Advantages of Plastic Injection Molding in China

Our wholly-owned-and-operated plant in China

Our business office is in Ohio, so we’re easy to do business with, but our manufacturing plant is in China, where a lower cost structure allows us to provide lower pricing to our customers. In addition to lower pricing for plastic injection molding, there are other advantages in producing the injection molds and plastic parts for you in China.
Quality: There’s a perception of China being a low-quality, high-quantity supplier. In the 1950s, Japan had a reputation for mass-produced, cheap, but inferior, products. Thirty years later, they became known for quality, delivery and efficiency. China is undergoing that same transition, with companies like ICOMold leading the way in delivering high-quality products.
Management Practices: China is an economic powerhouse, and both the Harvard Business Review and the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Sloan Management Review published articles praising the modern management practices in China. “Chinese companies teach us management’s current imperatives: responsiveness, improvisation, flexibility and speed,” gushes an HBR article. “Chinese companies…are higher in energy and much more nimble than most Western corporations are.”
Expertise: The employees at our wholly-owned-and-operated Shenzhen, China plant are experts in plastic injection molding. Engineering, as a discipline, is structured a little differently in China. Students don’t just become “engineers” – they are trained very specifically in plastic injection molding. Shenzhen, where our plant is located, is an epicenter for plastic injection molding – our location is at the heart of the industry.
Work Ethic: Our employees in China are willing to work flexible hours, and they happily accept overtime. Having this flexibility allows us to complete projects very quickly and compete on speed with U.S. plants. Even with shipping time factored in, our turnaround time is faster than that of our competitors.
