Welcome – Who are we?
Welcome to the Axelsys Blog. We are starting our blog to coincide with the launch of our new website. Here’s an introduction to Axelsys. With countless EDS/ODM and EMS companies in the industry you may wonder how we stand out? What makes us unique anyway?
Well, we started the company to fill needs that we observed in Design and Manufacturing. The largest gap was meeting aggressive low cost models which are commonly done by outsourcing overseas, but quality typically declines to levels that are unacceptable. In some cases, overseas outsourcing is just not possible due to lower volumes even though the cost model is attractive.
Control Costs, Preserve Quality
We could see that the ability to control costs and preserve high quality was keenly desired by our customers, but hard to find in the industry. Our mission was to provide services that achieved these goals. How did we do it? By developing a Hybrid Service Model (HSM). Our HSM controls costs by using low-cost domestic or China-based resources and tightly managing projects from our US headquarters in Fremont, California (in Silicon Valley). This renders the low-cost models desired while our senior project management team supports our customers and tightly manages our service providers to maintain the highest quality levels.
Other customers are limited to domestic suppliers because their volumes are too low for overseas CMs. With our carefully managed overseas service providers we are able to release low to medium volume programs. Our long standing relationships with trusted suppliers allow us to slip-in smaller programs on the manufacturing line. And because we maintain control of the program from the USA we can maintain high quality and yields that you expect from domestic suppliers.
