What is OEM/ODM

OEM stands for Original Equipment Manufacturer. In this case the manufacturer sells products based on the buyer’s specifications. We can say that they are not finished goods but rather components.

On the other hand, ODM (Original Design Products) are finalized products that are sold under the brand name of the purchasing company.
