Covid-19 has caused an economic down turn in many industries with the manufacturing sector being hit particularly hard. With many workers unwilling to work during this pandemic to supply chains being interrupted due to logistic restrictions, manufacturers are faced with many hurdles to maintain keep their business afloat. We at Linvox understand the many hardships that manufacturers have to face during these times and have adapted a new business model to provide better service to all of our clients. To shorten the lead time we provide a vendor managed inventory program that can assist our customers by holding inventory at our warehouse in Fremont, Ca. This program allows customer to order a large quantity of inventory and call for their release as needed which can shorten lead times by 8-10 weeks. Many small manufacturers that participates in this program are able to keep their supply chain flowing during this crisis and we are honored to be able to contribute to their effort on producing essential good such as ventilators. We will continue to make an effort to find ways to best support our business partners and hope that everyone will remain healthy and safe.

Plastic Injection Molding: What can we help you design?

Francisco Mancillas

 

FREMONT, CA – February 2, 2018 Continuing our promise to become your one stop shop Linvox, one the largest power cord manufacturers in the Pacific Rim, offers Plastic Injection Molding for your projects. VALUE ADDED!

Does your project require plastic casing or customized small parts to go along with our power cords? We can work with you to create exactly what your design requires instead of providing you with a list of preset plastic solutions.

Depending on the size of your product, we can usually approach this customization as a value add. Since our manufacturing site has several plastic injection machines on location we are able to listen closely to your needs and produce a custom item that fits the specifications of your product. “This is a game changer for a lot of our existing and potentially new customers.” says Business Development Manager Francisco Mancillas.

He adds that customers would rather shop for all of their necessities at a single location rather than waste time running around to different businesses for different products and services.

“I would hate it if i had to travel to five different grocery stores just to fill up my fridge you know? Having the ability to offer different services like molding capabilities, packaging, and labeling to go with products is a real benefit to many customers that would love to save time and money. There’s nothing better for your business than saving time and money.”
