Multiple Part Projects, Assembly, and Attachments

Value Added Assembly for Products with Thermoformed Plastics Components

At Productive Plastics, many of the thermoformed plastic parts that we manufacture for our customers are not stand alone pieces, but components of an assembly or multi-part enclosure. Like a puzzle, these individual parts must be manufactured to fit together with precision and uniformity to successfully create the finished product.

Assembly services at Productive Plastics can move projects quickly from thermoformed plastic components to a finished build or product. This can involve adding attachment hardware, machined or fabricated metal and plastic parts, and electronics to thermoformed parts to create the final product or a major sub-assembly. Multiple vacuum thermoformed parts can be bonded to create a single assembly, or outsourced sheet metal and/or machined plastic parts are added to provide upper level assemblies.

Productive Plastics offers assembly as a value added service. This enables our customers to reduce finished product production time, consolidate their supply chain, and get the product to market faster. Eliminating the need and cost to coordinate multiple suppliers.
