If you’re in the market for a company to handle your plastic product fabrication in Utah, you might be wondering what the most important qualities are that you can find in your prospective manufacturers. Here’s a quick set of characteristics you should always prioritize when looking for a new fabrication partner:

  • Quality work: This one almost goes without saying, but it’s important that whomever you work with has a clear reputation for quality. We recommend seeking out referrals from other companies in your field, or browsing reviews and testimonials online on various review sites (Yelp, Google Reviews, Angie’s List) and the company’s own website. If you’re able to see samples of the company’s work, that will also be helpful in verifying that the company has high standards of quality.
  • Experience: More experience tends to correlate with higher quality work, so it’s a good idea to seek out a partner for your plastic product fabrication that has established itself in its field and has been in business for more than just a few years. A company that has been working in the field for quite a while clearly is doing something right, as it keeps getting enough clients to survive and thrive. Always ask how long a company has been in business when doing your background research, and ask about specific experience they have in working with companies in your industry or in developing the kind of product you need. You can also ask specific questions about the expertise and experience level of certain individuals on their team, including the people who will be overseeing your actual work.
  • Domestic manufacturing: It feels good to support local industry, doesn’t it? It’s always a nice benefit to be able to work with a company that does its manufacturing domestically, and perhaps even locally. This gives that company a more competitive advantage because it will have in-house tooling and experienced staff members on hand to provide you with a single stop for all of your needs, ranging from product design to the actual manufacturing and execution of the design. A company that keeps all its processes in house and in the country allows you to be more involved in the design process, and also makes it easier for the company to stay on top of its quality control practices. With this in mind, look for companies that boast domestic manufacturing as part of their benefits.
  • Communication: It’s a great benefit to have a partner with whom you feel comfortable communicating. The process of placing an order should never feel like a chore, and you should feel comfortable offering feedback regarding the design. The manufacturer should also focus on translating any industry jargon into language you can understand to help you feel more comfortable about the project.
