Start-up Advice

Free initial consultation for start-up companies

Who can manufacture my product? What will it cost?

These are just two questions that start-up companies and inventors ask themselves. Because planning a new product is a diverse and complex process, in which the question of feasibility and the procurement of required components arises early.

“Inexperience in the global supply chain often lead to project failure”

Several suppliers are often required to manufacture a product. Researching and selecting suitable suppliers is a very time-consuming job. Because especially for an economic production of the products, there is no way around a production abroad.

Those who have no experience in international purchasing, local production processes and the respective legal situation quickly come to the end of the financial viability. The area of logistics is also often underestimated. The cost of delivery and customs clearance are a significant part of the product cost.

We have been successfully realizing customer-specific products for a wide range of industries and applications for years. With the initial focus on electromechanical input units, we supply all components for electronic products. Starting with plastic or metal housings, keyboards, cable assemblies and printed circuit boards.

“One supplier for all components”

“Our aim is to support our customers in the realisation of their products and to manufacture them economically and at the same time in the highest quality”, explains Sales Manager Markus Zemke “We can manufacture both individual components and complete solutions, such as a hand switch. In the end, the customer holds the finished product in his hands”.

“From the first idea to the series delivery”

To guarantee this we offer a comprehensive full service. Starting with the consultative development of the early concepts, up to series and mass production at long-standing manufacturing partners with reliable logistical handling.

Dominik Genz, Technical Manager, who is currently supporting a start-up in the Retail Solutions area, adds that there is a great deal of uncertainty, especially among young companies, about finding the right suppliers for the required components.

“Many young entrepreneurs begin to request each individual component from different companies. But a broad supply chain in particular leads to increased workload and thus rising start-up costs. We can supply our customers with almost any component. The young entrepreneurs can take intensive care of the development and market launch, we take care of the production. We also eliminate the typical pitfalls of global direct purchasing and the entire logistical and customs handling of the products”.

“Services for Start Ups”

Especially for start-up companies, our engineering team offers a range of services, such as feasibility studies, initial cost estimates, prototyping, advice on material selection and elaboration of cost reduction options. On request, we can also take over the design and preparation of technical drawings.

“Especially for project volumes with small to medium quantities we can score points. This is particularly interesting for start-up companies that require smaller quantities at the beginning of the product launch. For us, too, it is always exciting to accompany a product through to market maturity. Due to the intensive cooperation in the initial phase of a project, we have meanwhile established a long-term, trusting business relationship with many initial start-ups. You grow and develop together,” says Julia Beusch, Marketing Manager.
