Well times are changing and a lot of offshore injection moulding is returning to the UK. Kavia Moulded Products have been working on a number customer plastic component opportunities doing cost comparisons with their China and Malaysia placed work against UK costs with results in favour of our UK pricing and that doesn’t even include peripheral costs of managing offshore manufacture such as – trips abroad, employed resource abroad, quality handling agents, cash flow, bulk orders and storage of finished goods.
Also in today’s current turmoil with supply chains it is very important to have a trusted supplier or your brand could be in the news as quick as a horse meat or tuna scandal!
Kavia Moulded Products have to be innovative and creative in their added value services by working closely with customers for a common cost effective solution. Our management team has many years experience serving many sectors affording transferable solutions. With a UK supply comes the benefits of closed loop delivery offering further opportunities of cost savings whilst improving your environment footprint.
In addition to moving existing tools back to the UK, new projects can make further savings with speed to market and design versus an offshore injection mould tool project.
Customers are encouraged to engage with Kavia as soon as possible in the design process so they can benefit from our design for manufacture experience. Business Development Manager Iain Hill is a qualified product designer with over 20 years in design and 14 years injection moulding and is available to collaborate with your design resource to produce cost effective designs. He has worked on single component inventor projects right up to tool sets of over 50 and manufactured product rolled out across two factories simultaneously so no job is too small or big.
Coupled with a collection of live injection mould tools abroad being moved for a cost down and a plastic component spend is a strong foundation for a long term relationship that can support with further innovation and added value investment. Your business cannot stand still in a competitive market so your supply chain partners should do the same.
