If you go to the doctor, the last thing you want to hear is that they’ve just finished their internship. Why? Because a seasoned doctor will make you feel safe, and you know they’ve seen their share of experiences to handle your health care properly. In the same way when you are looking to get your product manufactured you’ll want to find a company that makes you feel safe knowing they have the experience to handle your project.
Here is how working with experienced product manufacturers can change your whole manufacturing experience.
One of the advantages we have is strong relationships with our product manufacturers that go back decades. In China, relationships are a key part of doing business much more so than in the U.S.
Stronger relationships in China means that we’ll be able to negotiate better pricing, and resolve issues quickly and with better outcomes when they do happen, which isn’t often.
In the US, people will do business with people they don’t like. This often isn’t the case in China, and they will work with only people that they like and trust. A difference in business culture, trust and relationship are important and is commonly referred to as ‘Guanxi‘. Building Guanxi can take months and even years, so having these relationships established is of great benefit throughout the process.
Efficiency & Better Lead Times
Product manufacturers that know what they are doing will be able to work more efficiently. They’ll recognize the best ways to go about making your product from experience, which means they can make parts faster than lesser experienced manufacturers.
An operation in machining is a program run on a part that will cut, drill, or turn a part. The fewer operations needed to make a part, the quicker the parts can be made. A machine shop that has a team of people that can make a part in 3 operations will have a much better lead time than a machine shop that has to take 6 operations to do it.
Better Overall Experience
What you don’t want to do is work with a company that doesn’t know what they are doing. The last thing you want to hear from a factory is that they have to restart your order because they made a mistake during production and they have to scrap your shipment. Or that they can’t make your parts to tolerance and they didn’t realize it until halfway through the order and they hope that you can accept them.
Working with a team of experienced product manufacturers will reduce the chances of things going awry, and when they do, you can rest assured that the situation will be corrected.
