When Your Electronics Manufacturer Offers Repair Services, That Brings Long-Term Value

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Tue, Jun 23, 2015 @ 10:00 AM

If you haven't recently looked into the advantages of American-based electronics manufacturing, it might be time to do so.  US manufacturers have been hard at work improving their service offerings, to compete in a global market against cut-rate manufacturing options.

America is already a highly-competitive option for electronics manufacturing, and when you partner with domestic firms, you can get services far beyond what most overseas partners can provide.

Of these, the inclusion of PCB repair services and other post-sale support is perhaps the most crucial, as it addresses a huge ongoing cost in electronics that's rarely factored into the initial manufacturing decisions.  Rather than treating post-sale as an afterthought, American electronics firms can bring you a fully-integrated all-in-one solution for introducing new products to market.

There's less and less reason to look offshore for electroincs, and plenty of great reasons to keep your PCB prototype assembly right here in the USA!

As NPR reported earlier this year, the "reshoring" trend is still going strong, and it's due directly to major market shifts, along with realizations that overseas manufacturing wasn't quite the bargain it was sold as.

Re-shoring of Manufacturing to the US

Posted by Matthew Turpin on Sun, Jun 10, 2012 @ 09:16 AM

Have you ever noticed how people will ignore information that doesn't support a decision they have made?  It happens every day with offshore electronics manufacturing when buyers and executives look at just the unit cost of a pcb assembly or circuit card and ignore other costs to the organiziation that aren't factored into purchased price variance (PPV).  Direct costs associated with shipping, import fees, supplier visits warranty costs are often ignored or not understood by the people making a supply chain decision.  And the soft costs associated with missed revenue recognitiion, late customer deliveries and quality issues can slowly eat away at an organizations goodwill.
