QT Manufacturing is a domestic manufacturer that specializes in helping companies reduce their lead times and decrease their costs. We have been in business for over 32 years and have a team of experienced engineers and production dedicated to helping our clients succeed. We offer a variety of services including:
- Plastic Molding: Your manufacturer should be able to provide you with high-quality plastic molding services from low to high volumes based on your requirements. During the plastic molding process, molten plastic is injected into a mold and allowed to cool. This results in a product that has the desired shape and size.
- Custom Injection Molds: In order to create a custom injection mold, your domestic manufacturer will use a computer-aided design (CAD) program. This allows them to create a mold specifically designed for your product. We can repair your mold in our facility reducing downtime and keeping products flowing without interruption.
- CNC Production: As a contract manufacturer, QT Manufacturing offers CNC production services for your low and high-volume metal component needs. CNC machines are computer-controlled and can create precise parts and products.
- Prototype Solutions: If you need prototype solutions to prove out your product, your domestic manufacturer should be able to provide you with the services you need. This includes 3D printing and rapid prototyping.

Advantages of Working with a Domestic Manufacturer
In today’s business climate, more and more companies are looking for ways to reduce costs and increase efficiency. One way to do this is by outsourcing manufacturing operations to a contract manufacturer.
There are many benefits of working with a domestic manufacturer, including:
1. Cost savings
When you outsource manufacturing to a domestic contract manufacturer, you can save on labor costs. In addition, these manufacturers often have access to lower-cost materials and components. For example, domestic manufacturers can often source components at a lower cost than your company can. This cost savings can be passed on to you, the customer.
2. Faster turnaround times
Because domestic manufacturers are located in the same country, you can avoid the delays associated with international shipping. This can mean a faster turnaround time for your product. During the manufacturing process, there may be unexpected delays. But because these manufacturers are located close by, they can quickly resolve any issues that arise.
3. Improved communication
When you outsource manufacturing to a domestic contract manufacturer, communication is easier. This is because you and the contract manufacturer are in the same time zone and speak the same language. This can be a big advantage over working with an international contract manufacturer, where language barriers and time differences can make communication more difficult.
4. Easier quality control
It’s easier to maintain quality control when you work with this type of manufacturer. This is because you can easily visit the manufacturing facility and see how your product is being made. You can also more easily resolve any quality issues that may arise. If there is a problem with the product, you can simply pick up the phone and speak to someone at the domestic manufacturer.
5. Greater flexibility
Domestic contract manufacturers are often more flexible than international ones. This is because they’re located close by, which makes it easier to make changes to the manufacturing process. For example, if your company decides to change the design of its metal parts, a domestic manufacturer can easily implement the changes.
6. Steady supply chains
When you work with a domestic contract manufacturer, you can be sure that your product will be manufactured on time and on budget. These manufacturers typically have well-established supply chains. If there are any disruptions in the supply chain, the contract manufacturers can quickly find an alternate supplier.
7. Increasing capacity
Due to their economies of scale, domestic manufacturers can often produce large quantities of products at a lower cost than your company can. This can be a big advantage when your company is looking to increase capacity. And because the manufacturers are located closer than international partners, you can be sure that your product will be delivered on time.
8. Easy access to specialized expertise
As your company grows, you may need to outsource manufacturing to a domestic manufacturer with specialized expertise. For instance, if your company decides to start manufacturing a new product, you may need to find a domestic contract manufacturer with experience in that particular area. By working with a domestic manufacturer, you can be sure that your product will be manufactured according to your specifications.
Working with a domestic contract manufacturer has many advantages. These manufacturers can save you money, provide a faster turnaround time, and offer greater flexibility. Of course, you also get ‘Made in America’ bragging rights.
When choosing a domestic manufacturer, it’s important to find one that is reputable and has experience in your industry.
