What Exactly is Turnkey Manufacturing?

Turnkey manufacturing is a full-service manufacturing process in which one company sees through all aspects of a client’s project — from design to tooling to quality control to packing and shipping, leaving the customer with a finished, ready-to-use product.

There are numerous benefits to turnkey manufacturing, from cost savings to streamlined communication. Below, we’ll explore some of these advantages.

Shorter Production Times

In the constantly evolving world of manufacturing, “time is money” rings just as true as it did years ago. When multiple firms are working on one project, miscommunication and disorganization are much more likely, which often results in delays. Turnkey services, however, can significantly cut down on production times as all communication and coordination are streamlined and contained within one team at one company.

An experienced turnkey provider will have an established system in place and an organized team that can get jobs completed efficiently, safely, and on-time. If issues or setbacks do arise, it’s much easier for just one company to tackle them.

Strong Design and Manufacturing Dynamic

Because designers and manufacturers work together under a single turnkey company, it’s a much simpler process to make changes to existing designs. Rather than having to separately contact your designer and manufacturer every time something needs to be adjusted, dealing with a single turnkey company allows for easier, smoother communication and the ability to make changes more quickly.

It’s also likely that the manufacturing team has prior experience working with the design team, making for a more unified, cohesive process.

Vested Interest in Your Success

Every member of the team in a turnkey manufacturing company is working toward the same goal — getting your project completed successfully. Finding a reliable turnkey provider ensures quality across the board during all aspects of a project rather than the variance in quality that is inevitable when working with several different companies. Typically, you’ll also receive a higher level of personalized service and a designated account contact  that is devoted to your project.

Also, whereas separate businesses have the chance to place blame on another company if setbacks occur, turnkey providers are held to a higher degree of accountability. This ensures a smoother, less stressful process for everyone involved.

Higher Savings

Entrusting one dedicated turnkey company with your projects not only saves time, but it also saves money. Full-service manufacturers are better able to offer discounted rates for their services than businesses that can only handle one step of the manufacturing process.

Additionally, having all invoicing handled by one company allows for less confusion and an easier job for your accounting department.
