Many accessories, such as lenses and joysticks are OEM or relabels (like many others in the industry). But their core camera business I believe is what we should be referring to. Of course, some of the core components of the camera are not manufactured by Axis, rather OEM/ODM, similar to how apple approaches their markets. Axis does a good job of taking ownership and saying they are a true manufacturer, vs. using contract manufacturing.
Maybe that is a point for a new discussion: What security manufacturers have their own manufacturing facilities to make PCBs, assemble components, perform optical testing. This is as opposed to a contract facility that may make cameras one day for Brand A, and then Mobile phones for Brand B the next day. Is this a requirement to be a top tier manufacturer, or just the MO of the new world order? Are there advantages/disadvantages to a company having their own manufacturing facility in terms of product price, quality, speed to market, etc....???
