According to the Private Label Manufacturers Association, one out of every four products sold in the United States is private label or store brand. For many consumers, store brands have become an essential ally in providing their families with high-quality, everyday products at an excellent value. They give the chains a way to set themselves apart from the competition and enable them to offer their customers more choice.
By not selling branded items, private labelers have control of the look and branding of their products. Private label companies like Safetec handle the research, product development, and manufacturing processes, so brands don't have to, allowing brands quality control, low startup costs, and higher profit margins.
What to Look for in a Manufacturer
Deciding what manufacturer to go with boils down to what products you intend to sell. When making this decision, there are various manufacturing logistics to consider. For example, you'll have to determine which manufacturer can provide:
- The goods needed to produce the product
- Highest product quality
- The capabilities you require to bring your product idea to life
There is a common myth that every brand has its army of formulators and scientists working away in some high-tech lab creating its products. The reality is that many of those products are researched, developed, and packaged by private label companies. As a private label manufacturer for over 20 years, Safetec of America, Inc. offers a tiered approach to private label capabilities.
