When customers ask us “What if?”, we have the answer: “We can.”
As an innovative, creative solution provider and manufacturer, many customers come to us with a new idea, new product, new manufacturing process, or a problem and are in search of a solution. Our team of creative problem solvers can provide functional, real-world solutions to fit your needs.
At Hope Global, we don’t use Continuous Improvement or Lean as a catchphrase. It is our way of life. Our teams work every day to maximize our customer’s value while we minimize waste. Throughout our global locations, we have dedicated teams of professionals working in all phases of our operations to reduce or eliminate defects, overproduction, transportation, and excess inventory. We strive daily to remain agile and expeditious in our efforts to keep and maintain our processes within standards.
Research & Development
Our research and development team of engineers have a singular goal: utilize our prototype and production equipment to help facilitate creative solutions for our clients’ challenges in the most timely and cost-effective way possible.
A few recent innovations
Hope Global added a Customer Technical Resource Center in Auburn Hills, MI in 2017 on top of our existing research and development capabilities.
This rapid prototype and development center houses Hope Global’s North American Advanced Engineering team, Sales team, and Project Management personnel. This collaborative space integrates technology and know-how, to get your product to market better, faster, and more affordable.

Hope Global’s vertically integrated foam line offers an 18-mold carrier system for polyurethane components and foam-in-place options. The double shuttle mold carrier allows us to produce diverse components simultaneously.
The carrier features fast shuttle movement; short closing time and is engineered to produce precise parts. Outfitted with a robotic pour and foam head, we can produce the exact part every time.
Integrated at our customers’ request, we expanded our capabilities to include Plastic Injection Molding as a value-added service.
Our state-of-the-art equipment ranges from 420 Ton to 650 Ton presses and allows for our design and engineering team to provide the substrate necessary for the foundation of your project. Our team can assist with the design and rapid prototyping for custom parts, and our partnership with superior tool makers allow us to take your part from concept to production.
The auto industry moves fast. Hope Global’s R&D is purpose-built to meet the most demanding schedules. Case in point: When a leading manufacturer decided to replace cut-and-sew with a cloth assembly on seat backs to reduce scrap, re-work, and labor, they turned to us.
The result: In months, we developed a viable molded part design for incorporation into 500,000 units.
That’s performance. That’s the Hope Global way.
