BROOKLYN, N.Y., Aug. 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- It used to be that designers would spend countless months searching for factories to produce their ideas. Today, Maker's Row is turning the tables, allowing factories to find the entrepreneurs. Maker's Row has been championing American manufacturing by creating a platform where brands looking to manufacture their products can connect and interact with American factories. Since launching in 2012 Maker's Row has helped over 100,000 brands make more than 2 million products by working with the growing community of 10,000 factories on the platform.
Now, Maker's Row is making it even easier to produce in the United States by giving brands the ability to request estimates, transact, and, with the new project dashboard, have factories bid on their projects.
Factories can browse through hundreds of projects that are posted every day and select which leads they'd like to pursue. Not only does this give power to factories to choose their work, it also gives brands a chance to be exposed to thousands of factories that are willing to help them manufacture their products in the United States.
"We want to empower designers and makers," said Maker's Row co-founder and CMO Tanya Menendez. "We hope that all these new features make it easier for entrepreneurs to start and scale their businesses."
Co-founder and CEO Matthew Burnett said, "Manufacturing is an insider industry. The best way to hear about a factory was word of mouth. The easiest way to pay a factory was through check. We are changing the way the manufacturing industry works."
These new features represent the future of American manufacturing. Maker's Row strives to make it easier to make in the United States. Now, entrepreneurs have a way. This is what modern manufacturing looks like.
