Since 1946, A1 Tool Corporation has built a strong reputation for quality injection molds (moulds). With our advanced technologies, years of experience, and hands on relationship with our customers, we have earned a leadership role in the plastics industry. We deliver proven performance with large, multiple cavity, action, thin wall and specialty designs including stack and tandem molds. Project managers work with the customer from first inquiry to completion, to ensure continuity and success.
Our manufacturing capacity and latest technology work together for optimal efficiency. In-house design, manufacturing and mold sampling ensures accurate parts with the productivity you need.
As our CEO Geoff Luther said, “Based on old fashioned business integrity combined with state-of-the-industry plastic injection mold technology, we are able to produce the highest quality molds.”
Together, we mold the future in plastics.
