For years many businesses turned to cheap labor markets, such as China, for inexpensive manufacturing solutions, but premier plastic injection molding company C&J Industries has noticed a reversal in this trend.
Online PR News – 30-March-2009 – – MEADVILLE, PA -- Pennsylvania-based plastic injection molding company C&J Industries recently announced that it has noticed a reversal in the trend of firms outsourcing manufacturing to cheaper labor markets, such as China. In fact, ten percent of C&J Industries' current business includes projects that were transferred back to the United States from Chinese manufacturers. Specifically, the firm has observed a significant amount of medical, consumer and industrial related business being pulled from Asian markets.
"There is something attractive about doing business with integrity – that's not just a given anymore. Businesses were choosing to go over to China because a 'herd' mentality was driving many manufacturers there…but now some companies are coming back," says Mark Fuhrman, Marketing Manager for C&J Industries (http://www.cjindustries.com).
As an overall trend, some original equipment manufacturers are bringing projects back from China due to problems with communication, continuity of supply, logistics as well as total overall cost. C&J Industries' guiding principles will be a very attractive to these frustrated companies.
Through higher cavitation molds and automation, C&J Industries is often able to provide a lower cost option than most Chinese manufacturers. Ingenuity and innovative technology are driving forces behind C&J Industries' competitive advantage. The firm's success can be attributed to its overall commitment to quality and willingness to invest in capital to better serve its customers.
Additionally, C&J Industries offers superior warranties to those available through Chinese manufacturers. In the plastics industry, when a custom injection molder builds a tool, they typically offer a standard warranty based on the number of shots or cycles, similar to a standard three year, 36,000 mile warranty on a car. However, C&J Industries goes beyond standard by offering a 10-year warranty on the production tooling, regardless of volume.
"Given C&J Industries' advanced technology and superior warranties, it is no surprise that many firms are now turning to us to meet their most challenging manufacturing needs," says Fuhrman.
