EMS for startups is a service that provides start-up companies with the resources and expertise they need to develop and manufacture electronic products. POE works with a variety of clients, including startups, established corporations, and government agencies. However, startups face unique challenges when it comes to developing and manufacturing electronics. These challenges include limited resources, lack of expertise, and the need to bring products to market quickly.
POE can meet the PCB manufacturing and EMS needs of start-up companies. Our mission is to enable start-up companies to scale up through reliable, customized and cost-effective electronics manufacturing services. And has the expertise to optimize the design-to-manufacturing process to quickly respond to your changing needs while achieving product-market fit and scaling.
The services we can provide for start-up companies include:
Fast turnaround and no minimum order quantities
We understand startups need rapid prototyping to test and iterate designs. POE's standard for PCB prototypes for startups is a turnaround time of 3 business days or less. We offer minimum order quantities as low as 1-50 pieces for initial prototypes to help you iterate quickly without incurring high costs.
Seamless migration from prototype to series production
We don't want trouble as your company scales. We allow you to move seamlessly from the prototype we build for you to series production. Our flexible ordering system allows you to incrementally increase orders as needed.
Design and Supply Chain Optimization
Our experts can review your PCB design and bill of materials to identify potential optimizations that can reduce manufacturing cost and risk. We can also leverage our extensive supply chain to source components cost-effectively, with guaranteed supply and price stability as you expand.
Flexible manufacturing and logistics model
We offer make-to-order, make-to-stock and consignment manufacturing models according to the company's needs and growth plans. We can fulfill your order directly from our factory or through our global distribution and logistics network.
Dedicated Startup Account Manager
We assign each start-up client a dedicated account manager who serves as your single point of contact to navigate our systems, prioritize your orders and stay abreast of your company's needs and product roadmap. This representative will form a trusted partnership with you as you scale.
At the earliest stage, we will support you with:
• Rapid PCB prototyping - 3 day turnaround for 1-50 unit quantities
• Breadboard using off-the-shelf components
• Design for Manufacturability (DFM) review to optimize your PCB layout
• PCB assembly and routing according to your schematic
• Installation and mechanical considerations based on your cabinet needs
Mass production service:
Once you've proven product-market fit and are ready to scale, we can:
• Production of PCBs in quantities as low as 100 pieces
• Find and purchase components based on your BOM
• Assemble and route PCBs and circuit boards
• Perform functional and quality testing
• Packed and ready for shipping/distribution
• Gradually scale up production as you grow
• Negotiating supply agreements and price stabilization for key components
• Consignment or make-to-stock solutions available based on lead time and demand
• Establish key performance indicators and scorecards to continuously improve our partnerships
EMS for Startup services are designed to ease the challenges of designing, prototyping and scaling products through fast turnaround, continuous optimization, operational flexibility and dedicated support from an account manager. Please let me know if you have any questions. I'd love to discuss how we can get your next project off the ground and scale seamlessly as you grow.
