Prototyping and manufacturing partner sought to produce hot beverage containers under a joint venture agreement
A UK and France based product designer is seeking a strategic partnership with a manufacturer to prototype and produce its new range of carafes and containers for coffee and other hot drinks. A joint venture or a manufacturing agreement is sought.
The UK company is a product development lab based in England and France.
They develop new disruptive ideas in the retail sector for global marketing and manufacture. They collaborate with product designers, inventors and engineers to iterate and occasionally prototype their concepts.
Because prototyping and manufacture is expensive and often cost prohibitive, the UK company is a seeking a strategic partnership (ideally a joint venture) with a manufacturer who would have free capacity to prototype and manufacture these innovative products.
The UK company has recently innovated a series of carafes, containers and reusable cups. The designs utilise a toughened scratch resistant plastic outer shell and an inner glass bowl with a mirrored coating to trap heat. They are seeking manufacturers/experts with the capacity to mold plastics into a variety of formats and components also to manufacture glass containers with a specific mirrored coating.
The preferred arrangement would be that the UK company would supply the IP and concept development and the partner would provide logistical facility by supporting the manufacture of the prototypes (either for free or at exceptionally low cost). Once the product is tested and on the market, the partner will be responsible to provide the full manufacturing service for potential orders.
Ideally a joint venture is sought for a long term partnership but the UK company will also consider more 'ad-hoc' manufacturing arrangement if the partner is willing to produce the prototype and small quantity orders.
