Customer Story: Robert Glover, WigWag Dog Collars
A year ago we were doing most of our production in Asia. We wanted to move back to the U.S. for better communication and better quality products. We started looking on the web and found [Extreme Molding]. Their capabilities were along the lines of what we wanted to do, and they were a small company that was growing and that was something we were interested in. One of the most important aspects to Extreme Molding was that they were a full-service company. The fact that they could go from molding to packaging to warehousing to shipping was very enticing.
Since we moved back to the states, we’ve changed our material from silicone to a polyurethane. We worked with them for a while on matching the right type of plastic for what we wanted. We wanted it to be FDA-approved, so if a little pup started chewing on it he would be ok and owners would feel safe with it. They did a bunch of tests for UV bleaching, how things like dog hair would stick to it, how hard it was, its abrasion resistance, its durability and so on.
They’ve been very, very helpful. Very spontaneous and very encouraging. They are going out on a limb to take on a start-up company like us and we’re very appreciative.
As the global leader in silicone and plastic injection molding and overmolding, Extreme Molding is the ideal American partner for producers of both brand-name and private-label pet products.
The market for private-label pet supplies is growing rapidly, and Extreme Molding has the technical capability and attention to detail to produce just about any plastic or silicone item used for the feeding and comfort of household animals, with the exception of those used for the delivery of drugs. This includes collars, bowls, toys and automated feeding systems that use embedded electronics.
Pet lovers with money to spend can be very discriminating, and the made-in-the-USA tag and traceability that Extreme Molding provides will allow your brand-name or private-label pet products to stand out from the competition. The high-performance materials we use, including BPA-free co-polyester and food-grade and Class 6-compliant silicone, will exceed expectations for safety and durability.
We approach every customer relationship as a partnership, and our full-service model is designed to take the burden out of offering your own line of private-label pet supplies. We will mold your product in plastic or silicone, assemble the components in a Class 100,000-rated white-wall environment and place the finished item in custom retail packaging, ready to go on store shelves.
We also provide global fulfillment, which means we will process the orders that come through your website and ship your brand-name or private-label pet products directly to consumers all over the world. We will show every one of your customers the same high level of personal service you will receive from us.
Trust Extreme Molding to turn your private-label pet supplies from prototypes or foreign-made products into the high-quality, made-in-the-USA items your customers will want for their best friends. There is no need to go overseas when everything you need is right here in Albany, N.Y.
