Injection Molding and Moldmaking with Surgical Precision 

Matrix Outdoor SignMatrix Plastic Products, located just outside of Chicago, Illinois, is a world leader in plastic injection molding, moldmaking, and manufacturing of precision products for the medical device, electronics, personal care and other high performance industries.

Matrix Plastic Products operates in a 30,000 square-foot facility in the Chicago suburb of Wood Dale, Illinois, 15 minutes from O'Hare International Airport. We currently employ more than 100 talented team members, serving customers around the world.

In the Beginning

Matrix Plastic Products began operations in 1978 as Matrix Tooling. We started with seven employees and a rich family tradition of moldmaking craftsmanship. As our business grew based upon customer referrals, our reputation for precision, flexibility, and responsiveness allowed us to expand into injection molding in 1994.

By 2000 we were running volume molding production in a facility that had doubled in size.  Our state-of-the-art quality inspection lab and ISO Class 8 cleanroom further enhanced our capabilities to serve our customers.

State-of-the-Art Quality Inspection Lab

Our advanced metrology laboratory features the latest in vision, touch probe, and laser inspection technology, giving us accurate data quickly and efficiently.

"Matrix is easily considered our best supplier. They continuously offer the highest quality molding and take great pride in their work. Their quality department is second to none and offers us more services than any other supplier. The relationship is more of a partnership on the product than just a service provided."

 – Y.L., R&D Engineer,
Medical Device Customer

Our Quality Policy

Matrix Plastic Products Quality LabWe continually monitor the effectiveness of our quality management system (QMS) through internal audits, management reviews, and customer feedback. We are fully committed to continual improvement and exceeding our customers' expectations.

Our Quality Policy states:

Matrix Plastic Products combines traditional craftsmanship, technical expertise, state-of-the-art technology, and GMPs to manufacture high precision plastic injection molded components and mold tooling.

We will continue to meet our customers’ expectations and support their compliance with regulatory requirements by continually improving our processes, procedures and employee training, thereby ensuring consistent quality in our products and services.

We have incorporated the additional documentation, risk analysis, and recordkeeping requirements of ISO 13485:2016 into our QMS for the manufacturing, inspection and validation of medical device components.

Why ISO 13485?

Although Matrix is not a “specifications developer” of medical devices, our design engineers are often involved with our customers’ groundbreaking devices during the development stages. Our customers often designate us as a critical supplier on their projects, so we modeled our quality management system to comply with the ISO 13485:2016 standard for medical devices. We are equipped to provide full traceability and device history quality records to meet applicable regulatory requirements.
