Hello to all,
Any USA moldmakers on the forum that make Injection Molds and/or Aluminum Die Cast Molds and/or Blow Molds?
The reason I'm asking is that I do Product Design and Mold Design for customers from around the USA and occasionally they will need assistance having a mold made and ask me for a recommendation. I would like to have contact with mold shops from around the country so I can recommend someone close to my customer for their convenience.
If you're interested please let me know your capabilities and give me your contact information and website so I can connect with you.
If you're uncomfortable posting your information on an open forum then please feel free to contact me directly at: email@example.com
I look forward to hearing from you.
Have a terrific 4th of July weekend!

I will add your company name to a list of other Chinese mold factories that spam advertise US forums and e-mail addresses. This list is posted on the internet so US companies know which offshore mold factories from China abuse US forums and e-mails. This way they can avoid using their services.
Have a terrific day!
Thank you for your contact information.
I'm currently in China assisting a US customer who had problems with molds he had made here. If he had listened to me and not had his molds made in China he would have saved a lot of money and headaches!
I will contact you when I return to the USA. Not sure when that will be, maybe a couple weeks and perhaps a couple months.
Have a terrific day!
I will remove the link and if possible, i will remove that replying post. In that replying, i just presented my willing to cooperate. if you have no interest, it is up to you.
I feel you are very angry with the Chinese Mold factories,
Actually not all the Chinese mold factories are bad.
Maybe you will know a lots of US companies who get hurted due to they purchased molds from China.
But do you know there still are lots US companies who get good quality molds and more competitive price from China?
I never said all the Chinese mold factories are good.We also hate the bad Chinese mold factories who made a bad reputation to the Chinese factories.
Have a nice day.
I look foward to hearing from you! took a look at your website and forums and i am impressed. i couldnt agree with you more either! we are going to be needing an injection mold made for us in a few weeks possibly (depending on client) promising product. the similarities in our different industries is impecable. were always looking for other small buisnesses to push income around too. gotta keep the little guys alive! i am positive we can work together in one shape or form. talk with you soon!
Thank you for your post.
You are wrong, I am not angry with Chinese mold factories. What I don't like however is when Chinese mold factories abuse US forums by spam advertising their companies. Most make no useful contributions to the forums but only dilute the purpose and chase away those who would otherwise be interested. No one likes to make a post asking a question or seeking information only to be bombarded by Chinese mold factories or factories from any other country for that matter telling them how great and cheap their services are especially if that's not what they asked about.
I have seen a couple other forums in the USA that were destroyed by the behavior of Chinese mold factories. One I know of that I just visited this morning has apparently been shut down because of this which is a shame because it was once a good forum.
Remember something, when you visit a US forum you are a guest in our country in a certain sort of way. Chinese mold factories should be sensitive to this and behave accordingly. When I am in China, as I am currently, I am very well aware that I am a guest here and I'm very conscious of the cultural differences.
In China it might be socially acceptable to spam forums with advertising similar to the way many small businesses in China plaster their phone numbers all over the city with stickers and marking pens. In the USA this is not acceptable. In China copying others products may be considered a form of flattery whereas in the USA it's considered stealing! One needs to be aware of the cultural differences.
As far as Chinese mold factories having more competitive prices this is a falsity. The only reason China can currently offer lower prices is because the Chinese Communist government controls the value of the Yuan (RMB) and keeps it artificially low. It has been estimated that the RMB is undervalued between 20% and 40%. This puts China not in the position of being a fair and equitable player in the global economy but makes China a global bully only wanting to get it's own way!
You want to gain the respect of people and companies in the USA? Then go to your government and ask them to allow the RMB to float on the global market along with the currencies of all the other countries that do so and wish to trade with the USA.
I'll tell you something, US companies that use your services are only taking advantage of you because you're currently cheap. If you were to raise your prices 20% to 40% higher as they should be, most of your US customers will disappear regardless of how good you think your quality is!
Since this is basically off topic from my original post let's just let this conversation die right now. If you want to open this bag of worms in another thread be my guest but I'll warn you, don't expect much sympathy. I'm sure there are others on this forum who'll give you their opinions of Chinese mold factories and Chinese products in general and they won't be good.
Have a terrific day!
Thank you for your kind post, I'm glad you enjoyed my website.
I will call you from China this next week so we can have a conversation. It will be late afternoon your time which is early morning the next day here in China.
I'm looking forward to working together.
Have a terrific day!
