Injection mold building, production and prototype
Experienced, quality workmanship meets efficiency
A company originally founded on mold building services, Reed City Group is uniquely equipped to build high quality, precision molds for a nearly limitless spectrum of injection molded plastic parts. We specialize in high quality plastic injection mold building, with on-time deliveries.
Our team of mold makers and machinists are highly skilled in the entire production process, from mold design to full tryout and in-house sampling. We maintain superior workmanship and attention to detail, and our processes combine old-world craftsmanship with the latest machining technology.
We also provide responsive, professional service, from the initial design concept to long after the mold has been in service. Our Project Engineers have strong backgrounds in machining, mold making, automotive markets and the injection molding process, so they have the experience to give customers exactly what they need.
Projects run smoothly at Reed City Group. Our Sales Program Managers streamline customer requests and ensure specifications are clearly understood by the mold build department. Jobs are carefully tracked and timelines are kept, ensuring projects are completed on time and on budget. After the project is complete, our team provides responsive repair and support.
