Where do you manufacture your products?
Extreme Molding does not build molds in-house, but we work with high-quality North American mold makers throughout the United States to offer you the best injection mold solution.
Are your molds built internally or sourced elsewhere?
Depending on the material choice for your mold, we can source low-volume molds in as little as 3 weeks and high-volume production tools as fast as 12 weeks.

Lead times differ depending on the complexity of the mold. But, once the mold has arrived at Extreme Molding, we try to produce First Article parts off the mold in less than 3 days from receiving it
