With over 35+ years in the injection mold making world Pat Smith has seen firsthand the shift away from making most molds in the West, to the offshore jurisdictions that now deliver the majority of the world’s injection molds. Pat also witnessed very early on how many problems came with this shift, travel problems, communication problems, quality problems, and engineering problems. Knowing that there had to be a better way forward Pat founded Jade Group International (Jade Molds) in 2006 to solve these offshore injection mold making problems with a simple mission in mind: Deliver Western quality offshore injection molds, to Western injection molders, at highly competitive offshore pricing, so that they can compete globally, retain part production in their home country, and grow their business. The approach that Pat takes at Jade to deliver on his mission includes investing in and leveraging first-in-class software technology solutions like Moldex3D (paired with great engineers) to highly qualify mold designs. As well as having Western mold builders and QC teams who live and work in the jurisdictions where Jade is making molds. Pat’s Western methodology approach to offshore mold making delivers on quality, price, and customer retention.
