We no longer source or order anything from china, nor incorporate chineses parts and components in a design. Too risky, and then have the chinese company go bust, and the design and implementation becomes invalid, a do-ever.
There has definitely been a sea change in regards to new product development, sourcing and manufacturing. With no more made in china caused by the ccp china virus.
Our business is currently experiencing high demand for manufacturing services, and we are connecting with new domestic partners, and with more Taiwan, and Vietnam vendors. We will also very soon expanding our own machine shop for light manufacturing and mid-volume production.
Welcoming back Manufacturing to the USA!
We are in a major historical worldwide transition when it comes to the sea change with our supply chain, a sea change away from China. China is no longer, we are very current and knowledgeable about the current state of events in china and worldwide, on a daily basis and where ccp china is headed to.
At NPDS we stay current on World Events daily, outside of the media mainstream, which unfortunately covers absolutely nothing about world events, and how its relates to business, and international business. It's our business to stay well informed, as our business is international. There is no more China partner, no more made in china products being imported.
We are reaching out for new sources and new partners, both domestically and in Taiwan and Vietnam.
Now that the dust is settling a bit, and with knowing a bit more now as to what the worlds supply chain looks like now and in the future, without China. Many of our vendor reach-outs have already responded, and they are gearing up and readying for a startup soon.
Electronics is the real issue we see with China. Vietnam is a very smart country, seeing China failing 3-5 years ago, and have been preparing. They are ready to now become the world's electronics leader.
We see the molds being constructed in USA or Taiwan, and the electronics in Vietnam. Softgoods to be made in USA or Taiwan, possibly also Vietnam.
Supply Chain Changes - "A Sea-Change"
The world is truly in transition regarding ALL supply chains. The world is now turning to USA for it's manufacturing needs, as we are now being contacted by international companies for prototypes, and manufacturing.
Product development, construction of prototypes, and full scale mass manufacturing returns to the USA.
