From the Program Management team to the corporate executive team, it's absolutely critical that a communication line is established with the customer, when it comes to Contract Manufacturing. The CM should be proactive in their efforts to ensure that inevitable manufacturing concerns can be remedied with the customer as soon as possible.
Once production has begun, and is in full-effect, a great CM will have a team of experienced, competent and trained individuals to carry out the assembly and integration. These trained professionals will be supported by their supervisors, tools and techniques, along with a manufacturing system that ensures the team's success. For most programs, the technicians will be trained specifically for the product, while the tools and workstations will be optimized for optimum build quality and efficiency. PEKO's team works tirelessly to use efficient and effective techniques for customers' assembly processes.
Many of the customers who have walked through our doors have one simple question in mind: "How will my project fit into the this company, and will they have enough resources to give my project the time that it needs?" The manufacturing capacity of an organization is the "make-it" or "break-it" of a company's ability to sustain and meet the aggressive deadlines within the manufacturing industry. Having established robust and up-to-date practices ensure that products will make it to the end-user when agreed upon.
