Today’s emerging global manufacturing market offers attractive opportunities such as labor cost benefits and volume production capabilities; however there are countless associated risks involved with signing a contract with an oversees manufacturer if all the necessary precautions are not taken. In fact, if the entire process is not carefully planned and well executed, profitability of the product can take a “nosedive into the red” due to excess expenses such as travel, shipping, engineering, and most disastrous – customer returns and project delays due to geographical limitations. In order to prevent a major disaster from happening oversees, we follow a proven process to transfer manufacturing services from our facility in San Jose to our EMS partner overseas, in three phases:
1. Domestic NPI and Pre-Production Phase
2. Offshore Manufacturing Setup and Transfer
3. Back-End Services
A “hands-on” approach is essential for achieving success in outsourcing your manufacturing needs. As an experienced EMS, Surface Art has the knowledge, experience, and resources available to help transition your production needs offshore with success.
