We have produced material handling products and dock lockers for a number of years. We recently added a new product, the SUV Cargo Caddy to organize and maximize storage in the rear cargo area of mid- and full-size SUVs.
Our secondary operations can add metal inserts to your parts, among other things. We can add value to many rotational molded parts.
We fabricate close to 250 molds a year from sheet aluminum ourselves and have an additional 50 built for us from cast aluminum. Depending on the change to the existing tools, we can make changes to tools in a matter of weeks.
Typically, we can design a mold in one week, and build a new mold in four weeks. Be aware, though, that the larger the size and more complex the shape, the longer it can take.
Rotational molding will work for you if you are fabricating parts from sheet steel, aluminum, wood, fiberglass, or other similar materials. Instead of assembling a number of pieces to make one part, rotational molding makes one seamless part.
