What MEA had to say: A change from building plastic mould tools to die casting has paid off for Diecasting Solutions.
They have proved that word of mouth marketing and efficient manufacturing are still a recipe for success. Co-Director of Diecasting Solutions (NZ) Ltd David Dale says that, "A lack of knowledge of the die casting industry has made it difficult to attain funding for new machines".
But despite this and little marketing effort, they have managed to expand business. Products vary from angle brackets, to LPG bottle screws, fence strainers. The journey for Diecasting Solutions started in the back of an old North Shore factory. Mr Dale had identified an absence of players in the Australasian die casting industry and set about converting a plastic moulding machine into a die casting machine. From there word of mouth has lifted demand to the point where four machines are now used.
