It’s no secret that in today’s world some companies choose to manufacturing their products offshore. The reason for this is that some people believe it is cheaper to manufacture overseas. However, when you take into account all of the other costs associated with manufacturing overseas it becomes apparent that it is more cost-effective to manufacture locally. It’s one thing paying a lower price upfront but it’s another thing getting a quality product on time and on specification. How much does it cost when you are unable to deliver your product to your clients?
Offshore manufacturing at the moment is currently struggling under a public health crisis that is seeing widespread manufacturing factories being forced into lockdown and it’s uncertain for how long it will continue. Many companies are experiencing problems importing their products from overseas.
In light of this situation it doesn’t mean all is lost, why not partner with an Australian electronics manufacturer? Advanced Technology and Manufacturing is one of the premier electronics manufacturers in Australia. Let’s have a look at why sourcing local from Australia for your electronic PCB assembly will be beneficial to you.
Why Choose an Australian PCB Electronics Manufacturer?
2. Intellectual Property Theft
By keeping your product manufactured locally you won’t run the risk of the product being copied and sold worldwide
Dependability is the second issue that arises when dealing with offshore PCB assembly companies. In most cases, there is no consistency in quality. When you choose an Australian electronics PCB manufacturing company, there is transparency at each step.
At some point in time, communication discrepancies can arise. Such barriers lead to severe consequences affecting the final outcome of your product and this may delay the entire assembly process. From designing to manufacturing and to testing – anything can go wrong if the information exchanged has not been clearly understood by both parties.
Offshore orders add on to your shipment costs, like courier, custom charges and tariffs. Here again, proper communication and coordinated channels have to be established in order to receiving your products on time. Keep in mind the global economy can also have an effect on shipment of your products. Waiting for weeks with no assurance is not situation you want to find yourself in. It can be a stressful process, but, if you are dealing with a local Australian electronics PCB manufacturing company, the shipment costs and stress can be reduced significantly.
Partnering with an Australian company gives you the advantage of maintaining communication on the status of your project. You will be able to easily connect with the company and discuss the progress, suggest on-the-spot modifications, and assure quality standards are being carried out.
Quality is imperative to the outcome of electronics manufacturing. Working with Advanced Technology and Manufacturing assures you that every part of your electronic assembly process is carried out to the highest quality standard. No parts are substituted unless otherwise approved
