Job Shop Manufacturing

The classic Job Shop is a small manufacturing company with a collection of equipment that they “outsource” to their customers. Job Shop manufacturers are usually sub contractors to larger producers, who bid on quotes for jobs they may only build once and never again. They almost always buy materials to the job, and are focused on employee costs and managing their quotations and estimates.
