Why OEM’s Choose Northwest Plastic

40 Years Of Successful Partnerships and Counting

For 40 years Northwest Plastics has built lasting relationships with our OEM Partners. In that time not a single one of them has left. Why? It’s the simple things really. Things like being on-time, every time! Being on spec. Being ISO 9001-2008 certified. It’s the relationship that we have built together, the fact that Northwest has ingratiated itself in the business of our Partners. It’s about going the extra mile. It’s about the comprehensive list of materials we work with. And most of all, it’s because we all want to work together, because we have our client’s best interests at heart!

ISO 9001-2008 Certification

ISO 9001 Certified means that we have met the requirements in ISO 9001 as it relates to our Quality Management System. In normal human terms, that means we strive for consistent results while we continually improve our process. It means our focus is 100% on customer satisfaction and meeting customer expectations. To be ISO 9001 Certified means that we must pay attention to our Partners. It means our Quality Management System is appropriate and effective in meeting the exacting expectations of our demanding, yet happy Partners.

What We Do

Manual and CNC Trimming

We finish and trim plastic parts using our 5-axis CNC machine. Having a 5-axis CNC machine means it has the ability to trim complicated shapes without having to do multiple part setups as it has the ability to move on five different axes at the same time. This helps the cutting tool approach the part from all directions resulting in almost limitless applications possible. It also means the parts can be produced quickly and efficiently while maintaining accuracy. A process that can be endlessly repeated. A process that can accurately scale with the quality and manufacturing demands of your business. What does this mean for you? If it can be done, we can do it.

Custom Assembly & Testing

Having over 40 years experience means we have pretty much seen it all. No matter the material, size, timing needs or stringency of quality control; we do it all. Some parts need to be one-piece, others multiple pieces that fit together. Some need to be shipped in individual parts, others assembled. Some need to be simple, others very complex. Some even require complex design inclusions such as metal inserts, graphics, or even foam in the wall of the part. No matter what you need, our response is pretty much always the same: "absolutely, we can do that!"

Shipping and Storage

Another thing that makes Northwest Plastics unique, is our storage and shipping abilities. We are conveniently located on the Canada - US Border in BC, Canada. Every day we ship finished products locally, and around the world, and everywhere in between. What about in between production runs? We store and maintain our client's Forms and Tooling. In fact, we've built our entire facility around ensuring we can continue doing so! Many other rotomolding companies charge for this, or expect their OEM Partners to arrange their own removal, storage, and maintenance of Forms and Tooling. It's just a part of what we do!

Custom Processes

Our process is profoundly simple; so what makes Northwest Plastics unique? What makes us stand out? Our ability to handle EPS foam processing is one of the things that does. We realized that there was a need to make large industrial floats. So we thought of an innovative way to make that happen! We custom designed, built, tested, and implemented a manufacturing technology, that has since become tried and tested. What does this mean for you? Simple: if we don't already have a solution for your business challenges, we'll build one!
