Free initial consultation for Hardware Start-Up companies
Who can manufacture my product? What will it cost?
These are just two questions that budding start-up companies and inventors ask themselves. After all, planning a new product is a multifaceted and complex process in which the question of feasibility and the procurement of required components often arises early on. Hardware start-ups in particular face special challenges in this regard.
Often, several suppliers are required for the manufacture of a product. Researching and selecting suitable suppliers is a very time-consuming task. Because especially for an economical production of the products, you can not avoid a production abroad.
Those who have no experience in international purchasing, local production processes and the respective legal situation will quickly reach the end of the financial viability of their project. The area of logistics is also often underestimated. The costs of delivery and customs clearance account for a considerable part of the product costs.
FULL SERVICE SUPPLIER
We have been successfully realizing customer-specific products for a wide variety of industries and applications for years. With the initial focus on electromechanical input units, as a medium-sized company we now supply all components for electronic products. Starting with the plastic or metal housing, the display and the keyboard, up to the cable assembly and the printed circuit board.
Our ambition is to support our customers in the realization of their products and to manufacture them economically and at the same time in highest quality.
To ensure this, we offer a comprehensive full service. Starting with the consultative development of early concepts, up to series and mass production with long-term manufacturing partners with reliable logistical handling. Especially for start-up companies, our engineering team offers a range of services including feasibility reviews, initial cost estimates, prototyping, advice on material selection and elaboration of cost reduction options. If desired, we can also take over the complete product design including construction or the preparation of technical drawings.
There is also often a great deal of uncertainty about finding the right suppliers for the components needed. Many young entrepreneurs begin to inquire about each individual component from different companies. But it is precisely a broad supply chain that leads to an increased workload and thus rising start-up costs. We can supply our customers with almost any component. The young entrepreneurs can focus intensively on development and market launch, while we take care of manufacturing. The typical stumbling blocks of global direct purchasing and the entire logistical and customs processing of the products are also eliminated.
We can score points especially for project volumes with small to medium quantities. This is particularly interesting for start-up companies that require smaller quantities at the beginning of the product launch.
Due to the intensive cooperation in the start-up phase of a project, we now have a long-term, trusting business relationship with many initial start-ups. We grow and develop together.
