I'm looking for a manufacturing company that can produce aprox 1,000 units of a 2 piece metallic pool cue holder. The device's pieces measure about 4"x3"1/2" and 4"x1 1/2"x1/2". Our original prototype was created using aluminum and we'd like to continue using it.
The one of the two pieces needs a threaded hole drilled in it so that we can add a screw/hook through it. Finally, the outer perimeter of one of the pieces needs to be surrounded with a thin rubber.
Ideally, I'm looking for a manufacturer that can provide a comprehensive solution for doing every element of production. It's not a deal breaker though.
As far as the manufacturing process goes, we've gotten quotes for die casting that were way above what we're willing to spend on a device with an unproven track record. I'm looking a solution that gives us a quality product with a minimal cost (isn't everybody?)
I have set up a special website for our prospective manufacturers so that they can see images of the device, read full specs, etc. Please email me directly at CarletonTorpin <AT> Gmail <DOT> com and I can send you the link. Obnoxious email formatting, I know but I work hard to keep my email spam free.
This is a product I want to start production on very shortly. Like all consumer goods, the Holiday season is an important time and this needs to be available by then.
