Knowing what type of questions to ask a contract manufacturer can mean the difference between a successful product run and a disastrous one. That’s because not every manufacturer is right for every project, and it’s important to rule out these manufacturers early. Asking targeted questions is the best way to determine whether a manufacturer is a good fit for you and your product idea so you won’t waste any time getting that idea to market.
To help facilitate these discussions, here are just a few of the most important questions to ask a contract manufacturer before you talk about any production details with them. This guide will also teach you how to spot any potential red flags in their answers.
