In February, M.R. Mold & Engineering announced the launch of its new website, with the assistance of DezTech Consulting LLC of Huntington Beach, CA, featuring a number of improvements to coincide with its 25th Anniversary year and to showcase its proprietary line of molding accessories. The project was completed in only 3 week's time so that the new website would be up in time for the MD&M West show in Anaheim, CA.
Rick Finnie, founder and president of M.R. Mold & Engineering, opened his company’s doors in 1985 with the goal of providing customers with a distinct competitive advantage over others in the industry. The company, located in Brea, CA, first occupied a 1,500 square foot building. Today, the plant has grown to occupy 15,000 square feet including a 4,000 square foot Technology Center.
The Technology Center houses two Engel presses and one Negrabossi press, allowing M.R. Mold to sample molds, assist in R&D, make immediate customer revisions in material and processes, sample various materials, and develop automation for customers’ tools.
Currently, about 50% of the molds built by M.R. Mold are for liquid silicone molding, while 25% are for manufacturing rubber products and 25% are built for molding plastic products for various industries. Most LSR molds are for the medical industry.
"What we offer is the depth of knowledge required to assist our customers in the achievement of their goals,” said Finnie. “We offer advice, make suggestions and make sure that the tools they are purchasing are going to meet their needs in the most effective ways."
