AMP and Mold-Rite merger expands moldmaking, injection molding services

Accurate Molded Plastics (AMP; Coeur d’Alene, ID), a supplier of short-run, technical injection molding projects for the medical, aerospace, electronics and fitness industries, has announced a planned merger with Mold-Rite Inc. (Woodinville, WA), which offers similar services to the fitness, aerospace, transportation and medical markets. 

Both companies offer precision mold design, mold construction and injection molding. They also perform a variety of secondary operations such as machining, sonic welding and pad printing. AMP and Mold-Rite each have more than 25 years of experience. Now with two manufacturing locations, the company will offer increased reliability, security and flexibility for their customers. 

“AMP’s and Mold-Rite’s philosophies are very similar,” said Dale Meyer, the companies’ CEO, in a prepared statement. “We have both invested in state-of-the-art equipment and have perfected our approach in order to handle complex jobs with demanding lead times. The merging of these two companies will allow us to better serve our current and future customers.” Meyer adds that they continue to be committed to manufacturing in the United States. 

AMP and Mold-Rite both have dedicated on-site tooling departments and combined employ 10 skilled moldmakers supported by an active apprentice program. Because of this expertise, the companies are able to manufacture extremely precise molds as well as modify and repair molds. This in-house expertise benefits customers by reducing costs and lead-times and mitigating manufacturing risks. 

The merged companies have 45 injection molding machines ranging from 28 to 1,450 tons. This expanded team can now leverage the intellectual talent of both companies, from engineering to moldmaking to manufacturing to quality assurance in order to deliver custom-molded plastics to the marketplace, noted the press release announcing the merger.
