Plastikos & Micro Mold

Make the Impossible.

A foundation of service, advanced engineering, quality and delivery since 1978.

Community Involvement

Today, the exchange of ideas and the ability to partner with other industry professionals is vital to any community. Micro Mold and Plastikos continue to develop strong ties with other tool making and injection molding companies within the greater Northwest Pennsylvania region through our involvement in the local Society of Plastics Engineers (SPE) chapter. Fortunately, Northwest Pennsylvania has deep roots to the tool making and injection molding industry, so there is always new material being presented at these monthly SPE meetings.

We also play an active role in shaping the future of the plastics industry through practical internships offered to Plastics Engineering Technology students at Penn State-Erie. Furthermore, we are active members of Penn State’s Plastics Alumni Advisory Board, where our Manufacturing Manager provides real-world knowledge to guide up-and-coming engineers. In addition to these strong ties with Penn State, Plastikos also engages in cutting-edge research and development partnerships with faculty and students. Our hands-on involvement with Penn State has resulted in many industry advancements, which in turn have benefited our customers.

Additionally, Micro Mold and Plastikos realize our responsibility to our local community. We are a corporate sponsor for many local non-profit events and athletic teams throughout our history. Additionally, we donate countless hours of our personal time every year with many local community organizations as Board members and volunteers.
