Services Overview

In manufacturing, a good day means getting products out the door and keeping your customers happy. A bad day can happen any time you can’t find qualified workers to fill your orders and you – and your workforce — feel overwhelmed and overworked.

When you’ve used your resources to find knowledgeable workers and you’re still coming up short, we can help. As plastics industry recruiters, we’ll use our manufacturing experience and our industry-wide contacts to find productive employees who will meet your needs and fit your plant culture.

We’ll recruit qualified candidates with the plastics injection molding, heavy-gauge thermoforming or vacuum formed extrusion molding background you need, whether it’s products for OEMs, end users or a combination of the two. We’ll find the top candidates who will make an impact in your production and output for molding, extrusion or appropriate plastics processes.  

When you hire Top Candidate Recruiting, you’re getting the benefit of our 20-plus years in manufacturing. You don’t need to hold our hands and explain the basics. We know manufacturing as plastic executive recruiters and we speak the language. We can identify the right candidate when we see one.

Plastics Injection Molding Experience

We work with manufacturers who produce plastics for electronics, automotive, aerospace, medical devices, bottle and container industries.

We recruit plastic engineers, injection molding supervisors, polymer plant managers, product design engineers, injection mold processors, molding operators, program managers, plastics lab quality technicians, cable molding operators and plastic injection molding process engineers.

Because we’re plastic injection molding headhunters, we recruit top candidates to design, build and finish products, which result in meeting optimum quality and manufacturing process efficiencies.  

The Right Candidates

We’re plastics recruiters so we talk with candidates about their experience in plastics and process molding. We ask about their design knowledge and their experience building to exact specifications to meet the needs of the end user. We want to hear about how they develop or improve components and how they troubleshoot issues as they relate to blocking cavities including gating or cycle-time variations.

We ask about their experience with downstream processes like heat sealing and flow behavior. We also discuss their analytical and problem-solving skills with molding, extrusion or appropriate plastics processes.

As plastic injection molding recruiters, we ask questions and we listen carefully. We do all of this before you even see a resume. Once we have a pool of candidates that meet your specifications, we’ll start sending you resumes to review. We’ll look for feedback on your assessment of them. If it isn’t what you are looking for, feedback is critical so we can change our vetting process.

We do the work for you so you can focus on finished products.

Proven Process

Our industry knowledge is from personal experience. We’ve held multiple positions in manufacturing and worked with multi-cavity injection molding. We understand the skills and knowledge needed for a qualified workforce. The industry standard for the number of candidates interviewed to fill a position is 12. Our average is 3 per position.

We’re very resourceful as injection molding recruiters when we search for top candidates. We work with passive candidates as well as those who are currently looking to make a change. Many times, candidates contact us because they’ve heard our focus is manufacturing.

Our Promise To You

Eighty percent of our clients are repeat clients. We handle everything from the initial assignment through the final offer, and communicate every step of the way. If you hire a candidate who doesn’t work out, we offer a candidate replacement at no additional charge during a specific period.

We’re relentless in finding you the right candidate because our focus is manufacturing and engineering recruitment.
