Background

We are said to be living in an era of Plastics since 1974, as the world consumption of plastics from that year onward exceeded that of steel by volume! From household appliances to airplanes, from tooth brushes to telephones, from Computers to cars, everything seems to be made out of plastics these days. The reasons are not far to seek. Injection molded plastic parts offer unbeatable combination of Light Weight Construction, Flexibility, Toughness, Chemical Resistance, Long-term Performance and Cost Effectiveness. World Class Injection Moldings are a result of Knowledge of Plastics, Excellent Part Design, Robust Mold Design, Methodical Mold Manufacture, Optimum Process Parameters and Reliable Molding Machine.
