The automotive industry is constantly changing. From the parts and molds to the software and final product, you want to know that your suppliers are staying on top of their respective industries to offer you the best product.
Founded in 1964 in the small town of Mishawaka, Indiana, Michiana Global Mold is one of the leaders in high quality injection molds for the rubber and plastics industry. Our teams are able to develop the simplest prototypes or the most complex multi-cavity molds that can meet some of the most difficult specifications. Since you may not need your mold designed from scratch, our teams are also able to update and re-engineer existing molds with incredibly good results, even if the molds originated with a different mold maker.
Our partnership with our off-shore partner ensures that we can provide top quality molds at a competitive price and typically in less time than domestic molds. They are experts at helping to produce both partial and fully-finished molds. However, all of the development, inspections, and delivery are conducted at our 25,000 square foot facility in Indiana.
Our facility has the latest in high speed CNC machining and wire and conventional EDMs technology and service presses that go up to 500 tons. Our engineers and journeymen have over 500 years of combined experience in making top quality molds.
From the start of each project, our team members communicate and coordinate to ensure that your specifications and requirements are understood and considered during each phase. We also make it easy for you to access information on your molds through a data sharing portal from the early concept stages through troubleshooting and finally production stage. Our focus is on getting each mold right the first time. While this may increase the lead time, it significantly reduces all following stages and ensure you get the product you need. By getting it right from the beginning, you get a much greater return on your investment.
