What Our Customers Are Saying
  • They do their due diligence and homework up front. They provide excellent engineering resources and support that many companies do not provide.
  • “All the components were placed properly, fully tested by EDM. It’s one of the items we don’t really have to think about too much."
  • They poured everything they had into it and delivered us product way short of the required lead time.
  • If EDM says a product will be here on a certain day, it will be here on that day or earlier. Never later.
  • I love that they can give me an up-to-date and accurate print out and review of all of our open orders.
  • They are methodical with knowing what they’re getting into and when they go into production they make sure it’s set up right.
  • It’s one of the vendors I don’t have issues working with.
  • They have the ability to produce test fixtures, so we don’t have to develop that for ourselves. Our other suppliers need us to do that for them which adds more time and cost to me.
  • They’re low impact on my team. I don’t need to spend a lot of time supporting the manufacturing.
  • We appreciate EDM’s honesty upfront that tells us that yes or no we can make this happen.
  • They’re good with sourcing hard to find items that we have struggled with in the past.
  • It’s like working with someone in our own company.
