We design and manufacture the components that give each automotive interior its unique character. Our commitment to innovation informs every aspect of our business. It’s a mindset and a strategy.
We promise our customers that we’ll be creative in our approach to design and engineering, and proactive in our search for technologies that deliver more options and better efficiencies. And we’ll do that competitively, without sacrificing quality.
When a component is
well made, you feel it.
“Innovation inside” is a lot more than a slogan. It tells the story of what we do at Mitchell Plastics: make industry-leading components for automotive interiors. More importantly, “innovation inside” tells the story of who we are.
We have a passion for innovation. Instead of just repeating ourselves, we’re always looking for improvement, because that brings satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment.
Innovation is intrinsic to the way we run our business – our approach to problem-solving; our design and engineering methodology; our manufacturing technologies. Innovation is a source of pride, and it’s the foundation for our growth.
