Seeking Sourcing Solutions in Challenging Times Brought on by Coronavirus?
If you are seeking a solution or offering a solution as manufacturing continues to move despite the coronavirus then check out details about our online supplier database and sourcing assistance program.
Various shops have reached out to me online, on the phone and via social media asking how they can be connected with manufacturers looking for North American mold builders to keep manufacturing moving, and OEMs have also reached out looking for mold builders and molders to take on some projects.
This got us thinking. We have the audience (community) comprising all links in the supply chain, so we just need to find a way to bring them all together (connection) if and when projects, capabilities and timelines align. We want to help!
On top of that, we are bringing back our Amerimold Sourcing Fair this June 10 & 11 in Novi, Michigan. Today OEMs, molders and mold builders can participate for FREE. Find out more and sign up here: https://www.amerimoldexpo.com/sourcingfair.html
Due to more immediate sourcing demands, we are working on a virtual sourcing fair of sorts to help companies with more immediate sourcing needs to keep manufacturing moving.
We want to be a resource that connects the supply chain – manufacturers (OEMs) looking for service suppliers and service suppliers (mold builders and molders) with capacity and capabilities looking to take on more work.
For example, just last week a consumer goods OEM approached us with the need for a moldmaker or injection molder who can be a production partner on 8-10 molds depending on components and molds; and, 250,000 to 2 million injection molded units / SKU for a plastics toy project.
If you are interested in submitting a quote for moldmaking and/or injection molding please review the brief project form and complete and submit the contact form.

MoldMaking Technology’s Christina Fuges chats with some of the Haidlmair team—CEO Mario Haidlmair, Head of Corporate Communications Peter Peschl (Austria) and COO/Sales for Haidlmair NA Angelo Morra (Canada)—about a reusable mask project to help fight COVID-19 as well as the role of digital molds today.
It’s always been about community and connection for me when it comes to MoldMaking Technology, but this has taken on a whole new meaning with the current state of affairs. However, I see opportunity—and a chance for us to provide more value to the industry.
Mold manufacturers who have been critiqued for slow lead times, as compared to the overseas competition, are proving to themselves and customers during COVID-19 that North American mold manufacturers and suppliers can unite and do things at an extraordinary speed.
