Some of the world’s biggest brands trust and work with us.

Unrivaled Plastic Injection Molding Expertise in the Automotive Industry

Our expertise in chrome plating and wheel trims, along with our two-shot plastic injection molding capabilities, allow us to provide turnkey solutions that support customers in bringing their products to market successfully. Some of our interior capabilities include anodized paint; decorative aluminum; film insert molding; grain and paint; hydrographics; and mold in color. As a full-service supplier, our program management model follows strict 5-Phase Gate Audits for both technical and commercial elements to ensure deliverables are met, if not exceeded.

We have years of plastic injection molding experience and our presses range in capacity from 25 tons to 3,000 tons.

We provide insert molding, over-molding, and two-shot molding services for various OEM clients. We build our tools in-house and tool transfers between any of our plants can be achieved with ease due to our company-wide standardization. Our quick-tool change model provides an 11-minute period from the time of the last hit of one part, to the production qualification of the next.

We offer several options such as multiple surface finishes, pad printing, 1K and 2K painting to meet your final decorative requirements.

Our Synchronous Transfer Press Line delivers decorative or functional type parts in either aluminum or steel with blank size capability up to 17″ x 12″ x 0.030″. Through our unique in-line finishing operations, we’re able to provide various decorative appearances such as brush, lathe, or bright with a final acrylic powder top coat for surface protection. In addition to multiple surface finishes, EG TranSpire can offer 1,2 or 3 color pad printing for decoration enhancement as well as decorative emblems and trim. We also offer 1K or 2K painting that may cover the entire part or masked for selective locations. 

We’ve created an innovative plastic chrome plating technique that will enhance the value of your product.

As a key core process at EG TranSpire, we offer chrome plating on plastic parts in either bright or satin finishes. With our automated process and large plating tanks we plate parts for some of the largest applications in North America, including Class 3 and larger truck grilles. Plating is typically done on ABS and PC+ABS resins. We use electroless copper plating processes and auxiliary anode technology to maximize adhesion and provide superior performance. Our Auxiliary Anode Technology provides consistent plate coverage for surfaces with challenging part geometry. Secondary finishing operations can also be performed on your part such as heat staking and sonic welding, as well as decorating with emblems and trim.

Utilizing value stream analysis, lean manufacturing principles, and Total Quality Management, EG TranSpire can provide the optimum assembly process for any application.

We have several years assembly experience from single fastener parts and several plastic sub-components welded together, to highly visible polycarbonate lens, and clean room assembled and packaged components. Joining components can be accomplished with RF, ultrasonic welding or heat staking, depending on your needs. Components such as metal threaded inserts can be vibration-inserted to provide for faster assembly. Whether a simple manual assembly or a highly automated, multi-assembly process, EG TranSpire will provide you a quality product at a value driven price. With our manufacturing flexibility, we have the ability to handle both high and low volume production runs.
