In late 2014, Silicon Valley business owners formed the Concept2Manufacturing partnership to provide end-to-end manufacturing services designed to reduce costs, speed time to market.
With HP, Symantec and others making headlines recently as details of each companies’ breaking apart are released, news of eight Silicon Valley professionals joining forces to provide end-to-end manufacturing services may have a counterbalancing effect.
Then again, the principals behind Concept2Manufacturing, a new Silicon Valley partnership comprising of seven companies, including original equipment manufacturing firm Evolve Manufacturing Technologies; design, engineering and manufacturing firm SMP Technologies; Leap Design Group; Dependable Plastics, a plastic fabrication company; reliability engineering firm Ops A La Carte; microprocessor-based hardware and software design firm Microsystems Development Technologies; engineering recruitment firm Solo Point Solutions; PR firm Schott Communications; and veteran sales consultant, Tom Smith, have a history of going against the norm to create opportunities and advance what’s possible in their respective fields.
“I’ve long been a proponent of onshoring manufacturing,” noted partner Noreen King from her office in Fremont the other day, “not only for the favorable impact onshoring has on our economy, but also for the way it simplifies supply chain operations and makes doing business more affordable. This new partnership will make the case for onshoring even more compelling.”
C2M Business Development Consultant Tom Smith agreed, adding, “What we’ve done here is to offer a one-stop-shopping alternative for bringing products to market, from design concept to product completion. That we’re located in Silicon Valley — at the heart of so much innovation — will make it easier than ever for companies to oversee the process of bringing their products to market.”
Concept2Manufacturing, which was formed in October 2014, will work with funded start ups as well as more established companies in the medical, semiconductor, defense, and other industries. Its goal will be to simplify (and make more efficient) the supply chain process and mitigate the inherent risks that global supply chains pose to companies by ensuring that every phase of the product lifecycle is completed right here in Silicon Valley (as opposed to China and other overseas locations, where still much of the work is done). This proximity will give customers more immediate control over the production process and will have a significant impact on reducing the cost of bringing products to market.
