|The implementation of RJG technology across our entire production facility, supported by the outstanding training and support of the RJG team, has been an extremely important step in the continued development of the fully-automated production model at Plastic Components, Inc.|

|“We selected SIGMASOFT® in 2010 after completing a three-way comparison between the major players in polymer simulation software. SIGMA was the only one to consider temperate soak of the injection mold over time, as opposed to competitor packages which assume a static temperature. SIGMA also considered the unique thermal characteristics of both mold components and over-molded components. The results were clear; only SIGMA’s model correlated astonishingly close to the actual molded part and proved to be the superior technology for truly accurate, mold, pack, fill, and warp simulation.”|

|I reached out to MAPP for help on an issue and they immediately went to work and got me resources. I know that I can always count on MAPP when I have an industry-specific question or need.|
Phil Katen, President
|My company belongs to MAPP for one reason...it pays! Last year alone, my company realized 5 figure savings by using MAPP's purchasing leverage. But more importantly, we used MAPP's Technical Training to significantly improve the skill sets of our employees. With all of this said, I still gained even more through the networking contacts I made and with the insight my management team has gained by using MAPP's plastics benchmarking information and improvement programs. |
Matt Hlavin, Vice President
|My company has been a MAPP Member since 2003 and the decision to join has positively impacted our profitability in more ways than I can count. Not only have we gained a ton of leverage on the purchases we make which translates into savings, but we have also made significant strides at improving our company by using the Benchmarking information that MAPP provides to us. This is a great organization!|
Mike Walter, Vice President and General Managers
|MAPP is an amazing organization! I posted a request for help in finding a mudd base just before 5:00 PM on Thursday evening. I started receiving replies almost immediately. When I checked my e-mail the next morning I was relieved to see that someone had what I needed. My emergency was over. What could have been a disaster with one of my customers was completely avoided because of the MAPP network. It is wonderful how MAPP members unselfishly respond to the needs of their peers. MAPP is truly a trade association that helps it members and members who help each other.|
Lindsey Hahn, President
|We joined MAPP because we thought that the organization could help us reach more companies with our message of greater profits through scrap and downtime reduction. Little did we expect that MAPP members, through the forum on the MAPP website, would be helping us resolve an urgent packaging problem that we faced. After looking into a suggestion from a member, we found a way to solve our packaging supply problem, improve the appearance of our product, and save up to $30,000 / year while doing so! Thank you, MAPP!

|Dear INCOE Corporation
The automotive industry we both work in can be extremely demanding from an operations and service perspective. Recently we were faced with a situation involving a competitor’s hot runner system failing beyond repair, requiring immediate action. The tool was a “take-over” tool that our company acquired about 10 months prior. Our company is a tier 2 supplier to Ford Motor Company. The situation was very frustrating on many levels, and shutting down a Ford assembly line seemed likely.
As chance would have it, this problem occurred on the heels of the Labor day weekend – Friday afternoon. Once we determined the competitor’s hot runner system was un-repairable, Incoe was contacted and asked to the impossible. Ford Motor Company. We needed Incoe to work the majority of Labor Day Weekend to have this mold back in production as soon as possible. It was a request that required others to sacrifice holiday and family time for the support of someone they didn’t know. I’ve NEVER seen such focused performance under such conditions. To punctuate INCOE’s commitment on this project and future relationship, the invoice for costs listed normal un-expedited expense.
For this…You have NO competition.

|“We’ve had a very productive relationship with RTI for several years. Their team is a tremendous source of market intelligence for us regarding resin pricing, availability and forward looking market forces. We cannot be an “expert” in every facet of the plastics business. We rely on our friends at RTI to be our “consultative expert” in the cost-effective management of millions of dollars in resin purchases. I recommend them without reservation to all of my friends in the industry.” |
