An original design manufacturer is a company that designs and manufactures a product. Then, as specified, another company makes iterations and rebrands the part for sale under their name.
For example, if you search for iPhone chargers on the internet, you will find multiple companies selling the same product. According to each buyer’s specifications, the manufacturer makes slight changes to the product, including color, packaging, and brand name so different companies can sell the product.
Are there benefits of using Original Design Manufacturing (ODM)?
Yes, there are benefits to using ODM manufacturing. Although it may be challenging to stand out among competitors, ODM Manufacturing requires fewer customer resources to create a product. In addition, there are not many overhead costs for outsourcing your manufacturing process, which reduces the cost of making your product and focuses more time and money on other business entities
