Reed City Group - Engineering & Design Department

Capabilities

Tool and die experts since 1959

Our shop is best known for the large-scale hydraulic presses we build for garage door and steel shingle panel manufacturers, but the truth is these presses are only a part of our business. Reed City Group has been building injection molds since 1959. With a diverse facility, our experienced team can mold parts and build injection molds to nearly limitless specifications.

We handle every detail, too. Guided by journeymen moldmakers with decades of floor experience – including owners Rod Weck and Fred Youngs – the Reed City Group team provides a comprehensive range of mold and part processing skill sets, including in-house mold sampling, processing, product assembly, testing and even shipping.

  • Expert mold design team

  • Unigraphics CAD/CAM software

Tool and Die, Injection Molded Parts, Hydraulic Presses

Few tool and die shops offer the scale of manufacturing capabilities we have at Reed City Group because few shops have taken on the challenges we have. On one side of our business, we mold plastic parts and build molds for top tier manufacturers in the automotive, consumer and appliance markets. On the other side, we build custom hydraulic presses for garage door and steel shingle panel manufacturers. Our equipment, and our team’s expertise, are completely scalable.

From precision plastic parts to automated hydraulic presses, we have the equipment and savvy to get the job done right. And we stand behind our work.
