Monroe, MI – Quick turnarounds on prototype products are the norm for Monroe Mold.
“The company’s rapid-shuttle mold platform is ideal for any firm needing a quick prototype to test product designs on a lab machine. It comes in customized sizes and is made at our Monroe, Michigan mold shop, just one-half hour south of Detroit – ideal for shipment to most North American shops. Packaging companies like that our standard rapid-shuttle mold has a normal delivery time of just one week for samples,” according to Jim Ghesquire, president.
An assortment of products ranging from small personal-care molds to a shuttle production mold, deflash tooling and head tooling will be on display at NPE. The privately owned company is known for supplying molds used by major container companies making up to five- gallon bottles used for agricultural and chemical products; large nursery planters for trees and plants; industrial containers and drums; plus a broad assortment of bottles made by major consumer-packaging firms. The blow molds will be on display at NPE Booth #S20063 in conjunction with its sister company, R&B Plastics Machinery located in nearby Saline, MI.
“Average turn-around time (from submission of drawings to first run) is from one week for the RSM platform to nine weeks for a complete Rotary Shuttle mold package. Our rebuild business also is significant: We retrofit all sizes and types of blow molds and extruder dies,” explained Ghesquire.
Monroe Mold was founded in 1977 and has a staff of 26 with over 300 years combined experience. In addition to its expert mold makers, the company’s Midwest location is ideal for fast-turnaround on deliveries and service/support, Ghesquire added.
