Global Build-to-Print Services
Our People. Our Process. Your Design.
Bring Your Designs to Life
We are experts in precision assembly, automation, and inspection technologies that help companies reduce scrap ratios, perform high-quality inspections of complex geometries, and automate the precision assembly of complex products. By leveraging our vast experience in advanced manufacturing and automation across industry verticals, our build-to-print services specialize in low-volume/high-mix (LVHM) for complex platforms, delivering end-to-end support including design, DFX, supply chain management, manufacturing, fulfillment, logistics, field services, and more.
Our BTP service offering makes manufacturing partnerships available to clients with a viable engineering design, but without the manufacturing infrastructure or capacity to bring that design to life. Our partners benefit from world-class production and manufacturing engineering teams that can provide expertise in reviewing BoMs and drawings, recommend alternate sources of component supply, and suggest design improvements to improve manufacturability.

The infographic shows how the DWFritz Build-to-Print team analyzed and optimized client drawings and documentation to construct an accurate bill-of-materials during the quoting process for an advanced manufacturing client.
The client delivered a document package containing 731 complex engineering drawings, but without an electronic Bill of Materials or overall structure. Our team’s goal was to provide a quote for the project in four weeks.
Our production, engineering, and supply chain teams quickly analyzed and organized the documents into mechanical, electrical, and pneumatic assemblies, and then by subassembly. Digital BOMs were manually constructed and then combined them into a flat BOM for the supply chain team. The cost input was ported into the subassemblies to generate a customer cost breakdown. Technicians and manufacturing engineers reviewed the drawings to provide build time estimates, note issues or obsolete parts, and highlight areas of improvement.
DWFritz provided a detailed proposal package to the customer, including price break information from our supplies to show how volume pricing could lower their overall unit cost – all within the full quote time.
