Hockey Puck Holder
As a reputable and responsive plastics manufacturer, at Midwest Plastics, an entrepreneur in the sports memorabilia market approached us with a time-sensitive, budget-conscious challenge. This customer designed a unique wall mounted hockey puck holder that enables fans to display a single hockey puck or make a custom arrangement of all their favorite hockey pucks on any vertical surface. Our initial contact took place on January 3, and there was a hard deadline for product delivery of March 7, the date of the Let’s Play Hockey Expo in St. Paul, Minnesota.
We enjoy a challenge. Our team worked very closely and collaboratively with the customer from the onset to finalize a design we could mold at the right price within the time constraints. Since the customer was in Nevada, over the next several weeks we communicated back and forth over the phone and through email to satisfactorily work out all of the details. On February 1, we delivered the mold design to the toolmaker, who expedited the build and had it back to us on February 27, which was only eight days to the deadline.
February 27 was a busy day – we loaded the tooling on the molding press, ran samples, and shipped them overnight. The customer approved them the very next day, and production launched immediately. We completed the run on March 1, and the customer picked them up at our facility on their way to the Expo. In a matter of 47 days, we helped this customer transform their idea into a successful product, and they were very impressed with both our active response and the quality of the product.
