Quality, Speed, or Cost? Which Is Most Important to You?

We’re sure you’ve heard the saying: 

“Quality, Speed, or Cost? Pick two, because you can’t have all three.” 

We understand the premise behind this concept of, “You can have a high quality product and you can get it quickly, but you’re gonna have to pay for it,” or “We can do it fast and cheap, but don’t expect high quality.”

However, we don’t necessarily agree with it. 

Our goal is to truly provide all three: high quality, at a good price, in a reasonable amount of time. We know we are not the “cheapest” option, but that doesn’t mean we’re not a good value. We build quality products with great customer service and our pricing reflects that.

We ask ourselves, from time to time, what makes us unique in printed circuit board assembly? And that question often leads to another: 

Why do our customers keep coming back?

One of our greatest assets is our ability to retain customers. We’ve worked with some of our customers for more than 15 years on multiple projects. What our customers tell us is that we are not just a manufacturer who produces a product at a set cost; we are an extension of their business. We are a design team that offers expertise, opinions, and designs specifically for manufacturability. We can even help with part obsolescence.

A better question might be, “What is the cost of poor manufacturing?”

Or “What is the cost of not hitting a deadline?” Or even “What’s the cost of poor customer service?” In our opinion, these things far outweigh the individual per piece price for a board or box build.

The idea of having to redesign something because it was rushed or the finished product not turning out exactly as it was intended is implausible for us. Quality is always our focus, and we don’t let time slip or budgets get out of hand. That’s just how we do business.

We would love the opportunity to quote your next project.
