Custom Sewing Contractors: Setting your Expectations

Posted by Wayne Hiegert

By Wayne Hiegert – VP Sales & Marketing

When sourcing to find custom sewing contractors, it is important to define your company’s needs and expectations in the very beginning. Many custom sewing contractors exist within the market, however not all have equal product development and manufacturing capabilities. Depending on the complexity of your custom sewn product requirements, partnering with a TOTAL Source manufacturer might be the most efficient and cost-effective choice.

Expectations for TOTAL Source Industrial Sewing Contractors

OEMs seeking to partner with custom sewing contractors to manufacture complex design or specialty formulation material sewn products must consider the level of in-house product development and supply chain management capabilities the contractor employs. Heavily regulated industries such as the medical, fire and safety, industrial and Government and Defense markets rely on their supplier base to provide education and direction on the development of non-core, specialized sewn products. TOTAL Source manufacturers will manage all aspects of their client’s design, engineering and product development, raw material sourcing and supply chain management, secondary component part design and manufacturing, all aspects of the manufacturing process, quality assurance, logistics, warehousing and inventory management. Clients receive a quality inspected, fully assembled and packaged sewn product that meets their exact specifications.
