Dear MAPP Members:

I was wondering if any of you might have a painting source that could help us? 

We are molding a clear Polycarb part, and we need to have an area on this part painted.  The volume is around 5,000 to 10,000 pieces per year.

Is there anybody in the MAPP network that can help us? 

If you can help me or have a resource, please feel free to contact me direct.

Very Sincerely,

Jim Taylor

Well I have to tell the entire network that the MAPP members really came thru again for Indiana Plastics. I was receiving calls and E-mails from MAPP members with in minutes of my e-mail to you requesting help.

I now have several solid leads for companies that can help me with painting our Polycarb plastic part.

This would have taken me a day our two to do a search and find these companies on my own time. Even then I would not know the quality of their work. The contacts the MAPP members sent to me are known and trusted sources for this type of work.

I can not tell you what a benefit it is to us and to our customers that we are members of MAPP.

Very Sincerely
