The Elephant in the Room


Our parent company Latem Industries has always prided itself at being a real problem solver when it comes to servicing Ontario's manufacturing industry. No argument here!


Plastico Industries has been known to put out a few fires of their own. A number of years back we spent countless hours in our boardroom with Engineers from our customer, a Tier One Auto supplier, as well as a number of Engineers from our customer's customer. Make sense? Our customer's customer just happened to be representing one of Canada's top automotive assembly plants.


The problem,......after quite some time in full production mode, service reports began to surface of a wear and vibration issue within a specific line of vehicles. An initial decision was made to sit on it and hope it went away, but after a short period of time, the condition only got worse, which brings us back to our boardroom.


Plastico jumped on board with a solution that solved both issues with one dipping process. Our nylon coating provided superior wear ratings, while also removing the vibration concern. To top it off, even though appearance wasn't a concern, our nylon coating provided a consistent and attractive finish.


A few years later, and Plastico Industries continues to deliver that very same solution to the same customer on a regular basis.
