OUTSOURCE WITH VRC

Cut costs without giving up control.

With VRC as your outsource for precision machining, assembly and value-added services, you'll reduce costs while still maintaining control over the work. We can serve as your product and process improvement experts or fill in as your machining and manufacturing department during long-term production runs.

Outsourcing enables you to deliver your products on-time and on-budget without overextending your resources. Here are just a few of the many advantages of outsourcing with VRC.

Better control over fixed costs

You'll know exactly what your production run costs up-front. There's no need to worry about changes to your fixed costs.

Greater return on investment

Leverage VRC's expertise and resources as a manufacturing partner so you can focus on other aspects of your business.

Reduced capital investment

There's no need to buy additional expensive equipment for production runs. Whether they're short- or long-term projects, use VRC's resources.

Reduced transportation costs

Raw materials are heavy, bulky and expensive to transport. Machining early in the process reduces weight, thus reducing costs.

Reduced material and inventory costs

In-house manufacturing and assembly requires carrying inventory of materials. It ties up resources such as machinery, floor space and working capital; resources that could be used more effectively elsewhere.

Reduced overhead

Outsourcing with VRC enables you to reduce your overhead without a change in sales volume. Overhead includes raw materials, machine purchases, floor space, inspection, supervision, maintenance, insurance, depreciation, taxes, etc. Time and effort normally spent on overhead can be allocated to more productive areas, such as design, research and marketing.

Specialization advantage

Regain focus on your own areas of expertise by offloading your more specialized machining, manufacturing, and assembly responsibilities to VRC.

Strategic advantages

Outsourcing with VRC allows your management team to focus on the strategic parts of your business.
