Your parts bid was 2x higher than the competition.  Now what?

Our parts manufacturing customers often tell us horror stories about how they keep getting undercut by their competitors – sometimes as much as 2 to 3x.

Where here to tell you that not only are they doing it inexpensively, they are doing it quicker and still making a nice margin on the product.
