"First off, I would like to say that it is a pleasure to work with you and Bill of the Titoma organization. You are prime examples of what it takes to make a company a world class end to end manufacturing organization that meets or exceeds needs of its customers. Hats off to you and your owners!"
- Russell Huffman, New Tech Alarms
"I am honored to testify as a satisfied customer. I'm very happy with the work you did during the manufacturing phase, and especially grateful for the attention you gave me during the whole process."
- Edgar Orozco, AVICORVI SA
"We decided to work with Titoma because of their reputation and competitive price. We saved up to 100% higher on NRE (Non Recurring Expenses, i.e. design and molds) and 50% on parts. They delivered full turnkey development with impressive professionalism and quality. We have further products lined up for the coming year, and we will look forward to working with Titoma again."
- Michael Jones, Nigami Enterprises
"I recommend Titoma as an excellent partner for die-casted and injection molded parts. During the whole process we had very fast communication, and Titoma offered many useful suggestions on how to improve our mechanical design to avoid problems. The resulting parts were beautiful with a nice finish, and they managed to achieve the tight tolerances we required."
- Jacek Rydzewski, Grupa Techniczna
"We used to buy our custom made keyboards directly from a factory in Taiwan. Unfortunately, working with them turned out to be a major headache--endless shipping delays, which cost us a lot of customers. Two years ago, we asked Titoma to select and manage a new factory. Having a team on the ground that really understands quality and is able to make decisions on the spot saved us a lot of time and hassle."

Outsourcing Medical Parts and Devices to China: Design, Development, and Manufacturing for the the Medical Industry
As competition in the global medical device market intensifies, we see international medical companies increasingly seeking ways to reduce costs in R&D and manufacturing. Many Asian countries, especially China, offer the combination of low cost manufacturing and a skilled labor force. It doesn’t come as a surprise that major medical companies are moving manufacturing to China.
Is Outsourcing for You?
Healthcare companies can grow by outsourcing their manufacturing projects. Obviously, huge price savings are available in China compared with other manufacturing locations. Projects that make good outsourcing candidates include injection molding—expect to save 40%—assembly, packaging, and testing. If you have worries on IP protection, please read our page on IP protection and our non-disclosure agreement.
Still, it is not easy to choose the right partners that will comply with strict quality standards. Besides preserving quality, another consideration is to be reasonable about pricing. But if a foreign company outsourcing to China demands prices that are too low, it can tempt Chinese suppliers to neglect quality control or to use inferior materials.
How We Make It Work
The alternative option is to work with a partner such as the Titoma Group instead of working directly with the supplying factories. We are already on location, and with our expertise we can tap our resources quickly to find the manufacturers with the exact qualifications you need. We speak your language and understand Western quality standards and can implement them effectively.
The Titoma Group takes responsibility for your entire project, giving you the made-in-China low cost advantage over your competition without headaches and delays, sparing you the bureaucratic rigmaroles of locating the right companies and getting them approved as vendors.
In addition, we warrant quality by working with Western designers, engineers, and project managers that have many years of experience working in Asia and in close cooperation with local engineers and manufacturers highly specialized in medical manufacturing.
The Titoma Group of Partners designs, develops, and manufactures Class I and II medical devices. Titoma ensures that partners and suppliers are FDA registered and ISO 13485 and ISO 9001 certified and that their regulatory documents, as well as product registration, factory registration, methods (e.g. clean-room manufacturing) are properly authorized and up to date. Coupled with industry leading manufacturing innovation and a dedication to the rigorous disciplines of quality assurance, we have what it takes to be your full service contract manufacturing partner. Our capabilities include:
• Product design and development
• Full-service engineering consultation and support
• Materials management and control
• Vendor selection and qualification
• 3D solids modeling of multi-component assemblies
• Mold design and construction
• Clean-room molding

Whether or not to outsource and how to do it is not a black-and-white decision. Your development team may be well-versed in medical and legal requirements, but you need someone who knows how to get things done in China who ensure a customized and personal approach. We look forward to that partnership.
