We invest heavily in and remain on the leading edge of mold making, molding, and assembly technology to keep our customers at the forefront.

For over 60 years since our founding as a Tool Making Company in 1956 Plastek has grown to become a Global Supplier for many of the world’s top Companies. We serve our customers with manufacturing sites in the US, UK, Brazil and Mexico. The standardization of much of our equipment, processes, and protocols around the world make developing and implementing Global Projects simpler, quicker, and with less stress and with much cleaner and shorter communication lines.

We can take your product innovations and ideas and create the most efficient, reliable, and high quality Supply Chain possible. This, combined with Plastek’s highest degree of Customer Focus and Commitment, provide our Customers with maximum value and service.

We strive for Continuous Improvement and, for more than (5) years have embraced a Global Template for Total Productive Maintenance (TPM) at all divisions. The TPM Culture has helped train our workforce to work more efficiently for you, avoid “crisis management”, and keep Plastek competitive.
