Contracting Sub-assemblies From Suppliers

Hello fellow Covers,

I?m probably over thinking this but it?s best to ask an expert when one lacks experience. We are considering outsourcing some low risk subassemblies of our device to one of our suppliers. They presently make a wheel for us out of nylon round stock. We would like them to add a bearing and axle to the wheel and send them to us already assembled. Our factory presently completes this assembly, which uses standard, off the shelf parts. Once we have the assemblies from the supplier, we would use them as we continue to build the final product. So far it seems quite simple to me, but here is where I need some help. These assemblies could be sold to our customers as replacement parts, as they do wear out over time. Do we need to add the supplier as one of our sites for manufacturing if we sell them as is, with no additional work at our factory? I?ll also add that the parts would be sent to someone who we certified to install them.

Those wheels are not Medical Devices. Treat them with that notion in mind.
