E Craftsmen has long standing relationships with trusted vendors located in China, Taiwan and India and we can utilize these partners when higher volumes would suggest cost-reduction potential.
We value our relationships with these vendors and have been working with some of them for upwards of 10 years. Each of these companies has their own unique competencies and we select the most suitable manufacturer based on the part parameters.
Any effort to utilize these partners is conducted in a way that is fully visible and trouble-free for our customers. Typically, all production parts are shipped to our facility in Waterloo, Ontario, for 100% conformance testing before delivery to our customer. In some cases, however, we can facilitate a drop-shipment program from our vendor directly to the customer’s own off-shore facility; of course, this scenario may require additional quality assurance provisions.
