INNOVATE AND DRIVE SOLUTIONS
New ideas are the bedrock of success. Let go of the way we have always done it and think about how it could be better. Think critically about problems and offer new ways to overcome the challenge.

Every team member contributes to the success of our customers and our company. We look for ways to help each other and go above and beyond, with a service-first attitude daily.
ACT WITH AGILITY
We encourage nimble actions and problem-solving, removing obstacles to exceed customer expectations.
RESPECT EVERYONE, BUILD INCLUSIVITY
We welcome all cultures, genders and backgrounds, where everyone collaborates enthusiastically. We learn from each other. Mutual respect is our cornerstone.
BE HUNGRY FOR ACHIEVEMENT
We take pride in our work and growth in our jobs. Be hungry for success. Always look for opportunities to learn and improve. We all have a stake in our success.
AN INNOVATIVE ONE-STOP SHOP
From the roughest new idea to a tried-and-true design, we will work with the customer to meet their every need. We take the customer’s idea and machine the mold in our state-of-the-art tool and die facility. Once the mold is completed, our Quality Team takes over to ensure the parts meet the customer’s every specification. Our proprietary process along with our ever-increasing automation allow us to finish the part with less waste than our competitors.
PUTTING DOUBTS TO REST
We work with your engineers, project leaders and buyers who need UHMW’s durability, superior wear capabilities and toughness molded into complex shapes. We are the company willing to help solve problems and meet our customers’ high standards.
