A manufacturer is a person or company that produces finished goods from raw materials by using various tools, equipment, and processes and then sells the goods to consumers.

Hiring a professional manufacturer makes sense as they are likely to deliver quality workmanship and often back up their work by offering manufacturer warranties. Opting for precision manufacturing rather than lesser offerings gives you access to parts manufactured to the highest quality, competitively priced and always delivered on time.

However, when it comes to finding the ideal manufacturer, you may struggle, given the number of options available today. To help reduce your struggles, here’s a list of the top five things to consider when looking for manufacturing expertise.

1. Quality
When partnering with a manufacturer, one of the top things to look for is the quality of products and services. At Affinity Manufacturing Ltd., we know as much as you do how critical quality is when deciding on partners and suppliers, especially in the manufacturing industry. As a result, we take great pride in its quality assurance, supplemented by our ISO 9001 certification and track record of satisfied clients.

2. Expertise
Expertise and experience in an industry should not be overlooked when looking for industry professionals to partner with. Brand new companies in the industry may lack the knowledge and expertise to fulfill your business needs appropriately. This said, we are proud to have been serving the industry since 2000. With expertise in CNC milling, CNC turning, surface grinding, CMM COC reports, and so much more, innovative companies, engineers, and supply chain professionals partner with us.

3. Lead times
Focusing on assemblies and fabrication, production lead time should be an integral part of your decision. The speed at which your product gets to market matters, especially for innovative companies. Likewise, it is essential to have lead times driven by your demand cycle to ensure you get your parts consistently on time. To ensure this, we have the infrastructure, talent, capacity, and processes to respond to orders quickly and speed up production when it matters most.

4. Responsibility
Responsibility is a vital attribute of a reliable partner. Manufacturing industry professionals need to demonstrate clear responsibility before earning your business. Testimonials and research are a great way to determine the level of responsibility a company exhibits. At Affinity Manufacturing Ltd., we acknowledge this importance and, as a result, place considerable importance on respecting deadlines, responding promptly, and servicing clients with responsibility in mind.

5. Services
Finally, the types of services industry professionals provide should be one of the deciding factors in your decision-making. It is critical to partner with professionals who can provide added value in more forms than one and whose services align with your needs. Ideally, all your manufacturing needs will be met under one roof, removing the stress and cost of shopping around for different services associated with your project. Affinity Manufacturing Ltd. recognizes this and provides a wide range of services to cater to your manufacturing needs, giving our clients one-stop turnkey solutions. These services include assembly, design consultation, fabrication, kanban management, production runs, and prototype development. Our facility spans over 30,000+ Sq.
