What Is Turnkey Manufacturing?

With turnkey manufacturing, one company oversees all aspects of a project from beginning to end, including product design, machining/tooling, quality assurance, vendor interactions, manufacturing, packing and shipping. This does not mean that one company does all of the work in-house, turnkey refers to one company serving as a project manager to successfully bring your project to completion.

The Benefits of Turnkey Manufacturing

Turnkey manufacturing offers customers many advantages, including:

Shorter Production Times

When different companies work on the same project, there is a greater chance for miscommunication and organizational issues that contribute to long lead times. You can avoid these problems with turnkey manufacturing.

All facets of production are handled by one company. With a more streamlined communication process and better task coordination, turnkey manufacturers produce your items more precisely and in less time. With shorter production times, your products will be delivered faster, improving your reputation and increasing your profits.

Enhanced Quality

Your design and manufacturing processes must be in sync to ensure the best results. When multiple companies are involved in creating your product, details are more likely to get lost in translation, and it can be challenging to make adjustments in the middle of the process. A fragmented manufacturing process can also cause discrepancies in quality with less accountability.

When you use a turnkey manufacturer, their design and manufacturing departments are centrally located for better, faster communication and coordination, allowing changes to be handled with greater ease and accuracy. The level of quality you are looking for is set from the start, and the turnkey company can provide better assurance of that quality across departments.

Cost Savings

Many turnkey companies offer discounted rates for your level of investment in their services. When you work with individual specialty companies, it can be harder to get the same direct cost savings as when you work with a turnkey company.

You also receive indirect cost savings from the quicker production turnarounds and consolidated billing processes associated with turnkey manufacturers.
