MGS Mfg. Group Inc., a Germantown, Wis.-based company that does custom injection molding, makes tooling and builds multishot injection units and components, has expanded its new product development and rapid tooling offerings by offering that expertise more broadly than before.
The goal is helping customers improve design for manufacturability before a production mold is built by getting involved early, company officials said.
"By leveraging capabilities and experience from our team early in the product development process, we can deliver the best tool designs and recommendations for our customers, right from the start," MGS President Paul Manley said. "Doing so helps our customers shorten the new product development process upfront to create preproduction tooling that quickly transitions to production-ready tools."
In addition to design and material selection, MGS leverages its additive manufacturing capabilities to develop prototype tooling and 3D printed parts. Then, MGS can build bridge tooling to support early production or make final high-production tooling.
MGS officials tout the company's integrated solutions, including the molding and multishot expertise.
MGS employs 1,800 people at six manufacturing facilities in the United States, Mexico and Ireland. Mason Wells, a Milwaukee-based private equity firm, owns MGS.
