a manufacturer that designs and manufactures products as ordered and specified by another company and then rebrands the product for the ordering company.
An original design manufacturer (ODM) is a company that designs and produces products which are sold and marketed under the name of the original equipment manufacturer (OEM). To put it differently, an ODM provides”ready-to-go” products for the OEM. The latter buys products in the prior that determines what style and products are going to be built. The ODM mostly owns the right to the intellectual property that enters the merchandise. Such firms allow the company that owns or licenses the manufacturer to produce products without needing to engage in the organization or running of a factory.
