PARTNERS! Sapona Plastics is a joint venture between Sapona Manufacturing and the Lail family, previous owners of a very successful molding business in North Carolina. It's a great combination of financial strength and plastics experience. But most importantly, it's a great partnership with you the customer.
FAST! Modern electric and hydraulic injection molding presses ranging in size from 55 to 720 Ton insure consistent production. Multiple high speed assembly machines and robotics handle complex jobs. Secondary process and packaging capabilities are designed to meet each customers requirements. Quick response is provided with experience and resources to meet most any need from design to distribution. We are centrally located on the East coast at the center of the nation's 2nd largest interstate highway network. Plus we operate 24 hours a day so you can sleep soundly knowing we'll have your order to you on time.
RELIABLE! You can trust our quality because our processes are compliant with GMP, ISO13485 and ISO 9000 quality system standards and we have highly trained personnel, including formerly certified quality engineers, technicians, and auditors. We pride ourselves on honesty and integrity. You can be confident that significant changes will not be made without your approval, and we will do what we say or we'll let you know immediately.
LOW COST! Sapona Plastics' philosophy is to provide service and value to our customers. We back this up with highly efficient manufacturing operations and very attractive pricing. North Carolina is a right to work state and the region's labor pool is the 10th most cost effective in the nation. Our power reliability and cost are among the nation's best, and we achieve even lower rates through our peak shaving program. Our maintenance program keeps molds in top condition and we provide expert project management on tooling purchases, repairs and refurbishments.
