Thinking about buying from China, but not sure where to start?

Need support to make the right decisions for your long term future?

Want to know exactly who you are working with, and have full access to the factories?

 

Outsourcing Questions

We understand that outsourcing raises many questions and challenges, and there are many different approaches and outcomes to looking at this in China. Our services are designed around the customer’s needs, and provide Directors with clear information as to whether this is the right or wrong direction.

Our approach is to gain a full understanding of your ‘wish list’ and then conduct market research from our office in Shanghai to try and find your ideal business parter – not a business partner. China has a vast number of manufacturing options, and the challenge is in finding a relationship that can develop over the years and provide the long term supply side stability to grow your business.

 

We offer our customers:

Customer Assessment

To establish exactly what you are after.

 

Market Research

To provide directors with a clear understanding of supply options.

 

Commitment Free

Only proceed if you are happy with the options provided

 

Supply Chain Transparency

A clear understanding of the companies you are buying from

 

Management Support

Full long term support from an experienced Chinese/UK team

Help! It’s all going wrong.

Do you feel as if you have no idea what’s going on and your business is suffering?

Are you finding that communication from your suppliers are poor and you can’t get any response?

There are many different ways to gain access to manufacturers in China, but understanding which company you are dealing with is not as straight forward as it seems. Many companies claiming to be manufacturers are not, and without clear knowledge of who you are dealing with – the problems can happen very quickly.

The problems can start to compound themselves after investment has been made in production assets such as tooling and gauging – do you own them, does the factory or is there a third party involved you are unaware of?

Dealing direct comes with the ‘carrot’ of better prices, but do you have the knowledge, experience and resource to make a relationship work?

Whilst we cannot make any claims to be able to resolve the problems that you have, we are happy to devote some time to trying to understand the root cause of the problem and provide you with an overview of it, as well as providing you with a proposal on how our approach might resolve the issues for you.

We understand that time (and money) will be involved, and manufacturing solutions will take time to implement – it costs nothing to talk, so why not start by calling us on 01225 460 388 or contact us at help@onepointtwo.com
