An industrial sewing contractor can be an important partner if your business requires specialty product and cases that are durable and designed for rugged use. The right contractor can help ensure all of your equipment is properly protected and ready when you are. Some industrial sewing contractors offer services that others do not. When you’re ready to evaluate potential vendors, here are some things you should look for.
- Experience. Choose a vendor that’s been in the business for an extended period of time, and can offer a wide range of expertise for your business. Experienced vendors will be able to provide you with expertise and advice to help you get the best products.
- Design services. If you require cases for specialty equipment, you may have the need for design services to ensure you can get custom made cases for any equipment, even if cases haven’t been created for it before. If your sewing contractor offers designers, they can create cases for you based on other designs they’ve created, or come up with something completely new for you.
- References. Talk with other customers of any industrial sewing contractors you’re considering, to determine their satisfaction with the services provided. Be sure to ask references about the lead times for fabrication as well as their satisfaction with the design services provided.
- Expectations. Talk to your potential vendor, as well, about their promised lead times for fabrication and how quickly they will be able to deliver design services when you need to have a specialty case designed from scratch. It’s important to know that their services can meet your business needs for turnaround time for design and manufacture.
With these questions answered, you should have a good idea of which industrial sewing contractors can offer you the right level of service and design expertise to meet your needs for specialty cases.
