The Benefits of Outsourcing Metal Presswork and Stamping

If your manufacturing products are made with metal stamping, you often face the question of whether it is better to outsource your manufacturing needs in order to stay competitive. 


So, if you are tasked to determine if outsourcing is financially feasible for the company, then you should be looking at the bigger picture. By entrusting metal pressing to specialist manufacturers, you unlock a range of benefits that contribute to the overall success of your business. Read on to understand the advantages of outsourcing your metal stamping needs.

Achieving cost-effectiveness

Metal presswork uses expensive, computer-controlled equipment to create metal cases, shields, and power tool parts. Investing in the necessary equipment, machinery, and skilled labour required for in-house presswork can be a substantial financial burden.

By outsourcing, you eliminate these capital expenses, as the presswork provider bears the costs associated with equipment maintenance, upgrades, and skilled labour.

Additionally, outsourcing metal stamping allows you to leverage economies of scale, as metal presswork and stamping companies often have established relationships with suppliers, enabling them to source materials at lower costs.

Sustainability and localisation

Outsourcing is not only environmentally friendly but can also bring cost-effectiveness and efficiency to your business. Choosing to collaborate with local manufacturers who prioritise sustainability allows you to align your goals with theirs.


By partnering with a manufacturer committed to sustainability, you gain access to their extensive knowledge and experience in the field. This ensures that your business remains in line with its sustainability objectives while benefiting from its specialist expertise. 


Moreover, these manufacturers have the advantage of sourcing materials locally. This not only guarantees the quality of materials but also contributes to the growth of the local economy. Engaging with such stamping companies not only lowers production costs but also supports the development of the UK's local economy. In addition, utilising sustainable materials helps modular building manufacturers meet environmental regulations and appeal to environmentally conscious consumers.


At Birmingham Specialities, our sustainability manager Caroline, ensures the supply of quality materials, products and services are sustainably sourced, championing the company’s sustainability goals. As a member of the Indutrade group, we work towards the overall goals of driving sustainable, profitable growth, so you can be sure that you are partnering with a truly sustainable manufacturer.

Mitigating risk and ensuring quality

Manufacturers employ skilled technicians who are well-versed in the latest industry techniques and technologies. By partnering with such experts, you can be confident in the quality of the stamped products, ensuring they meet or exceed your specifications and industry standards.


Manufacturers are also well-versed in industry regulations and standards, ensuring compliance with safety protocols and quality control measures. By outsourcing, you can mitigate risks associated with non-compliance or inconsistent product quality. Reputable companies often have robust quality control systems in place, including rigorous inspection procedures and testing protocols, to deliver products of the highest quality. This attention to quality can enhance your brand reputation and customer satisfaction.

Focusing on core competencies

Outsourcing non-core activities like metal stamping enables your company to focus on its core competencies and strategic objectives. Instead of allocating resources and manpower to manage metal stamping processes internally, you can redirect those resources to areas that directly impact your competitive advantage. 


This enhanced focus can lead to improved product development, innovation, customer service, and market positioning, ultimately driving business growth and profitability.
