Now let’s dive deep into understanding the company while in interview with Jordan Erskine, Co-Founder/President and Gavin V. Collier, J.D., Co-Founder/ CEO.
Does your firm see innovation as a single time process or a continuous one?
Dynamic Blending is constantly innovating and developing new ways to shake up the stale contract manufacturing industry. Dynamic Blending has won 8 awards for being innovative and changing how the client collaborates with their manufacturer. Dynamic Blending understands innovation is key to surviving any company let alone an industry where the main players have been around for 20 years. Innovation must be a driving factor for organizations who expect to see continual growth. We all know what happens to companies who don’t innovate, i.e. Compaq, Blockbuster, Circuit City.
How much do you value the workplace innovation?
Dynamic Blending encourages workplace innovation, no, requires it! Once a month Dynamic Blending’s sales and marketing team, as well as the executive staff, discusses new innovative ideas to bring more value to our clients. Because of this internal process we have been able to differentiate Dynamic Blending from the rest of the manufacturers in the industry. The industry knows Dynamic Blending as the company who can do it all!
What is your company’s recent innovation?
Dynamic Blending recently created a program for its clients named Project Ignite. Project Ignite is a tool to help clients get their company and product to market the right way. There are different options for clients to choose from including: graphic design & branding help, website development, joint venture opportunities, fulfillment & drop shipping services and much more. The program sees a great deal of success because most clients need help with these areas.
What problems in the industry you could turn into an opportunity?
A big problem in the industry is there are no true turnkey manufacturers out there. Dynamic Blending is changing that. Before the typical process would be that the client already has their branding, formulas, etc to get a product to market. Then the only service a contract manufacturer would perform would be manufacturing and producing the product. Dynamic Blending can now help create the company, the idea, the product and dropship to their clients. This is the first of its kin manufacturer. This also conveys to the client that Dynamic Blending is not just another contract manufacturer. But a partner who wants their business to succeed and is going to give them all the tools to do so.
How appealing is your company in the current market?
As mentioned above, Dynamic Blending has created the first ever complete turnkey solution for its clients. This eliminates all supply chain issues when everything can be handled by one company under one roof. Therefore, companies want Dynamic Blending to be their exclusive manufacturing partner. This way if there is an issue they don’t have to call 10 different companies who each have inputs to their product. They can have one single point of contact at Dynamic Blending for their entire product line.
List your enterprise’s unique products and services in brief.
Dynamic Blending is unique due to the extremely small minimum order quantities (MOQs) that are required to begin. Most contract manufacturers require high MOQs upwards of 50,000 units to get started. Dynamic Blending starts at 1000 units. This allows companies to utilize their starting capital in other areas of their business, like marketing and advertising. Dynamic Blending is also unique in that it gives their clients the formulas once they are created. For example, most contract manufacturers hold their clients formulas hostage and require they hit a certain unit volume before they release it. At Dynamic Blending, the client owns the formulation that was created for them. Apart from this, our turnkey process and Project Ignite is something that is not being done in the market. The fact that someone that had no idea what they were doing can get a full company created, branded, products produced and drop shipped out of one facility is a unicorn in the contract manufacturing space.
What are your future ventures if you could share some?
Dynamic Blending’s future ventures include a new website with the first ever client project portal. This will include an interactive real time status on projects, manufacturing timelines and ETAs, as well as other important documents. This will help our clients stay organized with the documentation required to complete projects.
