I've known David since 1993. David is high integrity and hard working in every undertaking.  I've worked with Baysource on several outsourcing initiatives through the Association for Corporate Growth (ACG). They know this market very well and have become an important resource for me as I evaluate investment opportunities and cost saving opportunities in Asia.

We hired Baysource during our transitioning phase to outsource our manufacturing. Their adaptiveness to the economic conditions surrounding our industry and customers as well as keen eye to detail were superb. David Alexander is one individual who can step right into any situation and see the forest through the trees. He's a systemic thinker, visionary, focused, personable and results driven. I would recommend Baysource without reservation.

Our Approach to Sourcing in Asia

We have experience in manufacturing and product sourcing. In addition, we have access to multiple factories and several regions and provide several quotes from capable custom manufacturers. Our team in China personally represents you, available for face-to-face communication with factories and performing hands-on quality control inspections.

As a China sourcing agent, we are not obligated to promote any one factory, but will source the best manufacturer to produce your product.

From our past experiences, we have learned that good communication between all parties involved provides the best results; the combination of our partner companies and global trade gives you a source that you can trust to handle your needs.

We have an in-office team of 70+ people, some of whom are located in China, which means they’ll be conducting business in the local language. This is a real advantage. When you use an agent like us, you will have Chinese businesspersons doing the negotiations in your behalf. This is more effective than a foreigner trying to fumble around in the Chinese business culture on his own and learn the ropes as he goes.

Our project mangers subservices include: logistics, freight, supply chain management, and coordination of multiple vendors. We believe high integrity, trust, and quality are the key to any business success.

Our promise is to always deliver quality service, provide customer satisfaction, and create relationships that’ll last.

When you’re looking for a China sourcing agent, make sure they offer you the following capabilities:

  • Fluency in Mandarin and Cantonese
  • Thorough knowledge of the Chinese business culture
  • Quality Control experience
  • Audit experience
  • Logistics experience
  • Experience in managing Chinese suppliers
  • Category and sourcing process experience

Whether you’re looking to enter the Chinese market or want to outsource product development and manufacturing to China, our team will help advance your business goals.

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.


Process Improvement

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.


Factory Turnarounds

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.


Vendor Management

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.
