Windshield Washer Container for Gas Stations
(click on thumbnail to enlarge)
EnviCor Enterprises LLC Incorporated, an expert in rotory molded product development, was tasked by a retail petroleum industry customer to manufacture an existing molded product. Seeking better value and production quality, the customer challenged them to provide a higher level of service, shortened lead times, an improved price point and implementation of a KanBan program.
Their work for this project is centered on multiple color windshield washer fluid containers used at gas stations and convenience stores. EnviCor transforms this medium density polyethylene design to work well with their signature rotory molding approach, which is better suited for hollow cast products than other approaches. Graphics and mold inserts are worked into this production process to accommodate mounting hardware. The final design, with modifications, includes dimensions of 12” x 10” x 5” and tolerances of ± 1/32.”
In addition to manufacturing, EnviCor now manages assembly, packaging, and distribution for this customer. Product orders of 122 to 224 units are delivered on two week turnarounds. Their diverse product experience, in combination with a competent plastic molding approach, creates a solution delivering marked improvements in speed, price, and inventory management over the customer’s previous fabrication provider.
