There are no "one size fits all" solutions in electronic contract manufacturing. Most original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) review their electronics manufacturing activities and pick the electronic contract manufacturer whose business model, locations and capabilities represents the best fit for the bulk of that business.

At Milwaukee Electronics, we feel business fit is important. We also recognize that it can be difficult to determine which contract manufacturer is the best fit if you don’t have a good understanding of the range of options. We’ve created this section to provide some information on best practices and key decision criteria.
