Our extensive manufacturing network extends our manufacturing capabilities beyond the walls of our factory.
When all our in-house machinists are occupied, or when a customer has a niche set of requirements, we may turn to our manufacturing partners to complete the assignment.
Our manufacturing partners undergo strict assessment to become part of the RapidDirect manufacturing network, so that we can depend on each of them.
When we think an order is best suited to another manufacturer, we add the order to our manufacturer’s platform, and let manufacturers bid to fulfill the project. In this stage, we deploy an algorithm that helps us determine the best manufacturing partner for the job.
The algorithm takes into account the manufacturer’s proposed price, number of machines, number of employees, how long they have been in business, how their previous orders have turned out, whether their lead times have been accurate in the past and several other factors.
Most importantly, every manufacturing facility on our network has an assigned RapidDirect employee, so that we can oversee the entire project once a partner has been chosen, making sure everything goes to plan.
