The automotive sector requires components that are lightweight, efficient and easy to mass produce. Thankfully, this is where Dudley Associates excels.

How We Help the Automotive Industry

With the general consensus being that metals are clunky and expensive, the automotive sector quickly moved away from producing its components using these materials and pivoted towards plastics instead. This is because they are more lightweight, easier to mass-produce and greatly improve fuel efficiency.

The need to manufacture identical products on a mass scale in particular has made plastic injection moulding using a tool the most prevalent way to create parts.

As experts in the field, you can rely on Dudley Associates to produce components that are both robust and flexible, something which benefits the automotive industry greatly. We can also use a vast range of colours and finishes, meaning we are able to meet your requirements – whatever they might be. We’ll also support you at every stage of the manufacturing process.

    “We were working with Dudley on a complex component that also involved another supplier, almost at the end of the development cycle the 2nd supplier let us down. John and the team at Dudley stepped in to rescue the project showing impressive technical ability and perseverance and leading us to a great end result.”

    I just wanted to share a quick note from myself and the team and let you know that we were delighted that you could meet both the costs and perhaps, more importantly, the timescale we had to work with. Very glad we decided to work with you again. It’s also worth mentioning that the support and advice that Dudley Associates provided to our design team while transitioning from their concept to the final tooling has been fantastic.”

    “We first approached Dudley to manufacture injection mould tools for us as we thought they offered excellent quality at a competitive price, and we were not disappointed. The tools are of excellent standard and delivered on time. Having had trouble free tools delivered, we now also take advantage of their in-house moulding facilities for small production run which again were completed on time without any problems.”
