Before awarding your program to a contract manufacturer, you want to know if they share your values and commitment to quality, and if they can add value to your program. Through Early Supplier Involvement (ESI), KAL Manufacturing demonstrates exactly how our expertise, processes, and capabilities will:
KAL offers ESI to support OEM engineering requirements in the alpha, beta, and prototype builds. We review drawings upfront for manufacturability and prior to initial production release to identify and correct potential problem areas. By enhancing the development and innovation process, we help customers build a quality program with the best concept-to-customer cycle time and lowest costs possible. ESI also helps ensure that we maintain our performance, quality, and delivery throughout the life of the program.
