Tool Transfer Plastics

World Class Tool Transfer Capabilities

At Mergon we’ve always taken great pride in our ability to help customers out in times of crisis. This ability has come to the fore particularly when customers look to transfer tooling from distressed or problem suppliers.

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, unfortunately, many contract manufacturers will struggle to keep their doors open for various reasons. As a result of Covid-19, OEMs and Tier 1 companies may be looking to re-shore business closer to their manufacturing sites to shorten their supply chains.

In both instances, Mergon has proven skills and capabilities in delivering fast turnarounds on transfer business.

Mergon Plastics - Experience in Tool Transferring

Experience in Tool Transfer

In the past, Mergon has moved a set of six tools from an underperforming supplier in the period between Christmas and New Year in order to minimise downtime with an automotive customer.

We have also moved five tools and two injection moulding machines over a 4th of July holiday weekend from a distressed supplier for one of our industrial customers.

Mergon has moved tools in the space of a week and revalidated a full OQ and PQ for a healthcare customer within 10 days – a particularly fast turnaround in such a regulated market.
