First American Plastics, Top Injection Molding Company, Featured in Spring 2010 Issue of Manufacturing Today

Leading plastic injection molding company, First American Plastics, is highlighted in manufacturing industry magazine for its continued growth and sustainable business approach

South Beloit, ILL. – First American Plastic Molding Enterprise, a leading plastic injection molding company, announces its feature in the spring 2010 issue of top industry magazine Manufacturing Today. First American Plastics specializes in plastic injection molding, a specialized service that produces plastic parts used on a day-to-day basis. From plastic spoons to automotive speaker components, the company is dedicated to maintaining a continually improved process that delivers quality results every time.

The Manufacturing Today story covers First American Plastics’ approach to remaining profitable in a challenging global economy, from continued communication with overseas partners to its focus on employee education and environmentally-friendly solutions.

“The First American Plastics team is thrilled to be featured in Manufacturing Today. We take pride in our cost-effective approach to delivering our services. While other companies are moving their production overseas to help cut costs, we maintain production at home as well as offer the option of molding services from our partners in China, with whom we remain in constant contact. Rather than move our production process further away, we focus on extensive training for our in-house production team to produce high-quality results on a timely basis,” says Steve Erickson, Vice President of First American Plastics.

Another solution that First American Plastics has employed to help cut expenses and remain profitable is sustainability. The company’s recycling efforts have reduced trash pick-up from five days a week to three, and the installation of motion detectors keep lights off when not in use. Finding solutions that help reduce costs as well as waste and energy has been beneficial to both the injection molding company and the environment, which the First American Plastics team is proud to stand by.

“Our approach does not involve cutting costs by sacrificing quality and service. Our customers rely on First American Plastics because of the way we do business. Through extensive employee training and education, systematic process controls multiple certifications that we constantly adhere to, and a sustainable process that delivers results on time, we have driven down costs while still keeping our customers satisfied,” says Erickson.
