When it comes to manufacturing, the decision between offshore and onshore production can be overwhelming. Each option has its own set of costs, complexities, and considerations, making it crucial to carefully analyze the variables before making a choice. In this blog post, we will explore the different aspects that should be taken into account when deciding between offshore and onshore manufacturing, helping you make the best decision for your brand’s success.
Certain products require specialized machinery for production, which may not be easily available locally. While outsourcing production is an option, it is important to consider the complexity of your products and the specific stitching or equipment they require. These factors could heavily influence your decision regarding local versus offshore manufacturing.
The quantity of products you plan to produce should also play a crucial role in your decision-making process. While manufacturers may agree to produce a small quantity initially, the requirements might escalate during subsequent productions. Any mid-production changes can greatly impact your branding and pricing strategy, making it necessary to consider scalability when choosing between offshore and onshore manufacturing.
While manufacturing price is a central factor in decision-making, it is essential to look beyond just the factory door price. Considering the complete package is key. However, gathering comprehensive data for comparison can be challenging. Nevertheless, shared experiences suggest that the cost difference between offshore and local production is not always significant.
To address the lack of transparent cost information, we will be hosting a workshop titled “The True Cost of Offshore vs Onshore.” This workshop aims to provide a side-by-side comparison of offshore and local production costs, offering you a clear and transparent view to aid your decision-making process. It aims to empower you with the necessary information to make an informed choice for your brand.
In conclusion, choosing between local and overseas manufacturing is not just about comparing two prices. You have to weigh in all other factors including complexity, quantity, manufacturing process, and others. Lastly, never underestimate the power of information. The more informed you are, the better decisions you can make for your business.
