Short Run Manufacturing

Where Your Prototype Becomes a Product

Whether you are getting started with a first run, or need a thousand products every few months, our short run  manufacturing services are perfect for you.

Small batch manufacturing allows you to get your product into the market quickly. It allows you to bridge the gap between your product prototyping and your full-scale manufacturing plans.

Long run manufacturing takes time and scheduling, but with this short-run solution, you will be able to get your product to market and start receiving valuable consumer feedback on your product – the very feedback that is the key to making your product a success.

With consumer expectations continually changing, in both regards to quality and customized product lines, you have a limited time to get your product on the market. This means the product life cycle needs to shorten, and the time from idea to manufacturing must be precisely managed. Low-volume production can do just that.

Short-run manufacturing saves time in the project cycle and allows for flexibility, allowing you to make design changes if needed.

It saves you money and warehouse space. You produce the products or parts you need and send those off to the end consumer, no warehouse involved.

It gives you the opportunity, as a business owner, or inventor, to operate within your means and control your spending.

First Run Production can help you:

  • Get your product off the ground quickly
  • Save money, allowing you to turn a profit sooner
  • Reduce your risk of excess inventory
  • Effectively test your market
