Our owner, Linda Katz, was recently featured on Rubber & Plastics News discussing the growth opportunities for polyurethanes. Here’s what she said:
“She describes the business as stable, and many of the customers have been ordering the same parts
for 20 or more years. They have also been putting a huge focus on improving efficiency in recent years, by driving out variation, making production easier for workers, and getting rid of scrap.
‘We’re really proud of our new product introduction process,’ she said. ‘When someone comes to us with a print, we aim to roll it out first time.’
The timescale will vary on the part’s complexity, but 10 to 12 weeks is normal, and she said that six to eight weeks can be possible. Reorders typically take four weeks, but for some companies they will hold inventory of cast parts so they are ready to ship.
With Molded Dimensions having been there at the start of PMA, it’s perhaps unsurprising that Katz soon got involved herself.
‘We feel really strongly that our industry is very collaborative,’ she said. This was evident at the Vancouver meeting. ‘On my table at breakfast, two companies were discussing a problem one of them was having with cleaning a particular type of mold—they were happy to flat-out share what they do.'”
