Why choose Toll 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 time-efficient and cost-effective method for producing. In the chemical industry, outsourcing is usually referred to as tolling or contract manufacturing.

What is the difference between Toll Manufacturing and Contract Manufacturing?

In toll manufacturing, the 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 and 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 also sources raw materials and supplies logistics. The contract manufacturer has more control of the cost, the level of stocks, and the quality of raw materials. Risks related to cost and raw materials sourcing are usually managed through contracts.

Benefits of Toll Processing

Tolling and contract 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 principal will benefit from toll manufacturing because it will have more control over raw materials suppliers’ quality, location, and cost. The toll manufacturer focuses on the quality production of the principal company’s product. This can also help minimize the cost of toll manufacturing to just the manufacture of the product.

How to find a Toll Manufacturing Partner

The first step in initiating a toll manufacturing partnership is to reach out to the chemical tolling 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 companies project from trial to shipment. We offer many value-added services including translation of process, technical support, process optimization, logistics management. We have the technology, equipment, and great people to make your chemical outsourcing project a success!
