PVC is widely used in the manufacturing world because of its cost, durability and versatility. However, not every manufacturer is equipped or willing to run PVC.

PVC emits harmful smoke, fumes and gases during manufacturing. Exposure to these materials should be limited and requires strict adherence to fume control. Also, PVC is prone to burning, and a more challenging material to manufacture. It requires an experienced team of engineers who are trained to manage the hazards and quality control concerns associated with PVC handling. MME group engineers are well versed in PVC manufacturing.

Our most experienced process engineer has more than 42 years of experience with an average run of 30 PVC molds per year. Our other engineers have a combined 30 years of in-house experience molding more than 10,000 pounds of PVC per week. MME facilities comply with NSF (National Sanitation Foundation) standards applied to residential and commercial food, water and sanitation materials. Our quality engineers ensure we are ISO 9001:2008, ISO 13485:2012 and ITAR compliant.

Reasons to Transfer Your Project
Costs
Quality concerns
Need to consolidate suppliers
Current supplier going out of business
Delivery or supply chain challenges

Lack of communication

Moving your program from one supplier to another takes serious consideration and careful execution. Transferring your manufacturing program from your current supplier doesn’t have to increase costs or create new headaches. We’ll customize a transfer program to help you move your project to MME group.

We start by understanding the challenges you face with your current supplier. With full in-house expertise, we use our resources to find solutions. Once we assess the program, we advise on whether the transfer is financially sound. Alongside assessment, we analyze the risk.

To mitigate risks, we analyze the assembly process and your supply chain. We partner with a variety of suppliers who serve Fortune 500 companies. If necessary, we re-qualify current suppliers and/or qualify new suppliers.

We share the facts and costs upfront, and provide ROI predictions. We prepare you for potential buy-out obstacles, devise plans and assist in negotiations. If transferring your program is the right move for your company, we manage it every step of the way.
