Meet your new competitor: P&G’s custom moldmaking business


Procter & Gamble’s newly formed company, iMFLUX, which it established about two years ago in a large facility in Hamilton, OH, is now a full-service mold manufacturing company. Its website provides information on how the company’s capabilities include machining of multiple types of metals on state-of-the-art three-, four- and five-axis machines, with wire and sinker EDM capabilities, as well. The company provides “unmatched experience creating solutions for customers in medical, automotive, packaging and aerospace industries,” according to the company.
