Manufacturing A New Product from an Invention

Manufacturing A New Product from an Invention

The difference between an idea and a product is manufacturing. A great idea makes no money until it is produced and sold in multiple units. Understanding the options of how your idea can be manufactured can put additional money in your pocket. The knowledge can make it easier to license your idea. It can enable you to get a higher royalty. It is invaluable for finding investors. As your idea is engineered for manufacturing, you may find new ways to patent and protect it. Finally, knowing the manufacturing process for your invention can help you increase your idea's chances for market success. Read more...

Unlke most manufacturers, we will reject manufacturing request if we feel (based on our experience) the invention will lose the client substantial money. We want your business, but not at the expense of an inventor losing his/her life savings.

Richard Donas
Manufacturer
written by Richard Donas , October 17, 2012

I spent 2 years developing a specialized welding tool. I didn't realize the mistake I made when I sent my design to several overseas factories for a quote. After speaking with a gentleman from L.R.Caldwell International,Inc here in the USA, I realized how little the NDA is valued.
Through their insight, I quickly learned to develop a relationship prior to handing a design over to anyone.

They have built 50 units for me while insisting I first test the market prior to over investing in this design. They also helped re-designed my product to make it cheaper to product and more appealing to my customers.

Ultra Source International
written by Pete S , September 18, 2012

I just used Ultrasource International to create a new yard game. They were able to send me a sample within a month and ended up tweaking the design to make it more durable. It took about 3 months for me to get my first shipment in. I think they can manufacture just about anything...
