When looking for a manufacturer that will provide you with quality, savings, and a quick turnaround, it’s essential to consider the location of your facility. While many companies are moving overseas in search of cheaper production and labor costs, it often pays to keep your company based right here in the United States. In fact, there are numerous benefits to choosing a manufacturer based in the United States over those found abroad––, especially in the long run. Below, we discuss seven of the main advantages.
Like many companies, The Rodon Group recognizes our customers are our most valuable asset. We pride ourselves on the ability to develop turnkey manufacturing solutions that meet their demands on time, every time.
So it is no surprise that we utilize an ERP system (Enterprise Resource Planning system) to improve our efficiency and our customer’s bottom line. This tool allows the manufacturing team at Rodon to monitor jobs from the minute they are initiated to the time they are delivered including all of the downstream impacts. According to VP of Manufacturing, Tom Moore “The team manages to our customer's requirements. By monitoring production runs throughout the day, we can ensure the needs of the customers are met. We manage the efficiency of each job. These measures ensure we always have the materials and products required.”
Given the high quality and quick turnaround most organizations require when producing custom plastic components, it’s best to consider working with a full team of injection molding experts. Tackling the challenge in-house often leads to inefficiencies and can result in costly, time-consuming issues despite best efforts to streamline processes.
With hundreds of commodity and engineering resins available on today’s market, the material selection process for plastic injection molding may seem daunting at first.
At The Rodon Group, we understand the unique benefits and properties offered by different types of plastics, and work closely with clients to find the best fit for their project.
Below are some of the most popular materials used in plastic injection molding:
ISO 9001 is an international standard that specifies requirements for companies’ quality management systems. The national standards bodies of more than 160 countries comprise the International Organization for Standardization (ISO), and more than 1 million organizations across the world have applied ISO 9001 requirements to their management systems.
There are several key elements that are essential for creating the perfect plastic part. At The Rodon Group, our dedicated team of plastic injection molding experts fully understands what it takes to create high-performing, reliable components, and, unlike most other companies, we pride ourselves on being a complete turnkey precision component manufacturer, designing and tooling all parts in-house and carefully overseeing every step of the production process.
Earth Day, observed each year on April 22, serves as a celebration of the birth of the modern environmental movement. Started in 1970, Earth Day was sparked by the country’s burgeoning understanding of how contemporary industrial practices were negatively impacting the environment. The celebration was designed to bring awareness to many of the dangers affecting the environment — air pollution, water contamination, habitat destruction, and so on — and to encourage people to take action in protecting their surroundings.
In today’s ever-evolving world of manufacturing, plastics are being used to make everything from automotive body parts to synthetic human body parts. To create critical components and ensure optimal performance, many manufacturers choose to make use of plastic injection molding.
Manufacturing high-quality custom parts requires a full team of experienced professionals; design and engineering, tooling, troubleshooting, quality control, packing, and shipping service providers must all be vetted and sourced, and communication among different vendors must be facilitated and organized. Working with a turnkey manufacturer eliminates these stressors, allowing for a complete, and one-stop manufacturing solution from an experienced contractor.
