Whether an OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) is looking to outsource for the first time, change partners or dual source, it is essential to select the right CEM to suit your business and projects.


Benefits of using a CEM (Contract Equipment Manufacturer) 


1.    Reduces operational expenditure

When using a CEM, OEMs save on numerous overheads including rent, heating, lighting, electricity, staff and training. This is a significant benefit and reduces the time and cost implications of finding and managing the staff.



2.    Reduces capital expenditure

OEMs save on additional equipment required to manufacture at the scale they require. They also save on machine servicing, maintenance and upgrade costs. Keeping up with the industry’s rapidly changing pace requires continuous investment in new machinery and training and this is another major benefit partnering with a CEM provides.



3.    Reduces stock costs

Not having to hold stock provides a major benefit to OEMs because they only need to buy what they need, when they need it. CEMs have excellent relationships with their suppliers and often have greater buying power. Alongside limited stock holding, working with an CEM will enable the OEM to invest in other business areas as the company would not have as much money tied up in inventory.



4.    CEMs provide added value

CEMs provide an abundance of technical support and design guidance which can save OEMs time and money. CEMs share their industry knowledge and best practices to the benefit of the OEM.
