How We Work

A Polymer project engineer is assigned to work with you for the entire length of your partnership with us. The partnership ensures your team that the same point person will understand and communicate the full breadth of your product offerings to fellow teammates as the relationship grows.

Our expert engineering contact will then work with you on every single product, from part design through full qualification and approvals. Once a part is approved and is in regular production, your purchasing team can then coordinate with our customer service representatives who will keep track of your product orders and deliverables.

When you are ready to make changes to the design or functionality of a part or when you start working on next generation product designs, that same PCI engineer is at your disposal and will work side-by-side with you until your product modification or next generation product launches successfully. If you are unsure about material selection, our engineers can help with that too. Polymer's engineers have expertise related to everything from standard stock materials to highly complex engineered resins. They understand the properties and flow characteristics that most resins exhibit and are often instrumental in helping a customer determine whether pre-colored materials are more advantageous than adding colorant to natural resin at the press.

Verify Manufacturability

Polymer is there to help you during every phase of your project. All of our engineers are capable of reviewing critical drawing tolerances to determine the best overall design for manufacturability. This important step helps to keep your costs low, a mission as critical to Polymer as it is to your own organization. Finding the right design early on will save you both time and money  as your product goes from design to full production. 

PCI engineers can also  help with design modifications, suggesting next generation product enhancements and taking a look at the entire manufacturing process to determine where steps can be combined (either in your own facility or within Polymer) or even eliminated through lean cell manufacturing or advanced processing.

Industries We Serve

More than 40% of Polymer's business is from purchasing agents transferring a tool or entire programs to PCI because they were unsatisfied with their current supplier(s).

In most cases the issue was poor quality, but lack of service and lack of providing world-class solutions for difficult tooling/manufacturing tolerances and processes were also top concerns.
