Custom Toll Manufacturing in the lab
Custom Toll Manufacturing in production
What is custom toll manufacturing?

Custom Toll Manufacturing can be simply defined as an arrangement, where a company with specialised equipment processes raw materials or unfinished goods for a different company. If you haven’t heard of this before, you might have come across toll processing, which is the exact same thing, only a different name. 

How much does toll manufacturing cost?

Custom toll manufacturing is very cost-effective for customers. It allows them to keep the cost at just manufacturing, without having to factor in equipment costs, facility costs and employee salaries. The customer is equipped with everything it needs to manufacture, without having to pay anywhere near what they would if the equipment was theirs. Learn more.

Are there different type of custom toll manufacturing?

Yes, there are two types of manufacturing in chemicals, custom toll manufacturing and contract manufacturing. These two types of manufacture are similar in nature in how they live in the supply chain, even so, they can often be mistaken or confused for each other. Learn more.

Toll manufacturing

Whilst both of these types of manufacturing have similar characteristics, toll manufacturing has the main advantage in being able to provide customers with valuable ways to save both time and also money on a product line development and production of the product.

Contract manufacturing

In many ways, both toll and contract manufacturing are similar to streaming services such as Netflix, Spotify and Tidal. They allow Sierra Coating to provide laminating or coating services on demand and as needed, as part of a “sharing economy” model that is beneficial for both the customer and the manufacturer.
