The Belgian company designs and produces high quality metal constructions. They have a broad product range (stairs, rails, (automated) gates, fences, ...) and produce both for companies and private persons.
They wish to find partners that can manufacture the products the Belgian company designs for their customers under a manufacturing agreement.
The Belgian company was founded in 1990 and is specialised in the design and production of metal products. They work with iron, inox, aluminium, messing, ... With these materials they produce all possible welding and construction works, both for consumers and for industry. These can be stairs, handrails, guardrails, gates, automation of closures, access control, windows, doors, shop interiors, display constructions and any custom design project.
The Belgian company can take care of the entire production process. They have their own design team, that can design custom products depending on the wishes of the client. They have local production and a department that takes care of coating and the end finishing of the product.
They are looking for manufacturing partners that produce the same products as them. The partner doesn't need to produce everything the Belgian company has on offer. A specialization in one product or one product segment of the product range of the Belgian company is also of interest to them.
The company is open to cooperation due to limited production capacity, price-based competition and a wide product range, which makes in-depth specialization in certain products difficult, They sometimes reach out to partners to manufacture the custom products their design team developed. They already started this kind of cooperation with companies abroad with success for both parties. And they are now looking for additional partners under a manufacturing agreement.
- Type of partner sought: The Belgian company is looking for a partner with expertise in production. Quality of the manufactured products often needs to be high as the company has a lot of private persons as clients. They also have clients active in industry, where quality and finish is less important.
It would be preferable that the company is able to TIG-weld or to weld semi-automatically.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: They are open to different types of partners. Both companies that offer all products of the Belgian company's product range or companies that offer only one or a couple of the products of the Belgian company are of interest. And companies that are able to finish the products with coating as well as companies that cannot, are possibly interesting for the Belgian company.
They propose the following cooperation:
The Belgian company delivers an email with the design of the custom product (this is generally a custom product that only needs to be produced once) and the partner company manufactures the product following this design. The price is determined beforehand by a quotation of the partner.
The Belgian company prefers that the logistics are included in the manufacturing invoice and managed by the partner. But, if this is not possible, they are also willing to take care of the logistics.
There are no exclusivity demands.
They are generally not the cheapest company in this segment on the Belgian market because they offer high quality work. They are also able to produce standard quality and thus for a lower price, for example if working for an industrial application.
They have their own design department that produces 3D-designs which give the client a good image of what the final product will be like.
For potential partners it is interesting to know they already have the proposed kind of cooperation with different partners at the moment, with success.
