Simplifying...

...the manufacturing process between designer and manufacturer

PEP Prototypes offers turnkey low-volume production solutions to product designers looking to simplify the process of getting their products manufactured and into the hands of the end consumer.

Turnkey manufacturing represents a strategic partnership between designer and manufacturer, in which the manufacturer takes on every aspect of product creation, from initial prototyping right through to final packaging and delivery.

It is the most efficient and cost-effective way to take a product from idea to market, because it minimizes the number of hands the project is passed between and significantly shortens lead times.

Low-Volume Manufacturing Links Prototyping and Mass Production

Low-volume manufacturing is the bridge between the pre-production prototyping stage and full-scale mass production. While pre-production prototyping aims to develop a prototype as close to the final production model as possible, there are still generally small, necessary differences both in product and process due to the often single-unit custom production involved.

Low-volume manufacturing takes the next step, utilizing exact full-scale production methods and tooling and producing 100% market-ready parts and products, but at volumes of 100,000 units or less, in contrast to potentially millions of units under mass production.

Low-Volume Turnkey Production...

...Represents a Partnership

Mass production is impersonal. Each project is just one more on the list, and, especially with overseas manufacturers, there is very little personal service or personal responsibility between customer and provider. Low-volume turnkey production represents the exact opposite experience.

In a turnkey low-volume environment, the manufacturer acts almost as an integrated part of the customer’s team, because the two parties’ goals and success are inextricably intertwined. With turnkey manufacturing, failure to meet quality standards, to stay on budget, or to meet important deadlines can sink a manufacturer’s reputation – and in low-volume production, especially of the “made in America” variety, reputation is everything.

Rebuilding and promoting American Manufacturing

That means the relationship between a turnkey manufacturer and the customer is a true partnership, not just a transaction between a buyer and a seller. At PEP Prototypes, we can’t succeed unless our clients do, which is why we’re so committed to taking on our clients’ goals as our own – cost minimization, optimal speed to market, and, most importantly, the absolute highest quality possible.

We’re committed to rebuilding and promoting American manufacturing, and the pride, trust, and unwavering reliability that it once stood for; the only way to do that is to exceed our clients’ expectations for service, quality, and success, every single time.

Thank you to the partners and companies who make all of this possible.

LOW-VOLUME PRODUCTION IS OBVIOUSLY IDEAL

While low-volume production is obviously ideal for products that only require manufacturing of 100,000 units or less, it’s also highly beneficial for products intended to go into mass production as well.

Mass production is an expensive proposition, and there is nothing more disastrous than a mass-produced product hitting the market to a lukewarm reception, resulting in huge amounts of unmovable inventory.

There are a number of reasons why the initial adoption of a new product might fail to meet expectations, from small unforeseen issues with user experience to a misevaluation of market potential.

Low-volume production enables companies to get their products to market in volumes large enough to act as useful pilot programs but not so large that an initial failure to meet forecasts will be financially disastrous.

BENEFITS OF LOW-VOLUME TURNKEY MANUFACTURING

Companies looking to minimize the risk involved in a new product launch need look no further than PEP.

Our low-volume manufacturing services are ideally suited to producing enough inventory to seed the market and run a successful test program, while maintaining the option to rapidly scale-up upon success.

GET TO MARKET AS QUICKLY AS POSSIBLE

One other major benefit of low-volume manufacturing is that it enables companies to get their products to market as quickly as possible in the face of tight windows of opportunity. Mass-production takes time to set-up, can potentially run into scheduling conflicts with manufacturers, and represents a longer manufacturing process than low-volume production.

TIME IS MONEY

Time is money, and wasted time represents an unnecessary opportunity left open for competition. Choosing to send a smaller number of units to market in an initial production run enables parts and products to get out into the hands of their intended users with minimum delay, building brand and product awareness, and cementing market share while mass production is arranged and rolled out.

MISCOMMUNICATIONS

Choosing a turnkey solution also aids speed to market because a turnkey manufacturing partner eliminates all of the delays associated with handoffs and miscommunications that exist in multi-firm manufacturing. Machines are incredibly efficient, but people aren’t.

A SINGLE MANUFACTURING PARTNER

The more service providers involved in getting a product to market, the higher the likelihood that miscommunication, disorganization, or human error will result in delays between stages.

With a turnkey solution, every aspect of a product’s journey from concept to market is handled through a single partner, ensuring the absolute fastest production, QC, and delivery times possible.
