When it comes to outsourcing an OEM panel builder, it’s important to consider several important factors to help ensure you make the right decision.
Firstly, you’ll want to make sure that you choose a reputable custom panel shop where OEM control panels are an area of expertise. Your chosen panel partner will also need to understand that the OEM will most definitely be experts of their desired product, and should have a thorough understanding of the industry and its mechanics.
It’s also important to note, however, that OEM does not have resources to create the desired product at the most competitive level.
Working with a panel shop means ensuring your partner has a comprehensive understanding of the design ideas and knows exactly what the OEM wants.
The entire building process allows the OEM to offload the electrical design component while focusing on their competencies. This is ideal for the OEM because in the end, they get a more competitive product. And, it’s more ideal for the customer as they get a product of higher quality. But, all in all, you’ll need a quality panel shop because they essentially become your electrical team.
With that being said, here’s how to ensure you choose the right panel shop for yourself and your needs:
Choose a partner with all certifications:
It’s critical that you select a panel partner that is equipped with all of the necessary certifications and qualifications to get the job done right. By working with a company that maintains a broad list of certifications, panels can be shipped ready-to-go just about anywhere in the world.
Choose a partner with extensive experience:
More years in business means these company engineers and technicians will have the experience and expertise to deliver effective OEM control panels and solutions in any industry.
Choose a partner that can support you through it all:
You should be able to count on exceptional service. Whenever you need it, in any location.
Choose a partner who uses quality components at a competitive price point:
Components used should be coming from trusted suppliers, including your preferred manufacturers. Additionally, you should be able to get a cost-effective deal on your partner’s service that will make your business even more competitive.
From concept to completion, you’ll need someone who will be there to support you throughout the whole journey - because this process will be a complex one.
Below is a break-down of the typical manufacturing, delivery and support process:
Planning: You’ll be expected to fill in a form or call the company to let them know exactly what you need. The first stages are very important in determining how efficient the production will be.
Quote: After sending out design specifications with features you want included, you will be returned a quote.
Design: An engineering team will take your design ideas to bring the product into fruition.
Delivery: A convenient delivery date and time will be selected for you.
Support: This is what you’ll need 24 hours, 7 days a week. You should be able to count on any support you may need down the line.
