Sometimes, it just makes sense to keep your business under one roof.

Demand is higher for electronics today than ever before, and at the same time, electronics manufacturing requires ever-greater levels of skill and precision to deliver top-quality products.  Older methods of outsourcing different aspects of production are having trouble keeping up with this, as the layers of sub-contractors often cannot coordinate sufficiently well to produce a truly high-quality end product.

Domestic Contract Electronic Manufacturing Services Bring More Value To Your Product

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Thu, Jun 18, 2015 @ 10:00 AM

 Likely because of the offshoring boom of the 90s and 2000s, there persists a belief that American-based manufacturing is too expensive to be worth considering - but nothing could be further from the truth. According to multiple studies into the matter, in the long term, costs associated with manufacturing in China and manufacturing in the USA are effectively at parity.

Moreover, American manufacturers have been hard at work updating their processes and competing on value rather than sheer cost.  Sure, the up-front costs of a cut-rate overseas manufacturer will be lower than domestic... but that domestic manufacturer can offer plenty of services and long-term value that few, if any, overseas centers could hope to compete with.

Domestic Contract Electronic Assembly Services Protect Your Product End-to-End

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Tue, May 05, 2015 @ 07:00 AM

There's been plenty of talk lately about the growing trend of reshoring - that is, companies which had previously moved their electronics assembly overseas are now coming home.  We're not just talking small companies either:  Major names like GE, Ford, and even Apple are moving assembly services back to America.

The reasons behind these shifts are complex, from the rising cost of living in Asia to the flexibility problems created with extra long-tailed supply lines.

However, in our opinion, one of the biggest driving factors may be plain security.  There are a number of ways that offshore manufacturing can risk the integrity of your product or your Intellectual Property, whereas US manufacturing greatly reduces those risks.
