Companies that use MfgQuote?s website to source manufacturing services are asked to complete a 3-minute survey, then the data is compiled, analyzed, and released on a monthly basis free of charge to its participants in MfgQuote?s Manufacturing Outlook Report, including OEMs, molders, and contract manufacturers.

A recent report that?s indicative of the topics covered says that from June to July participants anticipated spending 8% more on sourced services.

Of those surveyed, 50% said quality was the determining factor in rewarding contracts, while 45% said price; 90% said location didn?t matter.
