  • Haida: Toolots Provides Comprehensive Solution for Large Plastic Injection Machine Manufacturer

    CERRITOS, Calif. – May 1, 2017 – With the guidance of Toolots, China’s second-largest manufacturer of plastic injection molding machines has developed a new brand of industrial equipment specifically for the U.S. manufacturing market. Haida, through its new brand Himalia for American customers, has begun manufacturing modern plastic injection molding machines built to U.S. specifications, voltage and other requirements. Machines are also custom-built at their state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities in China, where more than 400 employees work to produce quality machinery to meet increasing global demand.

    Toolots has helped develop Haida's new brand, cross-border strategy and its products for the U.S. market from the very beginning, and Haida executives said during a recent site visit they are optimistic about the future.

    Haida is the second-largest manufacturer of plastic injection molding machines in China.

    Before partnering with Toolots in July 2016, Haida had limited international sales outside of Asia, the Middle East and Africa, according to Sean Xiao, Haida’s foreign trade executive. The U.S. market always caught their eye, he said, but it would have been expensive modifying existing models to match American specifications.

    “How would we get the customers, and second, how would we provide after-sales service? These are two points that stopped us from getting into the U.S. market. And you solved this problem for us,” Xiao said.

    Toolots engineers, based in Cerritos at the company’s headquarters, are currently training on Haida’s latest machines at their Ningbo factory to develop extensive product knowledge – all to provide better after-sales service and machine maintenance to American customers. Haida unveiled a new robotic system that nearly doubles production speed using their machines, according to Xiao, and is training Toolots engineers on the technology.

    A member of the California-based Toolots engineering team builds and trains on a robotic device that greatly improves production speed to better serve U.S. customers.

    Toolots helped Haida establish its legal, registered entity in the U.S., Himalia, and assists with ongoing branding and marketing efforts. The Toolots public relations/marketing and graphic design teams developed Himalia’s brand and provide critical market research data that guides Himalia in providing machinery that is in greatest demand domestically, and important specifications to match various state voltage requirements.

    The Toolots team toured one of Haida's sprawling, modern factories during a recent visit to eastern China. Its cross-border business development and public relations/marketing team, headed by Toolots Director of Global Commerce Services Grant Montgomery and Director of Public Affairs Chris Foy on the U.S. side, and Product Manager Tony Chen with Toolots China, examined each step of Haida manufacturing process. The Toolots team met with Xiao in Ningbo to discuss future output and the impact of increased cooperation between China and the U.S. to provide highly engineered machinery at competitive prices.

    “When we started our international trade, the U.S. was not our focus because if we sold there, we’d have had to change a lot out of the machines; it would take a lot of time and be very expensive to do that,” Xiao said. “With this new thinking (and partnership with Toolots), we are taking this time to develop another standalone machine, and we will be able to sell more machines.”

    In late 2016, Toolots Chief Executive Officer and Founder Jason Fu signed an agreement with Haida's chief executive Jiang Zhongding to partner with the company, the second-largest manufacturer of plastic injection molding machines in China, to enter the U.S. market. Before partnering with Toolots, Haida’s product reach included Southeast and Central Asia, South America and 10 other countries, but the company saw an opportunity in expanding foreign sales. Haida's chief executive pointed out during the July 2016 signing ceremony that cooperation is essential to expand not only the international influence and reach of industrial manufacturing enterprises, but also to help solve the traditional manufacturing industry’s lack of effective online sales.

    The agreement with Toolots was the first of its kind entered by Haida, according to Zhongding. Haida is utilizing Toolots as a complete warehousing logistics solution for fulfillment, after-sales machinery maintenance provider, and Toolots works directly with U.S. customers to sell, market, distribute and service Haida and Himalia’s plastic injection molding machines.

    Haida Foreign Trade Executive Sean Xiao discusses how the company's machines can create finished products like this one, faster than competing companies.

    As the product development and engineering processes at Haida wrap up and, both companies are training and testing the machinery to ensure American customers have the best possible experience with the industrial manufacturing equipment. Feedback from U.S. manufacturers will guide future efforts, and Toolots’ engineering team can provide service nationwide to ensure machinery is up and running.

    “We feel it’s a great opportunity, this partnership with Toolots. In the future, I think we will have a lot of work,” Xiao said.

  • Toolots Visits Konger Plastic Injection Molding Machine Factory in Ningbo

    Konger, based in Ningbo, China, manufacturers highly engineered machines

    NINGBO, China – April 18, 2017 – Toolots, Inc. leadership and its business development and public affairs team visited with the operators of a manufacturing facility in China that produces highly innovative plastic injection molding machines - all made using the finest Austrian-built components. The meeting with Konger, based in the city of Ningbo, was part of an ongoing trade mission to eastern China to connect with new potential suppliers of industrial products to the American manufacturing market.

    Toolots China Chief Operating Officer Mason Wang, Toolots US COO Raymond Cheng and Jerry Qi, Konger General Manager, discuss the company's latest machinery

    Konger produces a wide range of lines of plastic injection molding machines. Their signature machine, part of the Konger Chameleon series, has the ability to mix two to three different colors in endless combinations and its injection technology reduces deferment within the mold itself, lending to much longer mold lifespan.

    The high-tech factory has the capability to produce about 50 to 60 new machines per month, said Konger North America Sales Director Lawrence Song, adding that demand for these products is high; their customers come from all over the world, from the United States to Malaysia. Konger General Manager Jerry Qi said that he would put his machines up against any competitors, confident in their state-of-the-art technology and the highly engineered components within the injection system.

    Konger GM Jerry Qi explains what sets his plastic injection molding machines apart from the competition

    “Our specialty is producing machines using the latest technology designed in Austria,” Song said during the meeting, before taking Toolots through their production facility in the outskirts of Ningbo. The Chameleon Series, Song said, “mixes two or three colors so that each plastic product comes out in uniform size and shape,” but when complete each item comes out with a unique look unlike the others.

    Toolots Plastic Injection Molding Engineer Gary Krause explains the function of a Konger machine

    Toolots US Chief Operating Officer Raymond Cheng, Toolots China Chief Operating Officer Mason Wang, Director of Global Commerce Services Grant Montgomery, Plastic Injection Molding Machine Engineer Gary Krause, Product Manager Tony Chen and Director of Public Affairs Chris Foy attended the meeting, as well as other representatives from the Ningbo-based manufacturer. Konger is considering joining the Toolots online marketplace to specifically reach the American manufacturing consumer, providing quality machines at competitive prices using the latest European-engineered technology.

    Toolots toured the company's manufacturing facility, inspecting each stage of the manufacturing process for a wide range of machines. Konger machines are capable of producing plastic products of all types and sizes, from handles for disposable razors that blend two-to-three colors to cups of various thickness and much more. As part of the company’s comprehensive testing process, machines are run dry through a transformer prior to packing to ensure operation is at peak levels.

    Toolots continues to meet with industrial manufacturers during its trade mission to China, and will have additional announcements in the coming days about additions to the California-based online marketplace’s expanding product line.
