Skill, precision, commitment.
Since1966, RMC Plastics has been providing a complete range of plastic injection molding and product design services for businesses in the city of Houston and beyond.
Our decades of experience ensure the success of your prototype. We will work closely with you to bring your product to life, providing expertise and insight on design and materials while helping you avoid pitfalls commonly faced in product design.
From concept to completion: our process
Our process begins with you. We take the time to get to know you, your product, your company, and your vision so that we can better understand your needs and goals.
Our product designers will consult with our engineers on materials and other variables that may impact the final result. We approach your project as a team, allowing us to detect problems early in the process, thus reducing the incidence of product design revisions. We keep you in the loop every step of the way, so you are well-informed and confident through every stage.
In order to take complete advantage of the value that injection molding can deliver, parts need to be designed with manufacturing in mind. We like to work with our clients on the front end of the process by reviewing their designs and offering suggestions that will help make the project a success.
Once we have a working design, we will go through the different tooling options available, helping you choose the correct mold or tool based upon the part’s expected use and a full cost/benefit analysis.
We then provide you with sample materials and work through the material selection process. Once the mold is complete, we test the molds in a variety of materials and, finally, once the samples have been approved, we leverage our experience and fleet of injection molding machines to manufacture your parts.
Choose local for your product design needs
Outsourcing your product fabrication and design may save you money up-front, but in the end, it will cause more problems than it solves.
Many of our clients are concerned about outsourcing their manufacturing and fabrication, afraid that their designs will be stolen. Granted, the cost advantages are sometimes quite attractive, but the perception that domestic fabrication services are that much more expensive is a little overblown.
In recent years, we have seen an increase in the domestic availability of raw materials, which is actually driving costs down. Keep in mind also that by having direct access to the process from the design phase onward will drastically reduce time-to-completion and deliver value straight to your bottom line.
If security, quality, precision, commitment, and accountability are high-priority to you, we want you to know that we share that viewpoint. Our technicians are at the top of their respective fields and completely dedicated to providing you with the best product design services possible, no matter how big or how complex the job might be.
Because we are a small, family-run business, our response times are faster than any of our competitors. We may be small, but we are mighty. And above all, we are committed to supporting the Houston community with dependable, quality product design and injection molding services.
