Offer for start-ups

SwissFactory.Group offers start-ups that develop appa­ra­tus / devices / machines a com­pre­hen­sive ser­vice pack­age. In addi­tion to the sup­port pro­vided dur­ing the devel­op­ment and indus­tri­al­i­sa­tion phase by the com­pe­tence cen­tre for value engi­neer­ing, SwissFactory.Group offers start-ups the oppor­tu­nity to out­source the fol­low­ing activ­i­ties in particular:

  • Man­u­fac­tur­ing and/or assembly
  • Pur­chas­ing and logistics
  • Test­ing
  • sup­ply chain management
  • Doc­u­men­ta­tion
  • after sales

The offer is mod­u­lar: the cus­tomer can request the entire pack­age or only indi­vid­ual ser­vices — be it for the entire prod­uct or only indi­vid­ual assemblies.

Start-ups will thus enjoy the fol­low­ing ben­e­fits:

  • Focus on pri­mary core com­pe­ten­cies such as devel­op­ment, sales and marketing
  • No invest­ments in the areas of pro­duc­tion, assem­bly, pur­chas­ing, logis­tics and testing
  • No run­ning costs for per­son­nel, rent, oper­a­tion in the areas of pro­duc­tion, assem­bly, pur­chas­ing, logis­tics and test­ing
    → this can sig­nif­i­cantly reduce fixed costs and thus also lower the min­i­mum turnover nec­es­sary for a “break-even
  • Com­pe­ten­cies in the areas of pro­duc­tion, assem­bly, pur­chas­ing, logis­tics, test­ing and sup­ply chain man­age­ment do not have to be painstak­ingly built up, but are pro­vided by expe­ri­enced, exter­nal specialists.

Graphic: Fewer invest­ments and work­ing capital

If a com­pany opts for a con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ing model, it can not only vari­abi­lize its costs, but it can also keep cap­i­tal expen­di­tures and work­ing cap­i­tal lower.

Offer for estab­lished Company

The SwissFactory.Group can sup­port com­pa­nies with their own pro­duc­tion and/or assem­bly of appa­ra­tus / devices / machines with sit­u­a­tion-related offers:

  • Out­sourc­ing of “peaks” — espe­cially in the case of large-scale projects or strongly fluc­tu­at­ing revenues
  • Out­sourc­ing of spe­cial con­fig­u­ra­tions — espe­cially if the exist­ing infra­struc­ture only allows for opti­mal pro­duc­tion and/or assem­bly to a lim­ited extent
  • Out­sourc­ing of pro­duc­tion and/or assem­bly of a newly devel­oped prod­uct — espe­cially in case of sub­op­ti­mal space con­di­tions or in order to avoid higher invest­ments and fixed costs.
  • Out­sourc­ing of assemblies

 

The offers are tai­lor-made. Together with the cus­tomer, assem­bly processes are defined and doc­u­mented in detail. Mate­r­ial flow inte­gra­tion is of cen­tral impor­tance in assem­bly design and forms the basis for reli­able flow processes. By involv­ing the oper­a­tional spe­cial­ists in the con­tin­u­ous improve­ment process, opti­miza­tions are guar­an­teed through­out the entire prod­uct life cycle.

 

Estab­lished com­pa­nies will thus enjoy the fol­low­ing ben­e­fits:

 

  • Vari­abi­liza­tion of fixed costs for per­son­nel, rent, oper­a­tion in the areas of pro­duc­tion, assem­bly, pur­chas­ing, logis­tics and test­ing
    → this means that the min­i­mum turnover required for a “break-even” can be reduced
  • Bench­mark for own activ­i­ties in the areas of man­u­fac­tur­ing, assem­bly, pur­chas­ing, logis­tics, test­ing, doc­u­men­ta­tion and sup­ply chain management

Com­pa­nies in
of the crisis

Cus­tomers who suf­fer from a high fixed cost struc­ture due to declin­ing sales can use the “Rapid Out­sourc­ing” process to out­source their pro­duc­tion and assem­bly activ­i­ties in the short­est pos­si­ble time in order to quickly vari­abi­lize their cost structure.

This means that con­tract man­u­fac­tur­ing can also be used as a restruc­tur­ing measure!
