In mid-2020, with global supply chains experiencing significant disruption and apparently no end in sight to the destabilizing impact of Covid-19 on international trade, Australian companies increasingly turned to local manufacturers to meet their packaging requirements.

The facility houses 18 injection molding machines ranging in tonnage from 50-300 tons and can produce both single and multi-piece articles.
“From a production volume of 10,000 to 20,000 products a month, we were facing orders of 50,000 to 100,000 caps a month. Manual assembly was no longer a viable option for us,” – Paul Neumeyer, Managing Director of Designed Mouldings
