As it is known for some insulated stainless steel container manufacturers, business beginners may have trouble realizing the launch of their products due to an array of issues. Some may stew over the entire launching processes, while others are prone to give up even if they happen to get some nice ideas. As the best experienced vacuum sealed container supplier, KingStar has been offering assistance to our honored clients for decades, and now share with you knowledge about new vacuum insulated container development: from idea to product launch.
I. Generate Product Idea
The first step you gonna take is to have your idea. You can either generate it yourself or just innovate other’s. But one thing is for sure: this idea must be original and unique. A proper and strong idea helps you better win the competition. To facilitate the explanation, we hereafter take vacuum insulated stainless steel container(vacuum flask, insulated water bottle, thermos drink bottle, insulating cup, stainless steel tumbler mug, lunch box, vacuum sealed food container, beer growler, thermal jug, ice bucket, reusable metal drinkware, kitchen grade barware, double wall dog bowl, custom tool insulated medical grade vessel compartment for electronic parts placement etc) as an example.
There are so many thermos stainless steel containers in the market featuring different traits and function. Some containers are characterized by elegant appearance and some may be famous by the durability; some have incredible heat-retaining capability and some may have an edge on keeping contents cold.
So once you have got a matured idea, you are supposed to validate it through detailed market research, which minimizes the possibility of failure.
II. Conduct Market Research
You should never underestimate the importance of conducting market research. And here are the reasons. For one thing, you may have a good product behind that excellent idea, but do you ever compare it to its counterparts in the market? The fact is that your vacuum insulated metal container may fail to be competitive enough to stand out for lack of traits. When this happens, custom mold tooling enclosure is a perfect option for you to materialize your idea. For another, you should pay close heed to customers’ needs that in turn directly determine the launching scale. Once you have checked the above mentioned two takeaways, go and carry out step 3.
III. Work with Your Manufacturer
A reliable and capable manufacturer can materialize your idea in the time he or she is given. But, it’s not easy for many business beginners to establish long-term cooperation with manufacturers due to a variety of factors. For example, most thermos stainless steel container suppliers are not equipped with advanced manufacturing machines, let along have a complete production line. In most cases, they may choose to make a part of the product and contact other factories to do the rest. So if you work with such an inadequate vacuum insulated metal container provider, you are expected to confront with a number of potential issues such as delay of delivery, poor quality and unsatisfied after-sales services.
So how to find a trustworthy thermos stainless steel drinkware manufacturer? Well, there are three things that deserve your attention. First, the scale of production. In general, suppliers with a larger production scale are supposed to be qualified. When they receive your mass production order, they are capable of arranging the production and delivering them on time. Second, the experience of production. Those who have been dedicated to making vacuum sealed containers / bulk water bottles / bulk tumblers for decades are worthy of contacting. Third, the alternatives of custom options. A capable and reliable thermos stainless steel container maker is expected to provide you with a complete set of custom options including custom color, molding, packaging, and decoration etc.
Let’s suppose you have found such a good insulated stainless steel drinkware manufacturer, what should you do next? Well, scroll down and see step 4.
