My company has recently launched our own line of furniture and we are in the process of moving from all in-house manufacturing to outsourcing. Our process is much in the same spirit (but definitely not design) as context furniture.
We have been looking for contract CNC people for a while now and have been very frustrated by extremely varied pricing and quality. It seems like everyone is either some old retiree in a workshop, or a huge outfit with no time for low volume production that we need.
Can anyone help us with some options for CNC guys who are quality and won’t kill us on the price (it seems like on average, $50-125 per sheet is the reasonable range we have been getting so far) and if possible, people who would also be interested in either rough assembly or in full-process assembly and finishing?
We are located in Raleigh, NC so anywhere in the mid-atlantic would be really good options for us.
Have you ever thought about out-sourcing those CNC parts in China? I think this will reduce quite a lot of your costs for sure! If you are interested in this, you may send me a private message. We would be pleased to do those small volume CNC parts for you at my CNC workshop of my factory.
