I have a local injection molding company owner on my team and we talk about it often as we have had some ideas for products. It used to be that because of the pricing difference he was able to afford having molds made in China and still have a toll and die maker on staff to rework the molds when they showed up....and have it still be less expensive than a better quality mold made by anyone else.
He said that started changing when the Chinese prices started skyrocketing sometime like last year or so.
