Xcentric - Injection Molding Services

Xcentric plastic injection molding services focus on rapid delivery of prototype and low-volume production components. Our production processes are streamlined such that we typically deliver first articles in less than 15 business days, and for simple expedited projects in as little as five days. At the other end of the spectrum, we frequently produce components for customers needing a few hundred thousand components as a bridge to higher productivity molds. Over time, we have earned a reputation for being able to handle highly complex projects, overmolding, custom insert molding, and other complicated projects much faster than with traditional tooling, often helping our clients get to market weeks, if not months earlier. At Xcentric, every mold is designed and fabricated and all production is run in one of our two Michigan-based facilities.
