Contract, Toll, and Custom Manufacturing

Overview Industry Overview:

Contract, toll, and custom manufacturing is a process which – when implemented properly – can be mutually beneficial to both the manufacturer and the hiring firm. They allow companies to focus on their core competencies rather than the production process, while greatly lowering the costs of manufacturing products. Economies of scale, pre-established equipment and best-practices, and relationships with raw material suppliers can all contribute to the savings that contract, toll, and custom manufacturers can offer to companies. Many of these manufacturers can even offer valuable input on product improvement during the design for manufacturability process.

Outsourcing production is not without its risks. Companies are handing over control of production, especially where quality and flexibility are concerned. Most importantly, they are entrusting manufacturers with their intellectual property; those who succeed in this industry, have scientific and technical skills along with an unblemished reputation for integrity.

App Common Applications:

  • Raw material sourcing
  • Packaging and bagging
  • Flammable and hazardous materials
  • Glues, primers
  • Research & Development
  • Supply chain
