Manufacturing your idea

Manufacturing your idea

How to get your idea manufactured ready for sale.

So you want to manufacture the idea and sell it yourself. Well the first thing is to get a prototype and then approach manufacturers with engineering drawings and ideally CAD files of that prototype.

We suggest you approach manufacturing companies in the UK first and then try to get alternate quotes for a manufacture in the Far East and also Eastern Europe to give you an idea of the potential cost savings. It is worth asking the manufacturer to sign a confidentaility agreement before discussing it with them in order to give yourself further protection.

Some UK manufacturers have partners in China which gives you significant advantages. The initial pre-production design work can be done in this country avoiding any issues of language barriers and facilitating face to face meetings but once everything is finalised the production can move to China resulting in lower costs.
