Scope of work

Harvey Water Softeners have implemented huge changes in their manufacturing process over the past few years. They are using the latest technology to make big innovations in their production process, and they have big plans for the future too. They decided to focus on their core capabilities – the manufacturing of water softeners. They do not have their own injection moulding machines to manufacture the necessary plastic components for their water softeners, and have decided to outsource the plastic injection moulding production to WSM Plastics.

Harvey Water Softeners is the expert in the production of water softeners and WSM Plastics is an expert in tool making and injection moulding production which makes an ideal partnership.
