Manufacturing-to-labour agreements must be tailored to the facts of each case. However, certain elements should be present in all cases. The list below also contains a few items that may be suitable for some, but not all, agreements. Labor-to-labor agreements are most often used when companies want to make substantial savings by externalizing. Countries like Brazil, Russia, India and China offer cheaper labor, while being technologically able to meet highly technical manufacturing requirements. Even in the United States, the protection of intellectual property is of the utmost importance. Without a wage manufacturing contract, you are at the mercy of the manufacturer. You have no assurance that the manufacturer will protect your intellectual property or trade secrets. Even if you trust your manufacturer, a deceptive employee can sell the information without agreement or use it for their own purposes. The agreement, which is advantageous for both parties, offers the customer inexpensive manufacturing services, while ensuring a long-term and revenue-generating contract for the toll service provider.
The agreement below describes an agreement between “Alex Pally” and the manufacturer “Ivan Martinez”. Alex Pally agrees to keep Ivan Martinez as a T-shirt manufacturer and agrees to a number of rules for their manufacture and delivery. As a wage manufacturer, Sierra Coating can provide its customers with a production facility and facilities for the processing of their raw or semi-produced materials. For this reason, the customer has only variable production costs without financial investments in equipment, facilities and personnel. With contract manufacturing, the customer is endowed with the necessary resources to develop their own special coatings or papers that Sierra Coating can use in the manufacturing process. Subsequently, the customer is able to develop exactly the product he imagines, without the time and capital necessary to build a manufacturing workshop. This significantly reduces the time it takes to bring the product to market, as the time it takes to order and install new machines is eliminated. Alternatively, your design can be improved. Without an agreement that preserves your intellectual property rights as enhanced, the manufacturer or an employee could take the improved design and create a better widget. Ultimately, this could result in the total loss of your business.
Contract manufacturing agreements protect business owners from losing their competitive advantage due to the secret nature of their idea or product. . . .
