If you have any familiarity with the world of industrial packaging, you may have heard the acronym “OEM”. OEM stands for “original equipment manufacturer”. Every OEM requires packaging for their mission critical product, and choosing the right packaging provider is critical to their success.
When choosing a packaging provider, OEM’s should do their research and understand who has the capabilities to design, test, manufacture and manage packaging for their product. FCA makes custom boxes, crates, skids, pallets, and more, in addition to using a wide range of materials, such as wood, steel, and a hybrid of the two. FCA offers the complete packaging spectrum of products and services from design, development and manufacture of packaging for OEM equipment, to the management of returnable packaging in the supply chain.
Outsourcing your packaging to packaging experts such as FCA is going to save a huge amount of money. Dedicated, full – service packaging providers work for OEM’s in part because of economies of scale. Economies of scale basically refers to the idea that the bigger a business is, the more they will see cost advantages due to their size, output, and scale of operation.
In other words, because dedicated packaging companies have all of the necessary infrastructure in place to make packaging and run their business, the cost for them to produce a wooden crate will be much lower than if an individual business attempted to do the same. They would have needed to spend the money to hire knowledgeable workers, pay for the necessary equipment, and take the valuable time to perform a task that they could simply hire another firm to complete for them.
With the right company, it is perfectly customizable to your needs and easily affordable, making it a great packaging option for any business.
