Why You Should Choose UPM Inc as Your Custom Manufacturer of Plastic Molding ProductsWith the global market for plastic molding growing at 6 percent annually, there’s an increasing number of plastic mold manufacturers to choose from. This is good for consumers because it makes for a more competitive marketplace. It also creates the challenge of deciding how to choose one plastic mold company over another. With so many providers to choose from, how do you decide which one to go with? Here are some of the reasons that Universal Plastic Mold stands out from other plastic mold companies.


Experience is one of the things that sets our plastic injection molding services apart from other plastic mold companies. We’ve been in the plastic molding business for 56 years. This gives us a knowledge base and familiarity with the industry that newer plastic mold manufacturers don’t have. We know from experience which materials to select for optimal results, which processes work best, what operational procedures yield maximum production efficiency, and what mistakes to avoid. We know which suppliers, distributors, and logistics providers to work with, and which ones to steer clear of.

We put our experience and resources at the service of our customers, helping you make sure your project gets done right and on time. Our expertise helps you avoid the mistakes, delays, and extra expenses that can result from going with a less experienced plastic mold company.


Quality is another point of distinction that sets our brand apart. Throughout our half-century of operation, we’ve prioritized providing our customers with the highest-quality plastic injection molding services. To ensure best-in-class production, our quality management system has been certified by an independent registrarto meet the high bar set by the International Organization for Standardization. We are fully ISO 9001:2008-certified and ISO/TS 16949-compliant. We also keep all our plastic molding in-house so we can directly supervise our quality control.

Our high standards of quality control translate into the best results for our clients. We work closely with each of our customers to determine exactly what their project requires and to thoroughly review their goals and specifications before we start production. We have staff on hand 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year to make sure our products and our service meet the quality standards our clients expect.


Cost-efficiency is another quality that makes us a smart choice. Unlike many plastic mold companies, we do our injection molding in-house, which enables us to keep out costs down. Companies that outsource their plastic molding are trying to save on equipment costs, which is efficient for them because they do molding on a small scale. But since our specialty is plastic injection molding, we do it at scale. Because of the volume we handle, it ends up being more cost-efficient for us to buy our own equipment and invest in our own in-house workforce. We then pass the savings on to our customers, combining affordability with top-of-the-line quality.

To maximize their savings, many of our clients deploy dual-production, manufacturing small subcomponents overseas while we manufacture large components. Thanks to our ideal shipping location near the ports of Los Angeles and Long Beach, we are perfectly-positioned to receive and unload overseas shipping containers for our customers. Overseas shipping containers can pack many small subcomponent units at a low landed cost. To keep landed costs on large components low, we use lean manufacturing methods. Through this dual approach, we have been able to deliver many of our Fortune 500 clients lower landed costs than they could find overseas. Whether your concern is cost, quality, or experience, Universal Plastic Mold is the smart choice for your plastic molding needs.
