.
As we've progressed from revolutionary inventions such as the light bulb on to the telecommunications age of the radio, phones, and televisions, the methods of manufacturing and product design have evolved as well. Computers, the internet, sustainable power, and everything that comes next is the driving force behind the advances in modern moldmaking in manufacturing. To understand where we are going, however, we must look at how we got here.
While plastic has been used to create a vast number of consumer products, the material’s potential uses expand far beyond children’s toys or storage containers. Today, industry experts rely on plastics to create everything from automotive parts to synthetic human body parts.
At The Rodon Group, we're proud of how far we've come in more than 60 years as a company and it's fun to look back and see the growth and change. We wanted to share that with you, so on October 10 we hosted a company video shoot to give you an inside look at our expansive facility, sustainability efforts, experienced employees, and long history.
For over six decades, The Rodon Group has provided innovative manufacturing solutions for a wide range of industrial applications. As an ISO 9001:2015 certified plastic injection molder, we offer high-quality custom parts in high volumes and at low costs to clients in the following industries:
A mold is a hollow form typically made from stainless steel that has plastic injected into it to manufacture a plastic part. The plastic is inserted into the mold cavity, which is a hole in the mold shaped like the desired part. Molds are only used in mass production because of the cost involved in designing and manufacturing them. Because molds are critical to the production process, it is essential they are accurately made.
Manufacturers across the country benefit from sourcing plastic injection-molded parts from a high-quality turnkey manufacturer. On this page, we discuss a few of the best practices regarding the plastic part acquisition process, as well as some of the design possibilities you can achieve when working with a trusted turnkey plastic injection molder.
