Choosing the Right Manufacturer

As the manufacturing industry continues to grow and evolve, it is important to know what factors to consider when choosing your supplier.

According to Thomas Net, every company should address several elements when evaluating or selecting a manufacturer, including production capacity, quality, performance, and risk. When considering production capacity, our O’Neal Manufacturing Services (OMS) facilities plan accordingly with resource forecasts and sales and operation planning (S&OP) processes in order to meet production demand. While ISO 9001:2000 is the current industry certification standard, all OMS facilities are either ISO 9001: 2008 or ISO 9001:2015 certified, proving that we are constantly striving to set ourselves apart from the industry norm. OMS offers complex supply chain management and integration through tested manufacturing processes for development and production.

With OMS, you will have a supply chain partner working with every level of your company to strategically reduce your total manufacturing costs and deliver high-quality products when scheduled.

We provide a multitude of services including a process-driven manufacturing culture, reinvestment in technologically advanced equipment, extensive in-house 2nd and 3rd step processing capabilities, new product development engineering collaboration, and Advanced Product Quality Planning (APQP).

OMS offers strong continuity plans to mitigate risks and eliminate supply chain disruptions.

With multiple strategically-located North American manufacturing plants, quality and production are supported through manufacturing redundancy. Management of raw material supply offers multifaceted approaches to control material costs from the mills, exploit material buys, and manage inventory. By developing business continuity plans that support value-added collaboration and sustainability in the supply relationship, OMS brings significant value to strategic sourcing and procurement throughout the part life cycle.

As OMS core values reveal, we hold ourselves to high performance expectations and are customer-driven.
