We at Plastic Components, Inc. are proud to announce that we have received US Patent No. 8,827,674 B1. This patent is in recognition of our state of the art, "lights out" manufacturing process at Bunsen Drive. The manufacturing design allows for a central material handling system to transport the raw material to the injection molding machines and for automatic conveyors to move product from the machines to the warehouse without the need for any human operators. The building represents one of only a few “lights-out” manufacturing facilities in the world with the capability of running 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, while producing 400,000,000 defect-free parts since its opening in 2011.
Plastic Components, Inc. was named one of the Top Ten Places to Work in the plastics industry by Plastics News. The announcement came at the Plastics News Executive Forum held in Las Vegas. This is the second straight year PCI has been named one of the top places to work within the industry.

Plastic Components, Inc. is proud to announce the arrival and implementation of a new 400 Ton Toyo Injection Molding machine. This is the second 400 Ton press within the facility. A is the standard at Plastic Components, the press will be part of a fully automated manufacturing cell. This is the fundamental premise behind the manufacturing strategy at PCI. Using state of the art robotics and conveyors, we are able to sell components to our customers with no direct labor. This allows PCI to produce defect free parts at globally competitive pricing.
InJune of 2014, we retired one of our longest standing and operating injection molding presses. Press 18 had produced over 100,000,000 components during her tenure and was one of the most reliable machines in our facility. However, after over a decade of service, it was time to invest in a replacement.
