Why Use a Contract Manufacturer?
As you develop or expand your product line, you should be focusing on concept, marketing, sales, distribution, and other decision-making regarding your new products. Manufacturing should be done by experts with the experience and capability to deliver products that meet your expectations. By using a high quality private label contractor, your involvement with manufacturing can be limited to providing guidelines, furnishing artwork, and evaluating and approving product samples. Then, all you have to do is look forward to delivery of your new, superior quality products as you launch your marketing and distribution program.
If you have a product concept – no matter whether you are one person, a small company, department store chain, drug store chain, grocery store chain, or major distributor – Summit Laboratories can help make that concept a reality. Once you agree to move forward, we will begin developing samples for your approval. Meanwhile, package design can proceed on your end, or on ours. Following your final approval of product samples and artwork, and submission of a purchase order and deposit, Summit will schedule full production of your new products.
Just leave the manufacturing to us!
