Our Services

At Decatur Mold, we are known primarily for plastic injection molding services. Founded in 1966, we were originally a tool and die machining shop.

In the last 50 years we grew from a five-man team to an organization of more than 100 employees. Starting from a 2,400 square foot space, we now occupy a state-of-the-art 87,000 square foot facility. As we expanded, so did our capabilities and services.

Services from Decatur

Today, we perform the quality tool and die machining that we started with. Using computer numerical controlled (CNC) mills and other advanced machinery, no design is beyond our capabilities. We also utilize nine injection molding machines of varying tonnage for injection molding capacities.

Aside from tool building and injection molding, we also offer a range of valuable services. These include:

Injection Molding

With nine injection molding presses onsite ranging from 72 to 946 ton capacity, 13 dryers, RJG certified technicians, and project managers, Decatur is well-equipped to support all your injection molding needs.

With a  facility of 87,000 square feet for production, climate control, 24/7 assistance, we do everything we can to ensure the quality of your tool.
