How do I find a good factory? I want to find a source of injected moulded parts.

ANSWER:

You will have no problem finding a list of potential suppliers of injected plastics in China if you visit a comprehensive resource like www.GlobalSources.com. But it may be a bit more difficult to select the right one out of a large group of potential suppliers. To help with this dilemma, I would like to suggest you check out an article I wrote on this subject.  Hope you find it useful.
