Custom Manufacturing

Global Sourcing

Global sourcing is a process employed by companies from well-developed nations, such as USA, to obtain merchandise and services from the world market, specifically from developing countries that offer low-cost manufacturing and manpower fees.

Parts Manufacturer

Con-Tech is a parts manufacturer offering industrial parts, but we are also specialists in contract production of high precision stainless steel, specialty metal, and plastic components. Send us your ideas and find out how our custom manufacturing could be your best choice.

Contract Manufacturing

Outsourcing production of your parts or products to a Contract manufacturing company requires a special kind of relationship with a manufacturer…

Outsource Manufacturing

For many businesses, time, cost, staff, machinery, facility, all contribute together or in part to reasons why they prefer not to undertake their own manufacturing. Outsourcing manufacturing becomes their logical alternative.

Precision Machining

Many different companies rely on precision machining, and customers utilize the benefits of precision machining, even if they may not know it. Components that are precisely machined are used in a wide variety of products and they are fabricated by the product manufacturer, or often times outsourced – ordered from another machine shop by the company creating the product.

Procurement Services

Con-Tech is proud of the extra effort we put into the sourcing service we provide our customers, which in general is the managing of an overseas supply chain to provide cost reductions.
