Firstly, you need a safety net.
One of the best ways to prepare for an extenuating situation is to work with a metaphorical safety net—a chemical contract manufacturer. Working with an experienced chemical contract manufacturer can give you the professional chemical equipment and resources you need to continue serving your customers at any time. When you have a secondary or accidental position, you can assure your customers that their chemical products will continue to pass through the production line, no matter what happens.
There is a more optimistic reason to look for such a safety net. "Prepare for the worst and hope for the best" is also an effective premise. For the chemical companies with aggressive growth plans, there are more reasons to work with a toll mixer who understands your business.
With a "safety net" of additional capabilities, redundancy and flexible purchasing, warehousing and distribution options, your company will meet or exceed sales expectations and growth plans.
Choosing a contingency planning partner
Whether you are optimistic or determined to protect your most basic business interests, the most important thing is to find a suitable partner before reaching an agreement with a contract manufacturer.
Below are some of the issues you should discuss with potential partners, from the most basic to more subtle considerations.
Does the company have the appropriate equipment, capabilities, experience and quality assurance to produce all (or most) of the products on your production line?
What is the company's delivery history and on-time records?
Does the manufacturer have experience with technology transfer packages?
Is the company culture compatible with your organization?
What kind of safety and compliance history does the company have?
Is customer review allowed? (Most reputable contract manufacturers allow or even encourage customer visits and process reviews.)
Is the company open to cooperation, and is it willing to consider entering new markets or investing in new equipment to respond to suitable opportunities?
If your answer to all these questions is yes, then please rest assured that you have chosen a great chemical contract manufacturer to assist with your emergency plan. If you answer "no" several times, you may want to find another company. When looking for the perfect partner you can trust, never make mistakes.
