Raleigh Precision Products (RPP) recently showed off their capabilities and examples of the products they manufacture for North Carolina State Rep. Larry Strickland.

RPP, in business for over 50 years, is a full-service injection molder just outside of Raleigh, NC.  Operating more than 30 injection molding machines, they’re capable of manufacturing small parts like key grips, and larger pieces like air filter frames and tool boxes. Over the years, they’ve increased in size and operations by investing in 3D printers for prototyping products, and improving efficiencies in shop floor operations. Their success over the years has meant steady growth in both business and facility size, with more growth expected just over the horizon.

Rep. Strickland is serving his first term in the North Carolina legislature and sits on important committees focused on appropriations and the environment. This was his first visit to a plastics manufacturing facility, which gave him a perfect introduction to the many steps involved in turning raw plastic resin into a useful product. He, like other legislators PLASTICS has engaged with, was interested in hearing what the host company is doing to thrive in today’s environment, and how it is preparing for the future by searching for a skilled workforce.

RPP and PLASTICS both look forward to continued engagement with Rep. Strickland to advance the plastics industry.
