10 Tips for Finding the Right Custom Machinery Firm
Finding the right equipment design and fabrication company can be a challenge. Use this simple checklist to choose the company that is best for you.
- Make sure the firm has both engineering and fabrication expertise. Not all engineers have experience in fabrication, and not all fabricators are engineers.
- Ask for recent references and check them. Request both customer and supplier references.
- Be sure your referral sources are "trusted sources" with the experience and knowledge to make the recommendation.
- Listen closely to how much information the firm is willing to share with you regarding their customers. Customer applications should be confidential; be wary of anyone who "talks out of school".
- If your application calls for a large machine, ask how much space the firm owns or leases. What is the largest piece of equipment the firm has ever manufactured?
- How much experience does the firm have? If your project specifications need modification, does the firm have the experience to offer alternate suggestions?
- Will your machine be built in-house or will there be a need to sub-contract part of the manufacturing? What impact will the sub-contracting have on quality control?
- Is the firm able to provide product samples for your review?
- Can they complete critical market studies? Can they assist in benchmark testing and pilot line development work to ensure that your products are superior in the marketplace?
- What are the firm's pricing practices? Remember, the best price does not guarantee the best product.
Our goal is to make your production processes more efficient and cost-effective.
