Contract manufacturing can offer numerous advantages, but it requires careful evaluation and considerations to ensure a successful and profitable partnership. This session will guide you through the process of effectively identifying contract manufacturers, avoiding common pitfalls, initiating a successful search for an ideal partner, and how to navigate contracts/agreements.
