Design-2-Part Shows Post Record Attendance

Written by

If trade show attendance is an indicator of the health of manufacturing in the United States, then the industry is off to a great start in 2018.

Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, a series of eleven annual design and contract manufacturing trade shows across the U.S., has set attendance records in each of the three shows held so far in 2018. Two of the shows, in Grapevine, Texas and Secaucus , NJ, recorded all-time record highs for D2P shows in those cities. The third show in Atlanta, Georgia posted its highest attendance since 1995.

“We are obviously thrilled with the attendance and the start that our shows have had for 2018,” said Jerry Schmidt, President of Design-2-Part Shows. “But we are also encouraged by what this could indicate for America’s manufacturing industry and the U.S. economy as a whole. What’s really encouraging about this “snap shot” is the spread of regions that have all responded: the Southwest, the Southeast, and the Northeast.”

Design-2-Part Shows provide U.S. manufacturers an efficient opportunity to meet local and national job shops and contract manufacturers face-to-face to source custom parts, components, services, and design. Exhibiting companies showcase their design-through-manufacturing services featuring more than 300 product categories for the metal, plastics, rubber and electronics industries. D2P Shows exclusively feature exhibiting job shops and contract manufacturers with manufacturing operations in the United States. Companies that do not have facilities in the U.S. are not permitted to exhibit.

D2P will continue its 2018 spring schedule with shows in Schaumburg, Illinois, Santa Clara, California, and Minneapolis, MN.

Design-2-Part Shows Announce 2017 Schedule

Written by

Design-2-Part (D2P) Shows, America’s largest design and contract manufacturing tradeshows, has announced their 2017 show schedule. The eleven event slate includes six spring shows and five fall shows.

Design-2-Part Shows provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers, managers, and purchasers an excellent opportunity to meet local and national job shops and contract manufacturers face-to-face to source custom parts, components, services, and design. Exhibiting companies will be showcasing their design-through-manufacturing services featuring more than 300 product categories for the metal, plastics, rubber and electronics industries. The shows are working shows and visitors are encouraged to bring sample parts and drawings.

The 2017 show schedule is highlighted by D2P’s long awaited return to three key manufacturing hubs. The new additions will be in Charlotte, NC; Indianapolis, IN; and San Diego, CA.

The schedule is anchored by five annual shows. D2P will hold these events in Grapevine (Dallas), TX; Atlanta, GA; Schaumburg (Chicago), IL; Santa Clara, CA; and Marlborough (Boston), MA. The D2P schedule is rounded out with three shows that revolve every two to three years.

“The scheduling stars really aligned for us,” said Jerry Schmidt, President of Design-2-Part Shows. “We are excited about being able to offer contract manufacturing solutions in the growing markets of Charlotte, Indianapolis, and San Diego. Charlotte was one of our best cities for years before it got saturated with several other manufacturing events. Recent defections have given us the opportunity to return as the only game in town. San Diego is a perfect off-year complement to our Los Angeles area shows and Indianapolis is a fast growing market that has been receiving a lot of interest from our customers.”

D2P Shows exclusively feature exhibiting job shops and contract manufacturers with manufacturing operations in the United States. Companies that do not have facilities in the U.S. are not permitted to exhibit.

As American manufacturing appears to have steadied from a growth spurt seen in 2011, contract manufacturing continues a two-year trend of positive growth.

In the recent third annual Design-2-Part (D2P) Manufacturing Trends Survey, 42% of U.S. OEMs indicated that they expect to have more outsourcing projects/purchases in the next year than they had in the past twelve months. The response was a 3% increase over the previous year and an 11% increase from the 2010 survey.

On the other hand, responders indicated a less positive trend for their business in general as only 48% said that business has grown in the past twelve months compared to 51% in 2011.

The survey also asked the OEM engineers and buyers that outsource what their company’s most important factor for measuring manufacturing outsourcing vendors was. “Quality” continues to be the number one priority with 49%, followed by “product cost” with 39%, “delivery” with 9% and “technical support” at 3%. These responses closely resembled within 2 percentage points the answers given in 2011.

Responders were asked questions about where geographically they outsource. First, they were asked, “Where do you currently outsource the majority of your projects?” The most popular answer was “local vendors-up to 100 miles” at 42%, followed by “regional vendors-up to 250 miles” at 20%, “national vendors” at 19%, and “overseas/international vendors” at 20%.

Those who answered “local vendors” were asked “what is the primary reason for using local vendors?” Over half at 56% answered “hands-on access/vendor visits.”  “Delivery time” was second at 21%, followed by “support local economy” at 13%, and “cost” at 11%.

Responders who answered “overseas/international” where asked, “What is the biggest Supply Chain risk as viewed by your company?” Fifty percent answered “delivery time,” followed by “vendor stability” at 31%, “shipping costs” with 12%, and “natural disaster” at 7%.

At the end of the survey, the engineers and buyers were given the opportunity to answer two open-ended questions. When asked, “What are the advantages for your company to outsource domestically,” there were five common themes: superior quality, better communication and supervision, reliable delivery, shorter production runs, and “Made in America” pride.

The participants were also asked, “What are the biggest challenges you face from product development through manufacturing in trying to bring a product to market.” Common answers included: industry and government regulations, smaller run quantities, and maintaining quality while dealing with price pressures.

An engineer from Effective Medical Solutions in Homer Glen, IL seemed to sum up what many others felt when he said, “Getting it right. While price counts, making a quality product is way more important. In the long run, quality will build loyalty.”

The annual Design-2-Part survey was sent in June to manufacturing engineers and purchasing personnel who attended one of the eleven D2P Shows in the last year that take place in major manufacturing hubs across the United States. The survey yielded 436 responses from a fairly even cross section across all major manufacturing industries.

As American manufacturing continues to rebound from the Great Recession, new data suggests that suppliers of custom manufacturing should also see an increase in their businesses. In a recent Design-2-Part (D2P) survey, U.S. OEMs indicated by a margin of over two to one that they expect to have more outsourcing projects/purchases in the next year than they had in the past twelve months. In addition, they selected “quality” as their most import factor in measuring outsourcing partners.

The results revealed a significant 39% response of OEMs having more outsourcing projects in the coming year than the 17% who anticipated fewer projects. Continuing a positive trend, the 39% reply was an 8% increase from the previous poll. The responders also indicated a positive trend for their business in general as 51% said that business has grown over the last year compared to only 17% who said that business has shrunk.

The survey also asked the OEM engineers and buyers that outsource what was their company’s most important factor for measuring manufacturing outsourcing vendors. “Quality” was voted number one with 48%, followed by “product cost” with 37%, “delivery” with 11% and “technical support” at 4%.

Responders were asked questions about where geographically they outsource. First, they were asked, “Where do you currently outsource the majority of your projects?” The most popular answer at 48% was “local vendors-up to 100 miles,” followed by “regional vendors-up to 250 miles” and “national vendors” both at 18%, and “overseas/international vendors” at 17%. Those who answered “local vendors” were asked “what is the primary reason for using local vendors?” Over half at 54% answered “hands-on access/vendor visits.”  “Delivery time” was second at 24%, followed by “support local economy” at 14%, and “cost” at 8%. Responders who answered “overseas/international” where asked, “What is the biggest Supply Chain risk as viewed by your company?” Fifty-six percent answered “delivery time,” followed by “vendor stability” at 31%, “shipping costs” with 12%, and “natural disaster” at 2%.

At the end of the survey, the engineers and buyers were given the opportunity to answer an open-ended question. When asked, “What are the advantages for your company to outsource domestically,” there were four common themes: quality, communication, delivery time, and U.S. pride. Several OEMs also cited the capabilities of domestic suppliers to produce “smaller production runs” as an advantage.

An engineer from SAJE Technology in Hoffman Estates, IL seemed to sum up what many others felt when he said, “Being able to shake hands and be face-to-face with those responsible for the manufacturing of our products, plus direct supervision of production and quality. And, using ‘Made in the USA’ against our biggest competitors who manufacture overseas…and we still do it for less.”

The annual Design-2-Part survey was sent in June to over 10,000 manufacturing engineers and purchasing personnel who attended one of twelve D2P Shows that took place in a major manufacturing hub across the United States in the last year. The responders came from a fairly even cross section across all major manufacturing industries.

Design-2-Part Shows are America’s largest and longest running design and contract manufacturing tradeshows. The shows provide design engineers, manufacturing engineers, manufacturing managers, and purchasers their best opportunity of the year to meet local and national job shops and contract manufacturers for the purpose of sourcing custom parts, components, design, prototypes and assemblies. Job shops and contract manufacturing companies exhibit design-through-manufacturing services covering more than 300 product categories for the metals, plastics, rubber, and electronics industries.
