Meanwhile, to save you time, definitions and classifications of OEM company and contract electronics solutions providers: CM, CEM, ECM, EMS, ODM, JDM – are below.

What’s an OEM company?

The original equipment manufacturer (OEM) is the brand owner, the company whose logo displays on the final product. Think: Apple, Sony, Ford, Cisco, Dell, Samsung, Lenovo, Microsoft … For example, Apple’s iPhone has the Apple logo clearly visible to users. Apple is the OEM. Apple designs its products, but Apple outsources the majority of iPhone manufacturing production to contract electronics solutions providers – both EMS and ODM. Apple does this to leverage cost-to-scale.

Read our article, ‘The differences between OEM companies and CM, CEM, EMS, ODM and JDM electronics providers‘ for more information. And if you are unable to find answers to your questions please contact us and we will respond to you promptly.

CMs and electronics design houses

Electronics solutions providers are called, although less often, CMs, or contract manufacturers. Their work in electronics is assumed but omitted. Contract electronics solutions providers focusing on R&D services, like embedded systems design, are called design houses. Electronics design is highly profitable and a highly competitive service offering because paces at which new product introductions (NPI) come to market become faster as companies try to increase value to maintain relevance and competitiveness.

Its common for any of the other types of contract electronics solutions business models (EMS, CEM, ECM, ODM, CM…) to include electronics design in their service offering, although doing so does require additional insurance, liability and certification requirements are met.

CM – contract manufacturer

Contract manufacturers (CM) will offer manufacturing services, and often some limited services related to manufacturing, to OEM customers. They’re called CM or contract manufacturer. These are both common terms in any manufacturing sector where production manufacturing is outsource and is used in the electronics industry, but also in other industries such as pharmaceuticals, construction, food and other consumer packaged goods, and so on.

CEM – contract electronics manufacturer

Unlike CM, contract electronics manufacturers (CEM) distinguish themselves from contract manufacturers that produce foods, paperback books, etc… due to the fact they serve the electronics industry. CEM is always interchangeable with CM, but CM is not always interchangeable with CEM.

ECM – electronics contract manufacturer

Electronics contract manufacturer (ECM) is just another acronym for CEM. ECM is always interchangeable with CM, but CM is not always interchangeable with ECM. Again, whether or not the contract manufacturer offers electronics solutions is the differentiator.

EMS – electronics manufacturing services

Electronics manufacturing services providers are also revered to an EMS providers, EMS manufacturing, EMS companies… The EMS provider business model has evolved over the years beyond offering just core manufacturing services.

ODM – original design manufacturer

Original design manufacturer (ODM). Until about 2005, this terms used to apply to companies in Taiwan, only. Now ODM providers and services can be found nearly everywhere EMS providers are located. ODM white label v ODM private label: ODM manufacturing can be broken down into white label and private label.

ODM white label is where the ODM designs, manufactures, distributes non-label, generic FGI products to various outlets or retailers. These retailers then sell the ODM product under their own logo or brand name. ODM private labeling is where the ODM sells FGI products produced exclusively for a particular retailer. Readers can purchase an itemized, audit checklist for evaluating technical and management capabilities of electronics CM, CEM, ECM, EMS providers here.
