Supplier Sourcing

Choosing the right manufacturing partners is critical to a project’s success. We assist clients to identify, assess and select suppliers, both locally and internationally.

Manufacturing Strategy Backed up by over 25 years manufacturing experience

The performance, quality, and reliability of a product depend not only on the design and engineering but the manufacturing processes, materials, and suppliers. Cobalt can assist clients with developing a manufacturing strategy that considers the high number of variables when choosing how, where and by who to manufacture a product. With over 25 years’ experience, Cobalt recognises that every client and every product is different, and a one size fits all approach never works. With a proven track record developing products across a range of industries and manufacturing processes, Cobalt will develop a dedicated approach to suit your project.

Local or Offshore Finding the best option for your product

Cobalt has an extensive network of trusted suppliers across a range of industries both locally in Australia and offshore including USA, UK, China, Taiwan, Singapore, Malaysia, and Vietnam. Whether it is a medical device requiring ISO 13485 certification or a high volume, cost sensitive product, Cobalt can assist in sourcing the right supplier to suit your product needs.
