Contract Manufacturing

Contract manufacturing is the production of goods by a third party for another company. Known as outsourcing, it is one of the most-common forms of long-term manufacturing. It’s utilised by businesses worldwide and can involve any stage of production; from product innovation, component manufacture to contract electronics, turnkey manufacturing, small batch or mass production. Contract manufacturing makes production possible for companies lacking an in-house development team, production facilities or test capabilities.

At APC Technology, every solution we manufacture is built to survive the demands of the customer’s environment. With our comprehensive range of capabilities and services all in house, we aim to cover all aspects of the design, build and manufacturing process. This ensures we meet your specific requirements no matter what stage you are at with building your product.

The role of Contract Manufacturing for businesses

A company seeking service will provide complete technical drawings and documentation. The contract manufacturer (CM) will manufacture the component or product, from start to finish based on the client’s unique requirements, therefore taking the production burden away from companies.

As a vital link in the manufacturing industry, CMs make it possible for businesses to manage production more efficiently and access cost savings.

Contract Manufacturing Capabilities

  • Small batch to mass production: Batch production is a beneficial way of manufacturing that can suit many different kinds of businesses and industries. At APC Technology, we give you greater control over the elements that occur during the production process and follow strict quality measures to minimise waste. While you may think that starting small is not as cost-efficient as ordering on a larger scale, it can still be a smart way to control your costs. Should one of your products take off and you need to meet the increased demand, we can help scale up your production to meet your new requirements.
  • Build to print: Our experienced contract manufacturers have the accuracy and certifications to build components of your product to your requested specifications, right down to the millimetre and the materials you want. The main benefits of build to print are accuracy and efficiency. Additionally, once you have passed over your built to print design our team will be able to manufacture individual components for repair requirements, further supporting your business.
  • Build to specifications: We can engineer and specify solutions based around the needs of the client. APC will design and manufacture a component or complete product. In the design and spec process, APC can help clients navigate product design including prototyping and testing a solution pre-production. For example, the benefit to design to spec is when the specifics, measurements, and materials remain unknown, we can assist you in determining what the most cost-effective solutions are.
  • Full custom solutions: If you’re looking to build a product from scratch, our fluid processes allow for plenty of flexibility and agility to build a product that’s designed and engineered to order.
  • Contract Electronics: We design and deliver an affordable printed circuit board (PCB) assembly service and other electronic parts that gives you the highest possible level of quality and reliability. Our rapid prototyping, high volume manufacturing, global logistics and distribution, supply chain management and testing provides quick turnaround and feedback on the manufacturability of your product.
  • Temperature-controlled manufacturing facilities: We have a number of temperature-controlled facilities on-site to consistently maintain the precise efficiency of the manufacturing of different materials and product components.
  • ESD controlled facility: Our state-of-the-art facilities can protect products from ESD during the material handling of your products with proper grounding and control procedure methods.
