Mission

Mission

 

Plastifix is compelled to create innovative ways to improve the quality of plastic repairs to create best in class production in both quality and cycle time, while significantly reducing plastic waste and the industry CO2 footprint.

Fast-changing OEM materials and manufacturing methods challenge the very best repair organizations. Other trends pass unnoticed, like the mass adoption of replacing plastic parts rather than repairing them. With this, more waste goes to the landfill, and the carbon footprint for the industry rises.

We can help shops repair rather than replace, driving down the time and cost involved in restoring a plastic part to pre-loss condition. At the same time, we are building a system to track the waste savings so it can be quantified. It is one thing a repairer can do to contribute to reducing the harmful impact of climate change from within our own industry.

Culture

With the Plastfix Mission comes the need to attract a certain type of person to our company. It is critical that they share our same motivation to find new ways to bring increased value to our customers, while caring about the environment in a meaningful way.

Since our founding, we have identified ways to draw the right kind of people to us. In return, our customers see a living example of our culture working in their shop executing the Plastfix Repair Process. While we strive to get even better at this, we are pleased to retain over 95% of our staff year over year.

By keeping our focus on the customer, listening to them as they navigate the tricky pathway of repairing today’s motor pool, Plastfix is able to extend our culture to compliment yours.

 

Innovation

Change is the only constant in the automotive aftermarket. New OEMs have emerged while others have consolidated or left. Plastics are emerging as a leading way for OEMs to remove weight from a car, truck, or SUV to meet fuel economy requirements.

Vehicles need to be repaired quickly and safely. Our methods for repairing damaged plastic parts lead the industry in simplicity and efficiency. We have partnered a leading Technical Universities to explore the use of robotics and 3D modeling to advance repairs into areas where replacing a damaged part was the only option. Beyond that, we are striving to bring 3D printing of parts directly to the shop through partnerships with a supplier of emerging printing materials and OEM partners.

These efforts will actually shorten supply chains while driving efficiencies.

Environment

Plastfix is passionate about the environment and reducing the volume of automotive plastic waste we send to landfills. The recent global push for businesses to be more sustainable, better manage their parts waste, and increase their reuse ratio has intensified.

Plastfix provides businesses the ability to contribute to the environment by reusing more plastic parts using our restoration processes and tools.
