I am having trouble holding our tool shops accountable for the being late on new molds. Their defense is when we send molds for repair or modification it delays the new tools. Any advice or help would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you,
John

We often add a late delivery penalty clause in Purchase Orders for outside processes or services that are time sensitive.

Charlie, I have the resource guide from the American Mold Builders Association that list alternative sources for rubber mold makers.  It's a great resources.

The most dramatic method to gain a vendor's attention is to let them know you are shopping for a new one!
