OEM short for Original Equipment Manufacturer is used to refer to the company that acquires a product or component and reuses or incorporates it into a new product with its own brand name.
Let’s say that we want to launch a new barcode scanner that is bulletproof, waterproof, etc. For this we need to buy the original barcode scanner module from different manufacturers, Motorola, Famtech or others.
Now we have the barcode scanner module we need to create our own product image so we will use the bulletproof and waterproof features for advertisement. We came with a ingenious body design, that can fit in any hand, we attach the longest data cable existing on the market, etc.
Done, we have our product, we put a higher price than our competition and we make money! Buyers will think that because it’s expensive it has some tech improvements that others don’t and again we make money!
