Global Contract Manufacturing Services

Our People. Our Process. Your Design.

Bring Your Designs to Life

We are experts in precision assembly, automation, and inspection technologies that help companies reduce scrap ratios, perform high-quality inspections of complex geometries, and automate the precision assembly of complex products. By leveraging our vast experience in advanced manufacturing and automation across industry verticals, our contract manufacturing services specialize in low-volume/high-mix (LVHM) for complex platforms, delivering end-to-end support including design, DFX, supply chain management, manufacturing, fulfillment, logistics, field services, and more.

Our Contract Manufacturing service offering makes manufacturing partnerships available to clients with a viable engineering design, but without the manufacturing infrastructure or capacity to bring that design to life. Our partners benefit from world-class production and manufacturing engineering teams that can provide expertise in reviewing BoMs and drawings, recommend alternate sources of component supply, and suggest design improvements to improve manufacturability.

Case Studies

Automated Parcel Sortation

One of our largest customers in the Automated Parcel Sortation industry came to DWFritz for helping in completing the unique AI based design of their product. And when the orders started pouring in, they did not have the manufacturing bandwidth to deliver on their forecast. By partnering with DWFritz with our Copy Exact/Contract Manufacturing Operations, we were able to quickly scale up production to assemble, build and ship on a very aggressive delivery schedule.

Battery Manufacturing for Datacenters

With the exploding growth of the Datacenter industry, our customer had established themselves as a superior technology-based newcomer that would transform the Battery Backup market with their innovative design. Being a startup, our client had very little production resources to scale to meet demand. Within 90 days, DWFritz was able partner with them to and provide facilities, skilled labor and global procurement expertise to deliver hundreds of their finished products on a monthly basis that met/exceeded their demand forecast.

Medical Equipment

A medical equipment tubing supplier came to DWFritz with a forecasted annual increase in demand by over 400%, and did not have enough tube machines to take advantage of surge in demand. DWFritz was able to take their design and produce dozens of a highly complex electro-mechanical system. As a result, they are now taking advantage of the spike In the market and maximizing their business plan profits.

Case Study

The infographic shows how the DWFritz Contract Manufacturing team analyzed and optimized client drawings and documentation to construct an accurate bill-of-materials during the quoting process for an advanced manufacturing client.

R

Client Delivery

The client delivered a document package containing 731 complex engineering drawings, but without an electronic Bill of Materials or overall structure. Our team’s goal was to provide a quote for the project in four weeks.

R

Optimization Process

Our production, engineering, and supply chain teams quickly analyzed and organized the documents into mechanical, electrical, and pneumatic assemblies, and then by subassembly. Digital BOMs were manually constructed and then combined them into a flat BOM for the supply chain team. The cost input was ported into the subassemblies to generate a customer cost breakdown. Technicians and manufacturing engineers reviewed the drawings to provide build time estimates, note issues or obsolete parts, and highlight areas of improvement.

DWFritz Delivers

DWFritz provided a detailed proposal package to the customer, including price break information from our supplies to show how volume pricing could lower their overall unit cost – all within the full quote time.
