Vertically Integrated Manufacturing Makes a Significant Impact

Engaging with a vertically integrated manufacturing partner can have a significant impact on your supply chain.  In a vertically integrated manufacturing environment, the processes required to make a product are captured under one roof or under the direct control of the manufacturer across multiple facilities.  By controlling all or most of the elements of manufacture, the manufacturer eliminates dependency upon external suppliers and service providers.

Selecting a manufacturer with broad internal process capabilities has the advantages of:

  • A provider with a thorough understanding of the product’s final requirements, which ensures upstream processes can be established to ensure fit and function at final assembly.
  • Potential for lower lead times through the reduction of queue times and elimination of the shipping time between process vendors.
  • A consistent quality management system utilized throughout the entire process stream.
  • Consolidated points of contact, oftentimes a dedicated project manager and functional team members.
