  • Step 1

    What are you looking for?

    • What is it you want to source or make?
    • Where will you sell these?
    • How many are you looking for?

    Whether you already know what you’re after or need help developing a concept, we’ll work with you to source and create whatever you need to bring your vision to life.

  • Step 2

    We’ll guide you through suppliers

    • What sort of quality assurance and pricing are you after?
    • How often will you buy these?
    • How soon do you need the items?

    Different markets call for different sourcing solutions and suppliers. A good product for the Brazilian market might not work so well in North America. We’ll find you your ideal China suppliers and manufacturing companies, and negotiate the best prices on your behalf.

    • Would you like your own branding on the products?
    • How about the packaging and design?
    • What about regional product certification requirements?

    If you like, our expert team can help you design and develop your own branding for your items. We can assist with die cuts, artworks, manuals, and more.

    We provide onsite quality checks

    • What are your acceptable standards of quality?
    • Do you need an in-line (during production) report?
    • We’ll also conduct a post-production quality inspection report

    Quality assurance is typically the biggest concern people have when sourcing or manufacturing in China. Our dedicated team of engineers and inspectors will ensure your desired quality is achieved through our comprehensive inspection process.

  • Step 6

    Shipment consolidation

    • Do you need all your items shipped together?
    • How about a less than container load (LCL) or full container load (FCL)?
    • Are drafting and consolidation needed for shipment documents?

    We’ll look at the most cost-effective ways to ship your products from the supplier to your end destination, handling all the required supporting documentation.
