Plastic Industry Forum - Converse with Plastics Processing Leaders / Business / Looking for US Mold Makers for Injection Molded Buckets
Posted:  05 Oct 2016 18:38
We are in search for good, domestic mold makers who are capable of building injection molds for buckets similar to the 5 GAL Buckets you would find at Home Depots/Lowes. Any referrals would be appreciated.

I'd recommend looking into W.G. Strohwig Tool & Die.  They have built many molds similar to this and provide a high quality mold.

You can contact A1 Tool in Melrose Park (Chicago).  They are a good shop, and can handle large molds, including sampling.  Geoff Luther is President, and I'd start with him.

Good luck.
