Offshore manufacturing is a great alternative. The common misconception is that offshore manufacturing leaves you with cheap product that lacks quality. This is definitely not always the case and B&C have fantastic relationships with a number of overseas manufacturers. By utilising the offshore manufacturing opportunity, it allows you to reduce labour costs by up to 70%. This allows you to delegate more work to others during the manufacturing process and allows you to focus on growing your business.
Just like in Australia, offshore manufacturing gives you access to lots of skilled workers, leading to a shorter manufacture time. Unfortunately, the ship time is what you can end up waiting for up to 4 weeks on. Many believe that offshore manufacturing is cheaper than manufacturing in Australia. This is not true. Offshore manufacturing can cost just as much, if not more, when you calculate shipping costs, customs and duty costs. This is where you’ll need to do your due diligence.
