90174-ManufacturingLast year over 42 million units were packaged and assembled by Goodwill Manufacturing for our business partners. There are many reasons companies choose to outsource work to Goodwill. Whether we’re handling engine parts or hand soap, it’s important to have a firm grasp of the underlying issues we can help tackle. It could be improved operational efficiency, talent shortage, faster turnaround time, space constraints or equipment capabilities. Whatever the problem, our goal is to help our business partners solve it to gain a competitive advantage. 

Take for example one key customer who is an admired leader and highly regarded for pioneering innovation in their industry. The assembly work we do for them could be done internally but it wouldn’t leverage their existing strengths. It would divert resources away from the exceptional capabilities that define their success.

Enter Goodwill Manufacturing.

They look to us an extension of their operation. We recently participated in a meeting with one of their largest customers to review progress on a ground breaking project. It was a productive discussion and their customer noted our collaboration opens the door to new opportunities. Across the board growth – that’s good news to hear!
