Outsourcing your kitting, assembly, or packaging processes may seem like a foreign idea with a lot of unknowns. For small to medium sized companies particularly, those who have invested in staff, inventory, and training to sort, assemble and package their products, it may seem like a large task to start outsourcing this part of your business. The truth is, once you speak with an experienced kitting and packaging company, you may wonder why you didn’t outsource years ago.
Debunking the Top 5 Myths About Outsourcing Kitting and Packaging
Businesses spend a lot of time developing their products, with efficient production methods and quality control. When it comes to packaging for inventory or sale, this is one area that requires just as much attention but can unfortunately be an afterthought. Most companies and manufacturers are experts at what they do, the same goes for kitting and packaging companies.
By outsourcing to an experienced contract packager, you can actually improve your productivity and profitability by focusing on what you do best. Here are some of the top 5 myths that may prevent some companies from realizing the many benefits of outsourcing:
