About Contract Manufacturing at Ferriot
Supply-Line Development: In addition to design and engineering services, Ferriot identifies and qualifies the proper supplies for each component we assemble.
The process includes risk management, so that if we’re sourcing particular components for a finished assembly, we start by verifying the capacity and fiscal soundness of several potential suppliers. From there, we begin a bidding and qualifying process to ensure that the suppliers we select deliver on time and to our standards.
Supply-Line Management: Ferriot schedules and tracks the production of molded parts within our own plant and parts and pieces from qualified suppliers.
Because hundreds of different parts and pieces may go into a subassembly or finished product, effective supply-line management requires meticulous adherence to detail — in ordering, scheduling and tracking arrival times, to inspecting the parts and pieces upon their arrival to ensure their quality compliance.
Process Qualification: Whatever the product is, there is an optimum process for making it efficiently and meeting quality standards. Ferriot’s design and engineering team creates the custom blueprints and manufacturing instructions that are critical to turning out quality finished products.
Product Testing: Whatever a customer needs to meet the quality standards for a finished assembly or product, we develop a scheme for meeting those requirements.
Depending on the complexity of the assembly, we may test every product that comes off the assembly line or every tenth product, if we’re dealing with less-complicated assemblies.
Drop Shipping: Often, products that leave Ferriot’s assembly line ship directly to end users — the customers of our customers. We are proud of that because of the level of trust it demonstrates. We get it there, and we get it right.
Final Assembly: When you need it, you get it. That’s an advantage of working with Ferriot. Whether it’s a long run or a small to mid-size batch, Ferriot produces quickly and delivers on time.
About Finishing Operations at Ferriot
At Ferriot, we deliver finished products and subassemblies on time to any location.
The advantage: Our customers avoid the hassle of dealing with multiple suppliers of parts and pieces. Instead, they receive just the finished assemblies they need — whether simple or complex — meeting their manufacturing needs and their delivery deadlines.
The versatility of our skilled workforce differentiates Ferriot. Our workers cross train for multiple jobs, allowing us to balance work flow for maximum efficiency. Workers routinely shift from assembly lines to paint stations, for example. With factory workers averaging more than 20 years of experience each, our talent pool covers a full range of core competencies:
- Finished painting
- EMI/RFI shielding applications
- Cosmetic coatings
- Ultrasonic welding
- Hot stamping
- Heat staking
- Pad printing
