A methodical approach to identifying, verifying and qualifying potential new suppliers means finding best in class options in a fraction of the time and risk of going it alone.
We manage complex offshore manufacturing assignments, assist in product design improvements, negotiate costs and coordinate shipping and logistics.

New Product Introductions
A methodical approach to identifying, verifying and qualifying potential new suppliers based on 20+ years of experience of understanding China’s manufacturing clusters by industry and applying our Sourcing Funnel (link) to find best in class fit based on clients’ certifications, materials, and quality standards.
Many clients have invested a few years of working with a specific factory or supplier yet not achieving desired results. Whether ongoing quality concerns, continued missed deadlines, lack of urgency and overall communication challenges, we can generally get to root cause issues and implement CPIs for immediate results.
Supplier Due Diligence
Whether a new or existing factory there is no substitute for on-site audits to confirm experience, assets (plant, property & equipment), staffing and a commitment by ownership and management to meet client needs.
Clients have invested time, capital and learning curve to developing a factory and often time it makes most sense to continue working with a supplier who seems to be committed yet falling short of expectations. Our team brings three decades of manufacturing and process expertise to the table. By quantifying to factory owners how they can become more profitable and even grow their business we gain the trust of owners and managers in a non-threatening approach that becomes a win-win.
Quality Audit & Pre-Shipment Inspection
“You can’t inspect quality into finished goods” is part of our vernacular. By establishing a Quality Assurance (QA) program on the front end, suppliers can avoid Quality Control (QC) challenges that lead to increased costs for them and substantial financial exposure for the client.
Our clients have hundreds of thousands of products moving through their supply chains. In many cases multiple factories are producing parts for a single finished product. With deadlines being critical to any business we provide daily visibility via a single dashboard using Smartsheets which are populated and maintained by our team. Highlighted are any variances to originally scheduled production and ship dates so clients are in the know in real time.
Throughout each project we report frequently and consistently, leveraging technology, photos and videos for progress reports
