Sourcing the Perfect Vendor
Sourcing Process

Finding a supplier to source your manufactured polymer components is a stressful job.  There are many factors to consider when choosing a manufacturing vendor when sourcing your product.  With rapidly evolving technologies and practices changing constantly, it’s hard to stay on top and ahead of the game.

Vendor qualification is a timely process that can’t be ignored.  To hone in on the best manufacturing process for your project can be difficult at times.  The qualification process requires knowing capabilities, equipment, quality programs, and certifications just to name a few.  Depending on the level of the project, the requirements could be much longer.

How AxisNorth can help

AxisNorth can help you with your polymer sourcing needs.  We specialize in being a single source of supply for our customers.  Additionally, we have years of experience in the plastic and rubber industries.  Our capabilities include injection molding, blow molding, plastic extrusion, rubber extrusion, rubber molding, die cutting, thermoforming, UMHW, rotomolding, and assembling, as well as other processes.  We have partnered with multiple vendors for each manufacturing process and present you with the most competitive quote using each method.

By sending us an RFQ, you are in essence getting multiple quotes, which can and may include two or three different methods of manufacturing.  For example, we can quote a part by rotational molding, blow molding, and possibly thermoforming, give you multiple tooling and per-piece price comparisons. Different quotes from different vendors will help paint a more complete picture of (1) the best process for your polymer project and (2) the most cost-effective way to produce your components.
