Our Process

We Design It

With over 35 years of plastic molding part design & mold design experience, Pioneer has the background, expertise, and determination to create the best version of your product and build the mold to produce it.

We Build It

Our skilled tool and die craftsmen use lathes, mills, or CNC machining to build the mold at our in-house tooling shop, Collins Engineering, Inc. In-house plastic machining & tooling saves you time and money with quick design modifications and a mold guarantee.

We Mold It

We take that mold and use plastic injection to produce your plastic products. In the molding process, injection molding machines force liquid resin into the mold cavity to form the part. Pioneer currently operates 22 modern plastic injection molding machines ranging from 75-ton to 880-ton clamp force.

We Inspect It

Pioneer utilizes a rigorous quality control system when testing plastic products for defects or imperfections. Only the highest quality plastic molded parts will be packaged after the quality control testing process.​ All molds at Pioneer Plastics are on a preventative maintenance schedule between production runs, so your mold always stays in excellent condition.

We Ship It

With a geographically centrally-located headquarters, we ship your finalized plastic products directly to your consumers and retail partners. Our 50,000+ square foot production and distribution facility is located in the heart of the Midwest, just a few hours from Indianapolis, St. Louis, Louisville, and Nashville. We have excellent access to all major transportation networks, allowing us to ship your custom plastic parts efficiently.

You Love It

Once you’ve worked with Pioneer, you won’t want to work with anyone else. As a turnkey injection molder, we’re equipped to handle every step of the plastic fabrication process.

What is Injection Molding?

Plastic Injection molding is the forming and creation of a plastic part by heating plastic materials into a mold. Pioneer’s injection molding process was created with simplification in mind. We believe every product should offer a user-friendly, intuitive design that can be manufactured economically and still work for your application.

“There is a Reason for the Resin.” We use the highest quality materials. From commodity grades to engineered thermoplastics, our engineering team will pick the best material for your project.

Our Sales and Engineering teams have over 175 years of combined expertise in project management and plastic part manufacturing. Our industry experts are more than capable of educating you on the design and manufacturing process so that you feel comfortable making the decision to move forward with custom injection molding. We take pride in our personal relationships with our customers, many of which have been with us for over 30 years.

Proprietary Products

Pioneer offers numerous additional plastics design and production services to our customers. All of our products are made from the highest quality materials available.

Additional Capabilities

Additional services allow you to achieve many different customizations for your custom plastic parts. Molding machines can be used to achieve stunning graphics, smooth finishes, and other effects quickly and accurately.

Packaging – Our crystal clear packaging allows your custom molded products to be seen with fantastic detail and clarity. If our in-stock plastic packaging does not fit your needs, Pioneer can design and build a custom product for your application. In addition, many consumers are more likely to recycle packaging made of plastic instead of paper or cardboard.​

Insert Molding – Insert molding creates a single molded piece by injecting a rigid plastic resin over another material, typically metal. This creates a part that is typically stronger than one created by joining separate pieces together.

Assembly – Pioneer has the ability to perform many forms of assembly for complex products. Starting with a design, engineering utilizes available complex equipment & custom plastic fabrication to move your idea from concept to reality in an automated fashion.​

Service Molding – We offer superior service and quick turnarounds on replacement service parts. We are the #1 supplier of aftermarket plastic injection products to the appliance industry.​
