We’re Global Manufacturing Experts. We know Products. We know Manufacturing…
NPI is a lean organization of seasoned veterans with deep professional backgrounds in manufacturing and engineering. We know products because our early history was founded in product development and born out of GE Plastics. We know manufacturing because we have developed products from design through contract manufacturing in one seamless process that ensured successful commercialization. We know Asia because we’ve been helping clients find manufacturing and market entry solutions in that country for decades.
NPI is dedicated to one simple, fundamental underlying principle of all manufacturing:
Where and how manufacturers choose to make their products is and should be determined by their True Cost of Ownership (TCO).
Too often TCO is viewed only as a universal formula combining the investment required for Quality, Cost and Delivery (QCD). At NPI we know that TCO also must take into account costs that are specific and unique to individual companies, the “X Factor” in the equation. You must ultimately determine:
- What does the lowest TCO mean to your company in addition to Cost, Quality, Delivery? Have you accounted for indirect costs, intellectual property, capacities and capabilities, philosophies, political considerations, relationships, reputation and more?
- Do you have a plan to get there?
- How do you deliver a successful product while optimizing your TCO?
- Do you have a strategy for sustaining and growing your product throughout its life cycle?
To help you answer these questions NPI provides manufacturing expertise that can help you determine your optimum TCO, including the cost of NPI.
Lower Cost. Reliable Quality. No Hassle.
