What is an metal hardware accessories OEM?

OEM means Original Equipment Manufacturer, while ODM means Original Design Manufacturer.

What an OEM does is create a customer’s product fully designed by that customer. Foxconn is the most popular example of an OEM. The company builds the iPhones designed by Apple. The design is exclusive to Apple alone, and Foxconn is the licensed manufacturer.

How does OEM working?

Here’s the process of how OEM works to give you a clearer idea:

1.The order products from Customer

The process starts when the client orders a specific metal hardware accessories product. It could be snap hook, ring buckle, belt buckle, D ring, Chains, Handbag clasp and more. These stainless steel accessories products which will carry the client’s luxury brand bag and shoes. Including the logos and other special features exclusive to the client.

2.The OEM creates the product.

The OEM builds the specific amount of products the client has ordered.

3.The OEM delivers the product.

After completing the order, the OEM delivers the private label products, and the client pays the provider.

What is an ODM?

An ODM, on the other hand, already has hundreds of original products in its inventory. That’s why an ODM is often called a “private labeling” company where they do everything for you. All you have to do is choose an existing product design, make a few adjustments, and put your logo on it. Luxury fashion brand often base on their bag design and choose what kinds of metal hardware components to match the bag.

As you know, all luxury brand company which own their design and metal hardware development team. They get infomation and data from their company and then go to find the supplier, share their idea for the metal hardware accessories and then factory base on their mind to produce their order.
