The Unites States has long been known as both a country of ideas and a country of technology. The USA is a country that learned that it could recycle its old technology to create energy for the newer models, as recycling one million laptops can save enough energy to run 3,675 homes for a full year. For over a hundred years, the United States has been at the forefront of the technology field, utilizing first the vacuum tube, then the transistor and now the integrated circuit to drive the field of personal electronics to newer and greater horizons. As the world has turned to a more globalized economy, it can be difficult to figure out how to keep American companies at the forefront of the cutting edge. How can American companies find the fast track? One way to gain an edge in today’s market is to make intelligent use of electronic contract manufacturing services.
Electronic contract manufacturing services are essentially companies who will take your idea and mass produce it into a viable supply. Your ingenuity creates the product. Your marketing team creates the demand. Electronic manufacturing companies ensure that you have the supply to meet that demand. In the current political climate, there may be some resistance to using an electronic contract manufacturer, but the economic benefits are simply too compelling. Finding electronic manufacturing solutions in Asia allows you to keep overhead, component and labor costs low. Not only can you get your components quickly and in large numbers, but you save even more by not having to invest in the infrastructure of an electronic component factory and also by not having to train a warehouse full of electronic assembly workers.
That may sound harsh, but it actually creates more and better job opportunities back home. By utilizing electronic contract manufacturing services for your electronic design and manufacturing, you begin a chain reaction of cash flow, all of which benefits your business. First, you ensure that your products are quality by outsourcing the manufacturing to a region that has a proven and growing track record in this field. SINOCES (China International Consumer Electronics Show) is already the most prominent international fair for electronics professionals in that region of the world. Further, by saving money on manufacturing and overhead, that frees up capital for your promotions and advertising budgets. The end result is that your company has quality built products in large quantities and then has the capital to invest in creating white collar jobs in America.
One caveat that should be followed whenever possible, however, is to try and find an electronics contract outsource company that has US based management and logistical support. This allows for a more simplified and direct chain of communication, as your quality assurance contacts will be easier to access.
