What does a vertically integrated manufacturer mean? 


Vertical integration is a strategy some manufacturers use to manage all aspects of the product development-to-delivery process. It means the manufacturer can do the following processes from one source:

  • Design the product
  • Engineer the product
  • Test the product
  • Mass produce
  • Distribute the completed product

  • They also have the ability to scale production up or down as needed, which can help keep costs under control. 
  • Additionally, you can expect fewer logistical costs, such as shipping and handling, since everything is handled in-house.

With robust internal capabilities and processes, the quality of the products will be consistent across the board.
