DirecSource is Working with Outdoor Design Firms

Designers collaborating with DirecSource to improve time to market

BOSTON, MA. (April 4, 2013) – DirecSource, working collaboratively with product designers and engineers, is reducing time to market from product concept to completion, allowing brands to create, design and deliver more efficiently.

DirecSource provides access to relevant manufacturing competencies which saves product engineers precious time. Designers and engineers who work with DirecSource are armed with the necessary information to develop factory specific, manufacturing ready specifications.

“This close working relationship allows us to ensure that products are being designed for manufacturability. One of our key objectives is to identify the most appropriate factory for each job in advance and alert them of the upcoming project so that they are ready to go once the designs are approved,” said Ed Ring, COO of DirecSource.

Rocketfish Designs, an early partner with DirecSource on this initiative, says its branded clients are seeing significant savings in both cost and time.

“Collaboration with DirecSource throughout the design phase allows us to present our clients with ‘production ready’ 3D CAD files that can go straight to the factory,” said TJ Gray, owner of RocketFish Designs, a leading performance sports industrial design firm based in New Hampshire. “Generally, once the designs are submitted there is limited back and forth, so the manufacturing process can begin.”

The goal is to offer unique collaboration opportunities in which complimentary services work together to create shared success.

DirecSource has built an extensive global network allowing access to opportunities to help grow businesses. Through efficient operations, DirecSource helps brands to become more nimble and responsive in their markets.

DirecSource offers product engineering and designs firms many advantages such as access to a diverse network of manufacturers, a broad range of materials, and manufacturing expertise.
