Design is more than just creating new parts, it’s creating new ways to make your parts better. Over the years, Engineered Profiles design engineers have contributed towards building one of the first vinyl siding products in the world, pioneered wood plastic composite materials, along with high speed fabrication techniques that dramatically improve manufacturing efficiencies. The spirit of innovation is brought to every custom plastic profile we design.
Day one of a project begins with our design staff working closely with the customer’s supply chain professionals to discern what plastic extrusion solution is required. This relationship helps create a collaborative atmosphere that endures throughout the life of the project. Sales, Customer Support, and engineering resources stay in contact with the customers to continually improve our service to you.
Upon beginning an extrusion project with Engineered Profiles, the new part is paired with a Project Manager that walks the project from quote to finished project through a process we call Stage-Gate. Each project has a series of milestones that ensure there are no unanswered questions when the profile enters a production environment.
This internally developed process has been honed over hundreds of profiles to reduce development time while making sure every aspect of how the part is used in the real world is understood. Stage-Gate captures key quality data, customer specific requirements, packaging information, and manufacturing trouble shooting in an electronic format. The benefit of this process to our customers is no surprises.

Supply Chain Design
Designing next generation parts and tools isn’t the only design Engineered Profiles brings to the table. As a discreet manufacturer for OEMs we have a long history of designing supply chain models to fit the customer’s specific needs. Each new project carries with it a different supply chain challenge to keep inventories low and deliveries on time. That’s why Engineered Profiles employs a dedicated team of customer service and sales specialists to engineer the precise supply chain solution for your polymer parts.
