CAD & Prototype Approval are the 2 steps that every project goes through. After an initial consultation with the designer assigned to the project our customers receive a 3D CAD file for review. This is a convenient way to check all dimensions, cutout and print locations and visualize all assembly operations. The chances of making a perfectly functioning first prototype are greatly improved by a thorough joint CAD review. A 2nd review occurs once the physical prototype has been delivered. This is when details are tweaked and QC and shipping instructions established.

ISO 9001 Compliance was formalized in 2017 when ClickFold moved from working to ISO 9001 quality standards to engaging a globally recognized auditing company. International Management Systems Marketing (IMSM) is a leader in the field of ISO 9001 certification and has been conducting our annual audits ever since. Over this time several of our employees have received ISO 9001 training and certifications. In addition to IMSM’s annual audit we are committed to at least 3 internal audits. Many of our customers require their suppliers to be ISO 9001 certified and we take this obligation seriously.

Better Business Bureau (BBB) Ratings are a great way to find out more about a business and its track record of serving its customers. The number of complaints and how they were handled are good indicators for the reliability of a company. For most of our customers we are the only source of a product that is custom made for them which means a lot of trust is placed in us. The success of our customers greatly depends on our ability to provide the quality needed and ship on-time very time over the lifetime of the product – often many years. We are a proud BBB Member since 2012.

Located in Charlotte, NC we are within easy reach of I-77, I-85, I-485 and Charlotte Douglas International Airport (KCLT). Our new facility sits right on the state-line between NC and SC which gives us convenient access to the airport as well as Charleston, SC and its seaport. Being located centrally in the Mid-Atlantic region means 1-3 day ground shipments to all destinations East of the Mississippi. Proximity to the airports in Charlotte, NC and Columbia, SC also allows for late in the day overnight shipments to anywhere in the U.S. plus Canada and Mexico.
The Company’s History goes back to the business idea of offering an alternative to traditional housing production methods – better for low volumes than injection molding, more appealing than sheet metal and custom where off-the-shelf won’t do. The unique process developed specifically for this purpose is a CNC controlled machining, thermo-line-bending and solvent welding sequence. Machines and know-how were obtained under a licence with TTK GmbH in Germany and operations started in May of 2000 under the initial name ProPlastic Designs, Inc.

Partners of ClickFold are other former licensees of TTK engaged in the same line of business. We maintain especially close ties with CubiDesign in Germany and Quickplast in Brazil and engage with them in joint R&D projects. This means that production can be transferred to either location with relative ease. ClickFold also collaborates with the University of NC at Charlotte, Central Piedmont Community College and York Technical College by employing interns and sponsoring student projects. ClickFold is also an active member of the SC Manufacturing Extension Program.
Corporate Citizenship is something we take seriously and ClickFold actively supports the vocational training programs at Olympic High School and the Aviation Institute of Maintenance. Other organizations we support are the German School of Charlotte, Rotary International, the Civil Air Patrol, the Mecklenburg County Board of Elections, the Lancaster Chamber of Commerce and the Council for Children’s Rights. We also do what we can to protect our local environment by minimizing resource and energy use and recycling our paper and packaging waste and plastic materials.
