Compression mold have worked with GlobalTeam and are extremely interested in growing their product sales through MWBE’s
There are a few of these SMC molders in China, mostly in the Shanghai area. These companies manufacture the tooling, design and manufacture the material, and also use compression molding to manufacture the parts.
