FAQ

Why did you choose China instead of Mexico or Vietnam for your primary manufacturing location?

When looking at manufacturing wire harness and cable assemblies in low cost regions, Ever First wanted to insure they were able to meet the following objectives – the capability to have a location that would offer the ability to be wholly owned, produce world class quality, employ a high level, reliable workforce and have the necessary infrastructure for shipping worldwide.  China was selected as she provides an excellent location which meets all of these key objectives.

With manufacturing in China, are your lead-times long?

While purchasing directly from component manufacturers, one can result in best costing, it also can carry with it very long component leadtime. Ever First has been able to offset this in two key ways. First FPA samples and startup production, are shipping to North America via consolidated air freight. While this carries a higher cost, the timeline can be greatly reduced. Once the initial pipeline is filled, Ever First works closely with their customers in a partnership with a stocking program to hold inventory in China so that the agreed to buffer inventory can be shipped within same day.

Do you have a robust Quality Control program?

Yes! Ever First maintains ISO9001, TS16949 and ISO14001 certifications. You can see some of the extensive processes followed by Ever First by visiting our web page on quality. Quality Control is one of the cornerstones of the Ever First business philosophy which has enabled us to become a world class leader in wire harness quality performance.

Do you permit site audits at your primary make site in China?

Ever First welcomes and encourages both our current and future partners to visit our wholly owned location in China. We are very proud of our plant, people and processes and look forward to your visit. Please contact your sales representative or contact us via the contact form to arrange a visit.

Does Ever First only build high volume assemblies?

Low volume production always means MOQ (minimum order quantity) costs. Ever First however tries to use commonality in similar harness assemblies and combines them in order to minimize the MOQ cost impact. You will be pleasantly surprised with how Ever First can support your wire harness and cable assembly needs in case of low volume. You can request a quote on our contact page.

Do you have the ability to ship directly from your plant in China?

Yes, many of our customers have us ship ExWorks from our China location. We also have some customers that have us ship to their plants in Asia from China and to their plants in North America – overall we can be globally local to best support your needs.

Does Ever First have the capacity to support growth?

Ever First has planned the necessary infrastructure to facilitate their forecasted growth and effectivly support you and your business.

Does Ever First support Insulation Displacement (IDC) technology?

Yes, in fact, Ever First has recently expanded their IDC manufacturing lines to improve automation with a combination of both Stocko and Komax into a single piece of equipment. While many IDC manufactures are supported by Ever First, Stocko is a primary partner as they are a company that has a focus on the complete connection system (including the circuit board, wire and the use of redundant connection points). Like Ever First, they have a shared goal of providing customers with a high quality/ reliable electrical connection. IDC has been used in the European automotive industry for many years and more recently has been expanding into the US market.

What about the ability for Ever First to do molding?

Ever First has the ability for both over molding and injection molding as a part of a wire harness assembly. While this is not a focus on providing molded components, the value of being able to integrate molding into a wire harness brings significant value to customers.

Whom do I contact to request a quote?

You can easily contact us using our contact form. Using this form will also allow you to upload up to 2MB of drawings. Ever First strives to respond to all requests within one business day.

How long does it take to get a quote returned?

Usally we can response within one or two weeks. However for more complex and/or specialized custom assemblies, we may have to get quotation from our component and/or tooling suppliers in order to complete our quotes. Often times this means negotiation in both price and leadtime in order to better serve our customers’ need. We will try to achieve the most competitive cost. In those instances we can try to provide our customers an indication of the timing when you contact us for a quote.
