Electronic Manufacturing Services (EMS) Industry
EMS providers are making an important role and a significant impact on manufacturing concerns worldwide.
EMS companies function as strategic partners to Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs), Original Design Manufacturers (ODMs) and Original Brand Manufacturers (OBMs) by providing them with a full range of services from contract design and manufacturing to post-manufacturing services. By using the services of EMS providers, OEMs, ODMs and OBMs can concentrate on their core competencies such as research and development, brand building and marketing.
Outsourcing to EMS providers also enables OEMs, ODMs and OBMs to gain access to the latest equipment, process knowledge and manufacturing know-how without having to make substantial investments. The trend in manufacturing partnership has been growing steadily as OEMs, ODMs and OBM's strive to reduce time-to-market, time-to-volume, flexibility and quality in the advanced technology evolution services and strategic business solutions to maintain their competitive advantages.
The EMS Industry has shown a significant growth not only in investment but also extensive development in technology where most of the operations has now shifted from the board level operation (components) to providing full range of services including contract design, prototyping, final assembly, configuration, repair and after sales services. With additional high capital investment and by diversifying into major R&D activities, some of the companies have geared up with the technology by producing more high mix low volume products for the medical, aerospace and instrumentation applications.
