Injection Mold Manufacturer
8 Palatine Street, Calamvale QLD 4116
DescriptionFor GM, their growing manufaturing and sales base in China trumped all short term costs. The real goal was to develop the local manufacturing base in China, then do car assembly,until an entire car can be engineered, sourced and built there. This makes sense longterm, but the short term plan was to import the parts back into the US for assembly here, and the near term costs were simply overwhelming.

Our company quoted building a tool 2 weeks ago and our price was $32,000 when the China price came in they were only $4,000 less (this was specifying that they use the same quality components as us). By the time you add on shipping you jump another $2,000-$3,000. In addition to the shipping you have time delays in communication, proper communication, hoping they do everything correct, shipping time, etc, etc... The inherent costs are ridiculous. Companies do not consider this, they simply look at mold cost to mold cost. It doesn't make sense and I am glad that some are finally figuring that out.
Cost versus price is always something that has to be fully detailed and documented in order for a true comparison to be made. And Tas has an interesting point, he has an American partner. Is this the OEM, or a broker, or another tooler? I am interested in what Tas finds works best for his firm and for the users of the mold in his opinion. A few short years back, we saw molds being brokered overseas, but now that is rarer, usually American firms have sister/partner firms or a plant located in China nowadays.
