Case Study

After being left without a supplier of our main plastic component, we decided to source a supplier within Australia, being proud Australian manufacturers ourselves, we were surprised to find Ramjet right on our doorstep in Brisbane.

Comparing pricing & lead times with other Australian plastics suppliers we were happy that Ramjet came out on top on all points.

The people at Ramjet are always easy to talk to about our own product development & always know exactly how to achieve the best product for us.

Since the initial contact with Nigel & Grant we have added a number of new plastic components to our range without a hassle.

Key deliverables:
Design and Manufacture an injection moulding tool and produce components to replace a product that was currently on the market but not affordable due to the secondary processes involved to manufacture for end use.

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Large manufacturer of Roto moulding powders and suppliers of water tank ancillary components.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Design and produce 3 separate injection moulding tools to cover a range of sizes as required to enable a more efficient manufacturing process. The current component was manufactured using a secondary process which was labour intensive and in efficient to produce. This in turn meant the component was overpriced for the end use and influenced the sales of the component significantly.

HOW RAMJET PLASTICS HELPED

Identified all of the key criteria as required by the client and manufactured the 3 tools to service the range of sizes as required by the client. Our one process approach and design enabled the component to be manufactured substantially more efficiently which resulted in a much more marketable component which led to a large increase of volume and sales.

VALUE DELIVERED

Since the release and subsequent success of this first project some 10 years ago the client has continued to entrust us to undertake further projects for them which has lead to them being a preferred and recognised supplier of water tank components with a large variety of ancillary products.

Case Study


Key deliverables:
Manufacture and injection moulding tool and components to replace a product sourced offshore

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Manufacturer of aluminium skirtings used in a variety of commercial and residential dwellings.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Design and produce an injection moulding tool to meet the clients request to be supplied a quality component at a competitive price locally to replace their existing overseas supplier. The quality of components being supplied previously were becoming of poor standard and inconsistent from batch to batch.

HOW RAMJET PLASTICS HELPED

Identified all the key areas including quality and price to ensure all of the clients requirements were met which was a true challenge given the components were currently being produced offshore. Value added by way of designing a new component that would replace multiple parts and enable the client to hold fewer configurations of stock on their shelf to meet their own customers needs.

Produced an injection moulding tool and component as to coincide with a large project the client was undertaking in a Gold Coast high rise apartment complex.

VALUE DELIVERED

The client now has the opportunity to order and receive parts in a qty that is more flexible and pertains more to their specific needs rather then the bulk purchasing they had previously been committed to take. Since this first component we have been able to assist and put into production other components that have helped compliment their range of components that are manufactured locally.

Key deliverables:

Design and manufacture a plastic injection moulded component to better suit the clients needs for consistent quality at a competitive price. The injection moulded component converted a structural wooden component to plastic.

 

CLIENT BACKGROUND

Large Australian manufacturer of access systems in the construction of large commercial, industrial and residential premises.

BUSINESS CHALLENGE

Design and produce an injection moulded component to replace the existing plywood being used in flooring and walkways. The chosen material that had been previously used was becoming poor in quality and representing a major OHS risk along with logistically becoming an issue for the client

HOW RAMJET PLASTICS HELPED

Identified all the key areas including safety, quality and price to ensure all of the clients requirements were met. Value added by way of designing a unique clipping/assembly method which in turn saved the client considerable manufacturing and assembly time.

Produced the injection moulding tool and supplied quality injection moulded components that continues to exceed the clients expectations.

VALUE DELIVERED

We have now manufactured this component for over 5 yrs and have seen our client dramatically increase its potential which has led to ongoing opportunities in other areas within their business.

Currently still saving the client thousands of dollars within their organisation through being supplied a far superior and consistent component to the previously used one. Along with the labour savings being made through the ease of assembly for the client the project in their words has been a major success.
