An established UK company with worldwide sales, operating within the board game industry is looking for a manufacturer to mass produce an existing range of city-themed luxury chess sets. It is required that the manufacturer specialises in precision investment casting processes.The chess pieces are to be made of steel or aluminium. Other metals will be considered depending on the factories capabilities.
Each chess set consists of thirty-two chessmen (sixteen black and sixteen silver) and six individual pieces.
The black pieces need to be suitably finished/coated to ensure a contrasting surface when compared to the silver chess pieces. Each chess piece needs to have a machine cut felt base neatly applied to the bottom. The UK company will provide the necessary artwork and felt specification to assist achieving the desired results.
The manufacturing of the chess board is not part of this request. The UK company understands that the assembly of the products may need to be outsourced if this service is not provided within the factory.
The manufacturer will need to have the capacity to scale up the production of the chess pieces depending on order quantities. The order volumes ideally could be several hundreds or thousands of sets depending on demand.
The orders will need to be shipped in high load bearing (HLB) packaging foam within a brown outer carton to the UK.
