If you have a prototype product that needs to be developed, or if you only have an idea but not the specifics of what you need in regards to fabric, padding, materials and hardware, partnering with industrial sewing contractors is a very wise choice.
Many small companies, entrepreneurs and startups don’t stop to consider all the advantages of hiring these professionals over trying to do production in-house. If you just stop and look at the advantages the reality and the benefits of contracting out makes a lot of very good business sense.
No Equipment or Additional Space
Completing in-house sewing at any type of production levels is a big addition to the workload of any company. However, it isn’t just the actual hours of work; it is also the need to buy the specialized sewing equipment and also to have the space to set up the production line.
By using an established company, the product will be made on state of the art equipment and with the latest in design technology and features.
No Training of Staff
On top of the space needed for production, and the need for the new equipment, there is also the time needed to train staff on the equipment. The sewing machines of today are much more advanced, but they still required skilled technicians to manage the systems and to complete some of the detail work.
Training in-house staff is not only going to slow down production, but it is also an ongoing task for all new staff, which makes it a continuing drain on both time and energy for your business. When working with sewing contractors, they manage all training, and you get the benefits.
Experience and Expertise at your Fingertips
Working with companies that offer industrial sewing is a great way to access expertise and experience in creating a perfect product. Often these companies have seen similar products, and they may be able to recommend superior options in fabrics, design features, hardware or other elements of the design.
Of course, the decision will always be yours, but having that additional insight can be helpful in creating the best possible product without all the trial and error often associated with developing a prototype.
With the best of sewing contractors, you will also find that materials and additional services are typically at a lower price that you could arrange even direct from the manufacturer. This is because the industrial sewing companies buy in such volume they get the best possible prices, which they then pass on to their own customers.
By taking the time to consider the cost of doing your own in-house sewing and production compared to hiring an industrial sewing company, you will quickly see which is the best option for your production needs.
