OEM/ODM Service

We usually hear about OEM, ODM… but what does it exactly mean???

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer, and ODM stands for Original Design Manufacturing. Generally speaking, OEM projects produce the item per customers’ requests; ODM is designed and produces the item which the customer needs.

For OEM project, you could share your designs or drawings which is well designed to the factory like D&D Builders Hardware Co., let us know the quantity, material, finish and usage of the product, after our evaluation, we will give you some comments, for example, whether it is going to shrink after injection or if it is acceptable to be produced in the shape you require… Later on we will start quoting, if you have a target price for your new item, it will be great if you are willing to share with us, so we could go straight and try to evaluate and see what we could do to match your target, in order to have the win-win situation.

The most representative project which we had cooperated before is the project of TOUCH’N HOLD STORM DOOR CLOSER, this is the start of D&D to take care of OEM projects, and our customer is very satisfied with our service and quality.

For ODM project, please share your idea with us, we will evaluate the possibility and design first, after the items are approved, we will start quoting, once the price is acceptable, and the order is confirmed, we will produce and testing till the product is good to be produced, and for sure, we will share the result with you, and it would take times too, but you will be definitely enjoy the business with us.

No matter OEM or ODM, D&D will be your choice, since we have an experienced engineering team, which could give you advice and comments while developing and producing processes. You do not have to worry about whether we are capable enough or not, because we have a professional team and many equipment for different processes.
