Transferring products from an OEM’s internal manufacturing group or a long-time contract manufacturing partner can be a daunting task since the Bill of Materials and assembly procedures can be rife with “tribal knowledge.” Because of a knowledgeable and experienced support staff, Proto-Pac has the ability to interpret ancient and incomplete documentation packages that usually accompany legacy products. Working closely with new customers/partners, we’ve successfully recreated detailed manufacturing documentation packages for entire product families.
Our Materials Group can scrub an old Bill of Materials and correct incomplete or inaccurate part numbers, while the Purchasing team scours the earth for supplies of obsolete components from non-franchised distribution. Our Engineering Group can suggest alternatives for components that were manufactured by companies that no longer exist. Our Manufacturing Engineering staff can develop and define processes that were known only to an “inner circle” for many years.
If you’ve been hesitant about outsourcing your in-house manufacturing or making a change in your current EMS provider because of these concerns, please contact Proto-Pac Engineering today.
