Should You Be Outsourcing Product Design?

02/01/2018 | Neil Sharp, JJS Manufacturing
While handing over part or all of your manufacturing to a third party can be daunting, it offers a host of benefits. It frees you up to focus on what you do best--whether that's designing, marketing or selling. It reduces your operating costs, and you gain from the range and depth of expertise than an EMS can provide.
