Contract Manufacturing


Red Clay has a particular interest in investing in contract manufacturing businesses. As brand owners are increasingly rewarded in the market by consumer adoption of their product or service, they are increasingly relying upon third-party partners to manufacture their products. Contract manufacturers are a vital link in the supply chain, enabling these brand owners to efficiently deliver for their customers.

Additionally, the shortening of product life cycles and the pace of new product introductions is fueling the growth of the contract manufacturing industry. Sector expansion is expected to be between 5% and 15% annually through 2015 in several sectors of the co-packing/repacking industry including:

  • Food
  • Beverage
  • Health and Beauty
  • Consumer Products
  • Electronics
