Plasti-Coli/Tri-Tec is a custom plastic injection molder with expertise in producing gears and precision plastic components, as well as internal and external threads. Plasti-Coli/Tri-Tec’s growth is measured by an increase in sales over prior periods. Over the past year, the company said its growth has been spurred by current customers that value its core values and U.S. base.

The company faces the challenge of finding labor and is looking for ways to automate to offset labor. So far, Plasti-Coli/Tri-Tec has developed a new EOS management system, added new injection molding machines, and increased the sizes to mold larger parts. Additionally, the company is currently working on a new ERP system, which will give it faster access to machine performance, cycle times and rejects.

Looking forward, Plasti-Coli/Tri-Tec wants to communicate to its customers that it has a wide range of ability to mold different parts.
