In the past, everything that we have sold has been made exclusively in our factory. But we took on this contract to make some products we would not be able to completely make in our factory, due to a lack of the requisite equipment. So we are going to have to figure out a solution to this problem, as the contract can prove to be quite lucrative. I need to try to find sheet metal stamping services in the area and find one that is going to be able to work with us to fulfill this contract in a timely manner.
I want to enter into some negotiations about the price and the timetable for having the parts produced quickly, because time is of the essence. I think we should have figured out the logistics of fulfilling this contract before we decided to take it on. But I am not the boss and I do not call the shots. I just have to try to make sure things work out right when decisions like this are made. It makes for a kind of stressful job, but it is one that I do my best at.
Anyway, after looking up the numbers and addresses of some of the local factories that do work with sheet metal, I have decided to browse online and see if any of these companies have websites. I fill like a website would give me a better idea of the products they can make, and other information about the company, without taking up as much time as a phone call would take. So, I think that will be the basis of deciding who I am going to call for the job. It might be a few companies, but in the end, I am going to have to find the right candidate.
