Providing flexibility to customer’s molds and secondary equipment

One of the best things about UPM is its flexibility in interfacing with customer supplied molds and equipment, integrating them into our existing manufacturing process. As rising fuel and shipping costs have now forced customers to seek partners in key geographical regions, we at UPM have the experienced personnel and equipment to interface almost any molds and secondary operation machinery into a specialized manufacturing program that meets the needs of our customers.

Walter Pipan, UPM’s Facility Manager states, “With our large maintenance crew, we are able to provide all phases of support to the customer as far as automation, electrical, and mechanical interfacing. We also know that we need to respond quickly and assess every job accurately in order to produce little or no downtime. This, along with UPM’s direct ship capability to major distribution centers, UPM provides our customers with a satellite manufacturing operation second to none in the western United States.”
