Wepco Plastics

Value Stream Mapping Helps Reduce Lead Time

Wepco Plastics is a specialty provider of plastic injection molded parts and rapid aluminum tooling. Wally Parmelee launched the company in his basement during the early 1980s and it’s been family owned and operated ever since. The family run business has forged a culture that focuses on ensuring customer satisfaction.

Their well-earned reputation is to continually work on producing the highest quality, American made products by investing in process improvement, training and equipment that meets their customer’s needs. The core of what they do is all about innovation which is critical to mold making and plastic injection molding operations.

Wepco is an integral part of the product design, development and production process, helping their customers bring new products to market. Through hard work, state-of-the-art machinery, and extensive experience the company delivers quality, cost-effective products, on-time and on-schedule.

After evaluating our mold making process and identifying improvement opportunities, we’ve significantly reduced our overall lead time and improved first pass yield. With our improved workflow, we’re able to get jobs out quicker.
