Fostering Long-Term Partnerships

Cost Structure

We work with customers to discuss in detail the following costs: direct and indirect labor, material, manufacturing and process, and general overhead.

Management Capability

We know that the competitiveness of a supplier is highly dependent upon the quality of the management. To help you evaluate management we’re prepared to review both our management strategy and experience in general and commitments to total quality management, continuous improvement, employee development, technological innovation and investments, and supply chain management in particular.

Quality Systems & Philosophy

At Itasca Plastics, quality begins in the early stages of design and continues throughout the entire manufacturing process, providing an overview of our quality management process, which include  certifications and safety and training procedures.
