Tutamen’s manufacturing journey started making emergency blankets and barbeques in Mexico.
Founder and CEO Stephen Prior decided to sell off all assets in Mexico and start fresh in Dongguan, China, which was up and coming at the time and now is the manufacturing capital of the world. Initially opening a metal stamping shop with minor assemblies, we continued to grow and build our reputation as a reliable American-owned company able to compete on price while guaranteeing quality and hassle free, high quality shipments on time.
We acquired a plastic injection company and began producing parts in a number of different industries varying from simple commodities to high cosmetic tight tolerance parts. Shortly after working in plastics we began working more closely in the design and maintenance of the tooling in order to better control process and lifetime capability of our tools.
In 2012 we opened our first metal machining shop focused on high cosmetic parts for IoT and golfing industries. As our capabilities and knowledge grew, we began aggressively pursuing more complex projects where our engineering expertise allowed us to have a greater value add. To support fast turnaround and effective designs we started making our own plastic and metal injection molded tools and fixtures in house. This has allowed us to save on cost internally as well as give discounts to customers while at the same time having a greater control over the quality of tools we are able to provide.
Tutamen establishes SHUPIN, an FDA licensed subsidiary focused on importing medical products into the USA market.
We started to feel price pressure in China and looking for a North American solution we returned to Mexico, opening our Tijuana facility focused on Plastic Injection molding, supported by very capable engineering and supply chain based in China. The company continues to grow as we strive to find innovative solutions for customers using our worldwide network to create a simple alternative to the otherwise chaotic world of international manufacturing. We focus on prototyping, manufacturing and machining and would love to work with you on your next project.
