Sorry, this partnering opportunity is closed.
The German company has been active in online trade with accessories for notebooks for two years and is looking for a professional hardcase manufacturer. Preferably the partner should be experienced in hardcase production from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastics or aluminium alloys. The first hardcase sizes with 35cm x 25cm x 3cm shall be produced under a manufacturing agreement. The management is looking for manufacturers in Eastern Europe, the Balkans or Asia.
The German start-up was founded 2019 and has specialised in online trade with accessories for computers and mobile communication devices, especially cases for notebooks. The company is looking for manufacturers of hardcases made from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastics or aluminium alloys.
The hardcase should have a slim, smart and clean minimalistic look. The product which is currently under development will combine outdoor hardcase characteristics with a compact and clean looking design. The outdoor specifications include toughness as well as shock and water resistance - if possible in connection with a waterproof seal.
With regard to the stage of development, the start-up is currently finalizing the prototype. To this end, the team is working on including further parts into their prototype. Their challenge is that special parts such as locks and hinges have to be attached or integrated into to the hardcase top and bottom case parts.
Concerning the manufacturing agreement envisaged, the management is interested in different pricing options for the moulds which have to be designed for producing their hardcase with aluminium or acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) materials. A specific mould will be needed in order to produce their customized products according to the existing design specifications. Therefore, the company would like to evaluate in a first step which material would be the most cost-efficient way to produce their hardcases. This can be either aluminium or ABS. The company would like to choose the most cost-efficient approach, while keeping their design standards as well as technical characteristics of the hardcase high.
For a successful cooperation, the start-up is looking for a business partner who can work according to their design specifications. The partner should be willing to finalize the prototype together with the German company. The manufacturer should be able to include the special parts such as hinge (preferably torque hinges) and lock types. A waterproof seal is preferable but not a must. These and more characteristics can be discussed in order to finalize the prototype together and later on create a mould for the production of a series.
The company is looking for reliable partners. A long-term cooperation is envisaged. They aim to grow the business together by producing and reinvesting in new products of the same category and more.
The company is additionally looking for manufacturers of foaming/padding later on, as they need to fill their hardcases with a matching foam or padding. This can be either the same or another business partner.
For further information please take a look at their business request for padding/foaming manufacturers under the profile reference: BRDE20210917001
Their mission is to produce reliable and trustworthy protective equipment, combined with unique style and designs under their own registered trademark or brand. Their goal is to distribute their products internationally through business-to-consumer and business-to-business companies and partners.
The material of the product can be from acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) or aluminium. In a first step sizes from approximately 35cm x 25cm x 3cm (slim/smart) are needed under a manufacturing agreement.
Please note that the start-up is not looking for a standard product out of racks or an existing portfolio. Instead, they are looking for a manufacturer who has the expertise and know-how to create customized hardcases according to their own size and design specifications.
Therefore, Original Equipment Manufacturing as well as a new mould for their newly developed product will be needed.
The German start-up is searching for a manufacturer of hardcases. The management is looking for a partner who has understanding for their current business status with a prototype in revision. Ideally, the partner would be in the position to advise the start-up on what kind of parts could be attached, while maintaining their design characteristics as well as keeping technical parameters of the product for its daily usage. This means particularly to sustain the product toughness and stability.
In a next step, hinge and lock and some other special parts have to be discussed and integrated later on. The goal is to finalize a hardcase which suits design and technical requirements.
The company is looking for a partner with a high degree of flexibility regarding the production of new products and product development.
The manufacturer should possess know-how to not only produce the hardcases, but also the respective moulds needed.
The business partner shall be solid, trustworthy and shall have been active at the market for a few years. Furthermore, they aim at a higher minimum order quantity for the partner, once the business is on the market. The company is open to a detailed discussion of their project.
They are looking for manufacturers in Eastern Europe, the Balkans or Asia.
Currently the company has no certification yet. Nonetheless, the products will need certification as well as standards. This is a necessary precondition in order to be shipped and sold internationally, such as in Germany, Europe or USA.
