Contract Manufacturing 101: Getting It Made
November 1, 2018 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm
Entrepreneurs planning to launch a physical product face a unique set of challenges, and with in-house manufacturing presenting an extremely high barrier to entry, most turn to contract manufacturing. But what are the factors to consider when searching for a contract manufacturing partner? And how can you be sure you can trust them with your intellectual property?
Pete Schroeter, a Traverse City resident and 30-year veteran of manufacturing and supply chain management, presents the key issues to consider when contracting another entity to make your product. Issues to be discussed include assessment, selection and contracting, usage, and complementary services.
Pete Schroeter is Principal and sole member of Schroeter & Associates, an independent manufacturing and supply chain consulting practice started in 2003.
