Custom or “Made to Order” describes the manufacture of goods upon customer demand unlike items that are more commonly manufactured as stocked products, in which goods are fully manufactured and stocked in inventory, awaiting a customer order. Custom or “Made To Order” products customer order, are assembled, packed, and shipped to the specifications of our clientele whether that is the government, military or a commercial source. Such orders might be for single units or large batches, and can be made in the USA and thus Berry Amendment compliant depending on the type of item, and the customer’s requirements.
One main benefit with working with Sutler Corporation is that we have a long standing history of making it our priority to understand the specific needs of our clients and often in building those relationships we have had to develop a custom or semi-custom product. This might include the option to choose colors, materials, and even size. It might also include the ability to add upgraded features, particularly in the case of a technology product.
Often custom or “made to order” products or items require more methodical production due to need of prototyping and getting ultimate approval thus a potential customer should factor in additional lead time. In most cases, price or customization advantages are enough to offset this inconvenience to the customer. Once the item has been developed and the item is put into production, future orders will result in quicker delivery times and thus ultimate shorter lead times.
