China remains highly competitive, with an average Chinese manufacturing labour cost of $3.3/hour compared with $31.2/hour in the UK, whilst maintaining quality standards equal if not better than that of the west.” [2016 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index (GMCI) – Deloitte]

China is ranked as the most competitive manufacturing nation in 2016 and ranks No1 as the most attractive location for manufacturing on the Manufacturing Risk Index that examines a range of risk and cost factors, including political and economic risk, and labour cost. [2016 Global Manufacturing Competitiveness Index (GMCI) – Deloitte and Cushman & Wakefield Manufacturing Risk Index 2018]

Getting it right in China requires expertise and knowledge that can only be gained through years of doing business in China. Our in-country team of Chinese nationals led by western management understand local business requirement, the cultural differences and western technical requirements. This leads to a high level of success.

Finding reliable, technically competent and stable suppliers in China is challenging, especially with the language difference. China Outsourcing solves this challenge through its long-term relationships with a trusted and competitive portfolio of Chinese suppliers.

China Outsourcing is a risk sharing partner and not an agency. Orders are placed on our UK company and we take responsibility for delivery, quality and supplier cost. We provide a financing package that extends from bill of lading to delivery at your site. We handle the logistics and manage the supply process in order to minimise your inventory costs while meeting your demand.

Sending your own people to market is costly and, without the cultural and business knowledge, risky. China Outsourcing reduces these costs and risk by acting as your team in China. We have an open policy and are happy to arrange and support your visits to our suppliers.
