Value Added Assembly for Products with Thermoformed Plastics Components

Many customers call upon Productive Plastics to provide assembly services for their products, so that they can move quickly from the thermoformed plastics components to finished product. This typically involves adding hardware, machined or fabricated metal or plastic parts, and electronics to the thermoformed parts to create the final product or a major sub-assembly. Sometimes multiple vacuum thermoformed parts are bonded to create a single assembly, or outsourced sheet metal and/or machined plastic parts are added to provide upper level assemblies. Productive Plastics is a leader in custom plastic components fabrication and offers assembly as a value added service, making it easy for our customers to complete their products more quickly, get the product to market more quickly, while reducing the need and cost to coordinate multiple suppliers. Productive Plastics’ highly trained engineers are experts in the area of bonding. Whether using solvent or structural adhesive bonding, Productive Plastics has the expertise to provide the best solution for the bonding application. Partnerships with local suppliers of sheet metal and fabricated plastic components allow Productive Plastics to respond to customer requirements for price, delivery and quality.
