Food Safety Testing: How An Electronics Manufacturing Partner Can Help
There were 20.55 million food products recalled in 2018, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. This has food processing companies struggling to battle food-borne illnesses. High-tech food safety testing is their best defense. The rapidly evolving world of electronics helps with the accuracy of detection and measuring devices needed to meet and maintain food quality standards.
However, you might need a hand when changes happen quickly and demand gets high. Finding an electronics manufacturing partner to help might mean the difference in developing a revolutionary product or letting the competition pass you by.
What is Electronics Contract Manufacturing for Food Safety Testing?
It's no secret that the global market for food safety testing devices is increasingly competitive. More and more companies are succeeding by outsourcing. An electronics contract manufacturer (ECM) can help you get ahead by designing, manufacturing, and shipping whole products, single parts, and everything in between for original equipment manufacturers. Manufacturing is basically delegated offsite to benefit in-house operations. Orders of all sizes and specifications can be placed to go straight to market, or to go on and be used in products assembled elsewhere.
What to Look for in an Electronics Contract Manufacturer
Choosing the right ECM can be a long and grueling process. On the surface, companies that offer electronics manufacturing services might all look alike. But, they are not. You will want to look a little deeper than the surface to find the right ECM for your project. Here are some factors to consider:
First and foremost, you want someone who is familiar with the food safety testing industry and has experience. Look for a company with engineering on site. These professionals know electronics and can help with prototyping. They will also understand the chemical nature of your testing. Together these features are a winning combination.
Once production starts on your device, you want to make sure the manufacturing is backed by quality processes and a quality mindset. Quality certifications, such as ISO 9001, are clear indicators of this. It means the company holds itself to the highest standard and exceeds the safety expectations of the industry. Working with a certified company means you are working with someone who will settle for nothing less than the best.
You want someone who will be in your corner and who is working for you. You want an ECM that supports you and makes the very best products. Lines of communications should be open, and they should be responsive to your suggestions, questions, and concerns. An electronics manufacturing partnership should be strategic, so leave nothing to chance.
Once you’ve selected the right partner, give them the opportunity to show you what they can do. You'll know you are truly a team when they help you save time, money, and headaches without ever sacrificing the quality that your company is known for.
