Once we understand your business and manufacturing requirements – what happens next?
We’ll review the results from the initial research undertaken, to evaluate and refine your options for partnering with Chinese suppliers.
This process will likely involve travel to China
- Our experienced team would first undertake any provisional audits required, from our Shanghai office, to ensure a more efficient research trip.
- We’ll then provide full support throughout your visit, to review supplier options first hand.
- We’ll work together, to determine whether or not the shortlist of suppliers provides your business with the right fit – using our local knowledge to further inform that decision.
- This process provides our customers with full transparency on their potential supplier partners.
Assuming the identification of a future supplier from this visit, we will then support the process of drawing up general contracts and T&Cs, prior to formal discussion.
China offers a wealth of suppliers, making it all too easy to find several great factories which on paper, could fulfil your requirements. However, the trick to identifying the right match lies in understanding their working compatibility and matching this with your ongoing requirements.
We work closely with UK business customers to locate appropriate suppliers and evaluate options.
Identifying a manufacturing partner and visiting suppliers in China takes time
Some of our clients nominate us to act on their behalf during this critical stage; others prefer to be supported, using our experience to facilitate their visit – and our guidance to identify, evaluate and form the most appropriate Chinese supplier partnership.
Working with our well connected and knowledgable team, our customers enjoy significant competitor advantage, thanks to our insight and market connections in China.
