Why Choose External Manufacturing?

There may be numerous reasons why a company would need to outsource. When a chemical company is planning a product; the project development team might find that their company may be lacking in the equipment, space, talent, certifications, or capacity to manufacture the product in the time frame that it needs to go to market. The project development team then decides that outsourcing would be the most effective. In the chemical industry, outsourcing is usually referred to as external or contract manufacturing.

What is the Difference Between Toll and Contract Manufacturing?

In toll manufacturing, the toll manufacturer provides the plant, machinery, and labor force necessary to manufacture chemical products. The contracting company, or principal, supplies the process information and raw materials for chemical products that it needs to produce.

In contract manufacturing, the contract manufacturer provides the plant, machinery, and labor force required to manufacture the chemical. The contract manufacturer has more control over the cost, the level of stocks, and the quality of raw materials. Risks related to cost and raw materials sourcing are usually managed through the contracts written.

Benefits of Contract or External Manufacturing

External manufacturing save the principal from the cost of equipment and hiring the specialized labor force to manufacture its product. The principal will also save the time, space, and hassle that it takes to maintain multiple specialized production facilities. This can be helpful when only part of the product production process needs to be outsourced. The key benefit is the principal will have more control over raw materials suppliers’ quality, and location and the contract manufacturer focuses on the quality production of the principal company’s product.

How To Find a Contract Chemical Manufacturing Partner

The first step in initiating a manufacturing partnership is to reach out to the chemical manufacturing company. In the initial message or phone call, it is helpful to include the scope of your company’s project so the manufacturer can determine if their capabilities fit your company’s current needs. After initial contact is made about the project’s scope, an NDA may be needed to further discuss the details of the project. Some important details necessary may be the chemical formula, production schedule drafts, and logistic requirements. At ChemDesign, our chemists’ expertise in manufacturing will take your company’s project from trial to finish. We offer many value-added services including translation of processes, technical support, & process optimization. We have the technology, equipment, and great people to make your chemical outsourcing project a success!
