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

Market discipline

By taking the financial costs of injection moulding off your plate, this provides the perfect opportunity for your business to focus company payroll and resources on growing your market share. You can spend more time strengthening customer relationships and upskilling your employees.


By outsourcing your injection moulding services, you gain access to state-of-the-art technologies that will affect the outcome of the parts produced. This is good news because better technology operated by skilled individuals will produce better quality components for your part and you need these components to be compatible with the overall product.

Greater confidence

By putting your injection moulding services in capable hands you help to eliminate any uncertainty and anxiety related to the quality of the parts you produce especially if injection moulding is not your core competency. By handpicking an expert with a track record of excellence you will have greater confidence in all aspects of the product you produce for your client not just the components that are your specialty.
