Customer Focus

For over 50 years, there is simply no more important value at Matrix Tool than customer satisfaction. We fully realize that for Matrix Tool to succeed, our products and services must satisfy our customer’s requirements completely. Every day on the job, each employee at Matrix Tool is challenged to provide exceptional service and produce a work product with zero defects.

Your team’s level of service is a differentiator among custom manufacturers.

Metrics That Matter

Matrix takes Continuous Improvement to a whole other level with our focus on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs).  Each Manager at Matrix reports on Business Metrics during our weekly, quarterly and annual meetings.   More than a dozen major KPI’s are tracked and acted upon regularly, and posted throughout the plant for review by all team members.  In addition, there are dozens of other KPI projects that are implemented throughout each business year to proactively drive continuous improvements and preventive actions.

KPI Chart

More Than a Box to Check

It’s not uncommon for Matrix to implement 50 - 100 KPI projects in a given year. Tracking our KPI’s helps us to focus on achieving both customer driven objectives and planned, company-initiated goals as part of our continuous improvement process. Some of the main KPI’s we track include On-Time Delivery, Internal Reject Rates, Customer Delivered Part Quality (PPM), Capacity Trends, Quality Scores, Unscheduled Downtime, and Vendor On-Time Delivery to name a few. We are committed to continuous improvement and work to proactively manage our operation to ensure that our major KPI’s trend in a positive direction.

Technology Keys to Success

Matrix has adopted a plant wide use of in-mold, RJG technology. We have RJG certified master molders on site who train all our molding processors, technicians and quality staff as well. Matrix uses RJG, decoupled-3 technology—which provides the greatest control of the process and part quality. Before the mold opens we already know if a good part is being produced. These closed loop systems are also equipped with part diverters in the event molding parameters are exceeded during the molding cycle. These real-time systems provide real-time performance you can depend on.

What’s In It for You?

The end result of our Continuous Improvement and KPI tracking is to provide our customers with extremely high levels of Quality and Service. At Matrix, we always work to find better ways to manufacture product, to work together, and to understand and service our customer’s needs. We strive for complete customer satisfaction and continuous improvement. We know these form the foundation for a long and prosperous relationship with our customers!

I can certainly say that our relationship with Matrix Tool has been a true partnership.

— Randy, Plant Manager

Send Us Your Biggest Challenge

Most customers or prospective customers come to us because Matrix has a reputation for building Tools and Molding Parts that other injection molders simply aren’t equipped to handle. As we review your project, we will work to understand your requirements and suggest alternate approaches for designing and manufacturing the Injection Mold needed for your project to be successful. Our competitive advantage in the marketplace is our technical strength across all departments.

More Than You Ask For

With over a dozen degreed Plastics Engineers, supported by skilled Journeyman Tool Makers and experienced Production Staff members, we are able to draw from a wealth of knowledge and experience for the benefit of our customers. We would not be considered a “strategic” supplier by many of our customers if we only gave them what they asked for. We are confident to offer alternate suggestions that will bring your product to market quicker, and often times with less complexity. Bigger and more complex isn’t better, better is better.

If you always do what you always did, you’ll always get what you always got.
