What is a contract manufacturer

A contract manufacturer (CM) is a manufacturer that contracts with a firm for components or products (in which case it is a turnkey supplier). It is a form of outsourcing. A contract manufacturer performing packaging operations is called copacker or a contract packager. Brand name companies focus on product innovation, design and sales, while the manufacturing takes place in independent factories such as Winwall.

Most turnkey suppliers specialize in simply manufacturing physical products, Winwall is also able to handle a significant part of the design and customisation process if needed. Some turnkey suppliers specialize in one base component (ex. memory chips) or a base process (e.g. plastic molding) Winwall has experience with Aluminum Extrusions, injection molds, fastening systems and tooling design.
