Manufacturing plastic injection moulded components, as part of a customer’s end product, in-house can be quite challenging from an efficiency, quality and cost perspective. This is where outsourcing your injection moulding services can come in handy.

There are many advantages to outsourcing your injection moulding services and in this two-part post we’ll look at six of the most popular.

Financial benefits

Producing plastic components of high-quality at a competitive cost is a constant challenge. Whatever products you manufacture, the injection moulded component of your product can easily prove to be the challenge that ultimately makes your end product uncompetitive from a pricing standpoint among other things.  Outsourcing can improve your bottom line by reducing or eliminating assets and increased cash flow.

Strategic optimisation

If injection moulding is not your core mission, then outsourcing this task to someone who specialises in injection moulding can help you focus on your core mission. It also allows you to allocate your time, operations and resources to more profitable activities.  With one less thing to worry about in-house you can focus on developing the areas of your business that really matter.

Better supply chain management

If you aren’t an industry leader in injection moulding, it’s probably better to let someone who is produce the components you need for your customer parts. That way you have more confidence in the part that you’re delivering for the client because you know that each component was produced by someone, handpicked by you, who is well versed in the specific field required to produce the part.
