A company will outsource the manufacturing of their product to another company under terms of a contract and fee. This is called Contract Processing.
The coatings industry is one of many that will outsource production of their products. As advances in technology produce more ways to achieve submicron particles, companies are finding it a challenge to keep up.
They take advantage of having another company manufacture their product and all the benefits that outsourcing production can offer; reduce cost, reduce risk and liability, experienced professionals working the production, no additional permits needed, and much more. Before production can begin there are several things that both companies need to agree upon and come to terms with.
It begins with the company procuring a manufacture and then begins discussion of what type of coating is the material and what kind of machinery will need to be used. Customers will tour the facility and they will determine the volume levels of production and agree on what step of the manufacturing process will be the responsibility of the manufacture. Those include; procurement of raw material, milling the material, inventory management, storage, shipping and packaging to end user.
