Contract manufacturing is hiring another company to build and/or assemble your product. It is also known as outsource manufacturing, or outsourcing. There are numerous advantages to contract manufacture, such as reduced costs and elimination of overhead, but there are potential pitfalls as well. Anyone considering contract manufacture must be able to evaluate the company they are hiring and implement safeguards to ensure quality. View our Glossary for more manufacturing terminology.


Yes. We are excited to work with funded startups and early stage ventures with proven track records of entrepreneurial success. Building a startup is challenging and requires a good product idea, a well thought out go-to-market strategy, and the time and resources to bring that vision to life. We are always open to exploring your product idea and go-to-market strategy.


When working with your account manager, we will provide you with a quotation that includes prototyping, tooling, shipping, packaging and per unit cost for manufacturing.

As a contract manufacturer, our main objective is to manufacture great products for companies that we believe in. Our pricing structure for manufacturing costs include an all-in price per unit.

However, we do consider the complexity of every project, and we will alert you if there is a fee to quote depending on the amount of work it takes for our team to get quotations for you.

We do charge for design and development projects. One of the services we offer is Design for Manufacturing (DFM), which allows us to optimize your product plans specifically for manufacturing purposes. Design and development projects that include these fees are projects to which we will allocate meaningful design or engineering resources in getting your product ready for manufacture. Prices vary depending on the project scope and are always included in our detailed initial quote so there are no surprises along the way.

Prototyping, tooling, and production costs vary on the product type, materials used, and complexity of the project. All these costs are detailed throughout the process of working with your account manager in advance.


Based on your product goals and initiatives, we can evaluate and present multiple options to meet your speed to market goals and/or price constraints.  Our experienced team will evaluate packaging and fulfillment options and even help improve your DFM to facilitate the most efficient way to move products through your supply chain to the consumer.

Genimex has experience with all manner of logistics and fulfillment. While we do not provide direct fulfillment services, we have a network of providers and partners that can help you evaluate the pros and cons of potential warehousing and fulfillment solutions.


Timelines depend entirely on the scope of the project. Each product is different, and our clients’ needs vary greatly. It’s impossible for us to give any kind of meaningful range for project timelines overall. In your initial consultation with Genimex, we’ll provide a custom timeline built specifically for the scope of your project that will help you plan accordingly while your product goes through every step of the manufacturing process.


All intellectual property remains in your full control. We sign NDAs with our clients and vetted factories to ensure the propriety and privacy of your IP.

When Genimex is contracted to complete any design and development work on a product, all IP ownership rights belong to the client once the work has been paid for. Tooling ownership rights also revert to the client once work has been paid for.
