The global market has evolved a lot in recent times. With that – the approach and business model for some manufactures has also shifted.
Typically, a tooling transfer might take place in pursuit of higher quality, better pricing, a change in business model and in pursuit of an overall more reliable supply chain.
Following on from the above many organizations are seeking to reduce their carbon footprint and do their part for the environment.
Today, the location of your moulding partner can play a key role in offering a cost-effective and geographically practical solution to reduce transport costs alongside the associated Co² footprint.
