Now part of Intertech Plastics

As of July 2013, Image Molding is a part of Intertech Plastics Inc.  What this means short-term is very little… our employees still have the same roles, our customers will continue to receive the service & quality they’ve come to expect, and our operations will remain fairly unchanged.   Ok so if nothing’s changing, then why would Intertech want to acquire Image?

Yes good point.  And rest assured this lack of change is only temporary.  We are excited to have these companies join, as Image’s capabilities in the small part molding and assembly for medical applications compliments the other skills and capabilities of Intertech Plastics nicely, resulting in a very diverse, stable, and capable service bureau.   We look forward to not only continuing to service your molded plastic needs in the same way you’re accustomed to from Image Molding, but also introduce new options for you when it comes to assembly, packaging, fulfillment, and higher cavitation molding.

As we continue to develop our employees, invest in new capabilities, and take on new challenges, the result will be a growing service bureau that can efficiently accomplish more than either of its subsidiaries could have done independently.  It’s our hope that in time you’ll take advantage of some of the many services available to you now from Intertech, as we work to leverage the best of the best from each business unit into standard practices across all facilities, while at the same time provide you with a much wider array of product development and manufacturing services.

 

New Molding Presses

Image Molding announced today that it added three additional injection molding presses. A 2012 Toyo Si-55V-D150CU, 2011 Toyo Si-1101V/F2004BU, and 2011 Toyo Si-150F200HBU add 55, 110, and 150 ton capacity to Image’s tool kit, making its total machine count of 20 presses.

“These new Toyos are just what we needed,” commented Ewan Granthum, President of Image Molding, “and they’re just what our customers need as well.” Grantham went on to explain how these new electric presses not only run more efficiently and cooler than some of the older machines, but will produce more reliable results as well, which translates to higher part quality and improved satisfaction. All of the molding presses operate inside Image’s 33,000ft² white room manufacturing facility, creating molded parts and devices for the medical industry.
