Injection
Molding

It starts with a concept and ends with finished product.

What happens in between is what sets Buffalo Manufacturing apart. From cost effective design to finished product production, Buffalo Manufacturing is your partner in engineering plastic components. Our injection molding capabilities offer fast turnaround on design services and production of custom components and molds for applications across all industries.

Value Stream Manufacturing (VSM)

The foundation of Buffalo Manufacturing VSM services is our experience and partnering abilities in six key areas of manufacturing expertise:

  1. Tool design and build
  2. Tool & die support
  3. Quality systems (AS9100C)
  4. Manufacturing capability
  5. Marketing
  6. Customer service

At Buffalo Manufacturing, injection molding is more than plastic and machines. It is the culmination of all the facets of the Value Stream Manufacturing (VSM) model. A molded product takes flight long before plastic gets put into a machine, with a process that includes:

  • Material selection
  • Mold design
  • Mold making
  • Part design
  • Quality plan
  • Manufacturing expertise
  • Customer service

We have the range of molding capacities and capabilities to meet your needs. From CNC machining, sonic sealing, hot stamping and decorating to assembly and packaging, we’re with you every step of the way.
