Benefits of Partnering With SCS Elevator for Your Plastic Injection Molding Needs

For more than 40 years, SCS Elevator Products has been a highly respected quality supplier of a variety of products — most notably elevator signage, buttons, and jamb and cab braille. 

But did you know that, in addition to the products we sell, we also offer manufacturing services, including plastic injection molding and mold design?

With the instability brought about by recent supply chain disruptions, many companies who currently rely on overseas manufacturing have begun searching for an alternative manufacturer in the U.S. 

If that’s you, SCS Elevator could be the right fit. 

Manufacturing Overseas Has Fewer Advantages Than It Used To

Over the past 40 years, manufacturing of everything from clothes to medicine to electronics has moved overseas. The primary goal was to reduce costs: cheaper manufacturing meant lower costs not only for the manufacturer but also for the end user. 

But the supply chain disruptions of the past two years have revealed just how vulnerable the current system is. Disruptions due to the COVID-19 pandemic have led to continual delays and shortages, begging the question, “Is overseas manufacturing really cost effective anymore?”

As a result, we’re beginning to see a push to bring manufacturing back to the U.S. 

From small businesses to huge corporations, companies are rethinking the way we manufacture the products we use every day. Even corporate giants like General Motors, Toyota, and Samsung have recently announced plans to increase manufacturing in the U.S..
