If you’ve ever been told: “I’m sorry, but your prototype order is too small to process,” then it’s time to change your Contract Manufacturing (CM) partner. Return on Investment (ROI) drives the success of every company regardless of industry or product offered. We all seek the best return on our investments, and in the case of Electronic Contract Manufacturers, internal manufacturing resources are their commodity of value on which ROI is based. That’s why so many opt to maximize their ROI by supporting volume production opportunities over small R&D prototype and low production runs. A shortsighted view? Not entirely, as it all depends on how each CM is structured.
The business model of a large or even medium-sized CM can vary greatly from that of a much smaller CM. Many customers today still assume “Bigger is Better”, but when it comes to choosing the right manufacturing partner, that’s simply not the case. What’s important is where YOU fit into your CM’s business model. Start-ups, complex product manufacturers, and others requiring low volume manufacturing support, just can’t offer the ROI needed by a large scale CM operation operating on single-digit profit margins.
