Finding Contract Manufacturers
A Top Source for Design Help, Contract Manufactures
Inventors frequently need an engineer, designer or prototype builder. Rather than struggling through Thomas Register or state industrial directories consider checking out a web site http://thejobshopcompany.com/ home of the job shop company. They have six divisions including:
Design-2-Part shows, Design-2-Part Magazine, Supplier Directory, Job Shop.com and Job Shop Web Design.
The design-2-Part shows are small shows that are arranged around the country. No matter what you are doing for design, prototypes or manufacturing, I recommend you attend a local show. You can meet people and get new ideas about how to produce your product and how you might be able to solve design issue or simplify production.
Another options I recommend you pursue is attending the meetings of your local invention club, which you can locate on https://www.uspto.gov/custom-page/inventor-organizations, or at http://www.uiausa.org/inventorclubs. These meeting often have great guest speakers, I speak at them occasionally, but more important you can meet people who have experience with prototypes, design and manufacturing.
You might also want to start a subscription to Inventor’s Digest (where I write occasional articles mostly on marketing issues.) They frequently have information on design and manufacturing of your inventions. https://www.inventorsdigest.com
Remember to be careful when you talk to people prior to having a patent. You might want to consider having the contact sign a confidential agreement. http://onestopinventionshop.net/blog/2017/02/3126. Some people won’t sign it, then you need to consider how much you trust the individual.
