OCP is run by a non-profit foundation. There certainly are providers who supply the OCP designs as for-profit products, but you can be sure that anyone who is deploying OCP hardware at scale, is using contract manufacturing.

You'd only go to HP to buy OCP hardware if you are doing it because your CTO/CIO thinks it's cool.

At the kind of scale we're talking about for Amiga hardware, anyone trying to make a little money from hardware, would be foolish to open source their designs. However, it's also more likely that you have people doing hardware for fun, who aren't motivated by profit and are prepared to open everything (e.g. mntmn)
