What is Full Service Manufacturing?

Full-service manufacturing refers to manufacturers who provide end-to-end services other than just product assembly: procurement, assembly, and distribution are offered as “one-stop-shopping” to clients, who are then relieved of having to handle these functions themselves.

FAQ: How Much Does It Cost to Manufacture in Mexico?

How Much Does It Cost to Manufacture in Mexico depends on several factors:

  • What type of product do you want to manufacture? Your costs might be low if you have a small, easy-to-create product that does not require much labor or factory space. You may have higher costs if you create a large, complex product that requires specialized labor or machinery. Where do you want your manufacturing to be located? The location of your manufacturing operations is crucial. You’ll need to be near the US/Mexico border or a port of entry if you want to ship frequently into the United States.
  • Do you wish to start on your own or do you want to use a shelter model? Manufacturers can establish maquiladoras in Mexico without going through the bureaucratic process of establishing a Mexican company using the shelter manufacturing model. While doing everything yourself will be cheaper, it will also take considerably more time and effort to get your manufacturing up and running in Mexico.

The NovaLink Advantage

NovaLink is committed to the philosophy that transitioning shelter manufacturing to Mexico should be an easy, rapid and cost-effective process. We offer the following advantages to enable our customers to succeed.

Ability to Scale

NovaLink can initiate a manufacturing relationship with a floor plan as small as 5,000 square feet. Once the relationship has been established, and proven successful, customers can scale up to 100,000 square feet or more. It also permits larger customers to scale down if the customers’ business experiences a need to reduce overall capacity.

Attractive Labor Pool

Mexico has made large strides in developing a world class labor market. NovaLink has positioned itself and helped develop a geographical market of labor that is pro-business resulting in lower than normal turnover rates.

No Significant Upfront Capital Commitment

NovaLink client’s are not required to enter into any long-term lease obligations or purchase new equipment (if currently owned). Furthermore, the client’s equipment can be shipped to NovaLink’s facilities in stages as production ramps to ensure quality control.

Quick Turnaround

With our proximity to market, short lead times are met with turns from order placement as short as five days.

Simple Pricing

NovaLink offers a variety of pricing models to accommodate unique client needs. These range from fully loaded hourly rates to a full package model where NovaLink provides the raw materials and equipment.

Site Selection & Raw Materials Procurement

NovaLink can accommodate your operations within our current facilities, or if you prefer your own facility, assist in site selection, secure all permitting requirements and coordinate this effort with a builder or landlord.  Many of our customers have dedicated suppliers in place, but for those that do not, NovaLink will source materials and provide cost estimates.

Full Service Manufacturing vs. Full Package Manufacturing

The full package manufacturing industry is often associated with the garment and textile industries, but it can also include other kinds of manufacturing such as electronics or product assembly.

FPM companies take care of everything when it comes to garment or product creation. With FPM partners you can get end-to-end services: procurement, assembly, and distribution are all done in one place so clients don’t have to worry about doing it themselves.

Do You Have a Minimum Order Quantity (MOQ)?
It is common practice in manufacturing to set a minimum order quantity (MOQ), which is the fewest amount of units that need to be purchased at once. Manufacturers or suppliers usually use MOQs for production runs, but a manufacturer can set them for different types of orders. At NovaLink, we do not establish relationships with our manufacturing partners based on MOQs, but rather through sustained production. NovaLink believes that having a consistent volume that engages full-time manufacturing teams year-round is the key to a successful, financially-viable manufacturing project. Partnering with NovaLink is not for “short runs” or products that require simple, machine-based production.
