MFG is a platform that makes it easy for buyers of custom parts and custom parts manufacturers to easily find and work with each other.
Our manufacturer directory and request for quote (RFQ) process provides significant value to our buyers by eliminating the time-consuming process of vetting manufacturers and delivering competitive quotes for their custom part request. These tools also maximize value for manufacturers by allowing them to efficiently and economically find new customers.
MFG has four key components that assist buyers and manufacturers in finding and working with each other efficiently:
The Manufacturer Directory is a listing of global manufacturers. Buyers can search and browse profiles, then reach out to those they believe best fit their needs. Manufacturers can be discovered based on capabilities, certifications, and location. Create a free directory profile or start browsing to find a manufacturer match!
If you are looking to get a custom part manufactured, submitting a Request for Quote is the best way to get information from manufacturers. Once a buyer submits the details of their project, they will receive quotes from manufacturers around the world, or within the geography they specify.
In fact, our buyers receive an average of four quotes from US manufacturers alone! With a Premium membership, manufacturers are able to respond to RFQs and deliver their quote for the work.
Once a buyer chooses a manufacturer, this feature allows transacting directly on the platform. Communicate with your contacts, create or upload a purchase order, view part tracking throughout the manufacturing process, and more with MFG!
The MFG Community is our social platform where you can engage directly with thousands of other MFG users, as well as reach out to MFG employees on manufacturing topics. Post in forums, sell on classifieds, post jobs, and more!
