Re-shoring Case Study

Reshoring Volume Manufacturing in U.S.

As an example, Zebulon Solutions helped a leading manufacturer of smart thermostats re-shore manufacturing to the United States.  Instead of producing the customer’s products at a Chinese ODM, we were able to help them place their operation and production with a North American contract manufacturer.

To do this, we first had to help our customer reconstruct their documentation package, generate a clean Bill Of Material, and develop a test plan and an assembly flow.

For the customer’s RFQ exercise, we investigated twenty global contract manufacturers, requested ten quotes and ultimately selected a tier-2 contract manufacturer with operations in both the United States and Mexico. In addition to the CM search, we also helped identify and qualify other key suppliers such as displays and plastics and other product components.

We then involved the engineering team to project, and designed and built several unique thermal chambers which could be controlled by the thermostat being tested. We also provided DFM support at multiple stages of the NPI process.
