Medical device companies are increasingly looking to contract manufacturing firms to assist with production. By taking advantage of economies of scale, even small startups can find affordable manufacturing facilities for new product. We help both start ups and established companies through this process.
Selecting a contract manufacturer and managing the process of outsourcing work to them may seem intuitive at first glance. After all, companies routinely source and hire vendors for all manner of things. But, selecting and managing a contract manufacturer requires attention to a lot of detail.
Size, location, expertise, capabilities, and their relationship to your internal supply chains all factor into the selection of a contract manufacturer. A contract manufacturing consultant can make the process easier, especially if you select one with experience in the field. Have someone oversee your investment.
At Quality System Consultants, we have experience working on-site with contract manufacturers and with firms looking to select such a vendor. Many of the gut-level assumptions people have when selecting a contractor turn out to be wrong. For example, a recent project we worked on found that a contract manufacturer in the Midwest was more expensive for a company than one located in the Silicon Valley, despite the obvious difference in overhead. An experienced contract manufacturing consultant can help you save time and money by helping you identify biases that aren’t founded in reality. Call (408) 357-9187 to find out how.
