10 Reasons to Add Xcentric as an Approved Vendor for Rapid Manufacturing
Instead of choosing the same three vendors for your next quote, give Xcentric a try! We’re the #2 rapid manufacturing company in the USA. And we’d like the opportunity to earn your trust for rapid manufacturing services.
Here are 10 reasons to consider Xcentric for plastic injection molding, CNC machining, and 3D printing.
1. We achieve your design intent – Practically no Geometry Limits
We will not force your design to fit our process.
Like most product designers and engineers, you don’t just want plastic parts fast. Instead, you want your custom plastic injection-molded products produced to exact requirements, on time and on budget.
Xcentric is not a transactional plastic injection molding company. We take a relationship-based approach to fully understand your expectations. This enables us to determine the most cost- and time-efficient method for achieving your design intent. We will never force your design to fit our process.
As your preferred vendor for rapid manufacturing, we’ll collaborate with you, your team, and third-party vendors you are working with to bring your concepts to life.
The first job was fast, accurate and met all of our expectations enabling us to go to market on time!
2. Domestic vendor for plastic injection molding
Made and located entirely in the USA, Since 1997
The pandemic of 2020 exposed the fragility of the global supply chain. It showed us the risk of relying too heavily on overseas vendors. And it left businesses scrambling to find domestic suppliers with capacity to help keep their doors open.

Building a sustainable supply chain for rapid manufacturing is more important than ever. Adding a domestic vendor like Xcentric can help mitigate the risk of unexpected events.
Xcentric is headquartered in Clinton Township, Michigan with a second facility in Shelby Township, Michigan.
