Tooling as a vital in-house competence

Primo is more than just a supplier of extruded profiles. Primo also has its own inhouse tooling centre, developing and designing the correct extrusion tools for new profiles – often improving on the customers’ ideas and making time-to-market faster.

Engineering and tooling competences for plastic extrusion

At the onset of a new product development project, our customers have the option of teaming up with tooling specialists from Primo’s inhouse tooling centre in the very early phases. Staffed by experienced engineers, designers and technicians, Primo’s tooling centre is actually an international collaboration between various Primo locations and factories across Europe and in China.

Allan Larsen is Primo’s Group Director of Technology and Supply Chain. He explains: 

“Not all plastic profile producers run their own tooling centre, but we see it as a tremendous advantage for us and for our customers, as well. It makes time-to-market much faster, it improves our customers’ products and it ensures that we get it right the first time.”​
