Now Serving Plastic Mold Repair & Maintenance Needs!

If you’re familiar with our company, you know that Universal Plastic Mold has provided plastic injection molding, water injection molding, tooling and fabrication, assembly, logistics, and more to a diverse array of customers nationwide for over 50 years. We’ve been in the business of production for a long time, but we began to notice a service our customers were requesting: repair, maintenance, and modification needs for existing molds. Thanks to our highly capable tool room, we’re able to easily handle our own mold repair and maintenance needs, but it became obvious that more and more customers were looking for a reliable partner for this service as well.

That’s why we’re happy to announce that UPM officially provides plastic mold repair, maintenance, and alteration as a new service now. Under this service, we provide unique capabilities that allow us to turn around high-quality results with expert precision, and our process couldn’t be easier. When a customer comes to us with a need, we carefully craft a strategy before giving a quote and turnaround time. Then, we get to work, handling everything in house, until the exact requested specifications are met. We’ve already helped many businesses who make plastics and may have their own tool room, but lack the time or capacity┬ánecessary to perform engineering changes or repairs. UPM takes this need off your hands. See what we’re able to provide below.

Plastic Mold Repair & Modification Capabilities

If you’re in need of repair, maintenance, or modifications┬ábut don’t require production, UPM can get the job done in just a few, hassle-free steps. We’ll discuss your problem and come up with a strategy for its solution before given you a detailed quote and turnaround time. We’ll complete the request and sample the mold in house for quality assurance, at which point we can make further alterations if needed. Customers are also welcome to sample molds themselves.
