With in-house engineering, tool making, injection molding, and post molding operations, China Array is fully accountable to its customers. The company controls the manufacturing process from original design through finished product to insure comprehensive quality control and intellectual property protection.
Since China Array specializes in high performance polymers, its suppliers are the premier resin companies in the world: material certifications provided for each PO. Every subsequent step in the manufacturing process is also fully documented.
From engineering review to 3D modeling to prototypes to tooling to production, the feedback loop between China Array and its customer is critical and continues for the life of the project.
China Array Plastics LLC is a US company. It executes contracts and Nondisclosure Agreements under US law, which cover its injection molding facility in Wuhan: a 100% owned subsidiary.
While no company can guarantee 100% IP protection, China Array by understanding the issues involved, being headquartered in the US, maintaining internal fire-walls, getting good legal advice, and having a geographic buffer from China's coastal areas, can assure it customers with a relatively high level of certainty that their intellectual property is being protected.
China Array's upper management has a unique blend of quality control experience specific to both China and plastics.
