OUR

OUTSOURCING PROCESS

Providing Chinese sourced high specification metallic and plastic components and assemblies to both large & SME western customers

UNDERSTANDING YOUR GOAL

Step 1

We begin the process by gaining an understanding of your sourcing motivation and requirements. This will include: a review of your reasons for switching supplier or the basis of your make/buy decision, understanding your NPI plans, and development of your IP protection strategy.

DRAWING

STEP 2

The next step is to obtain drawings against which our suppliers can quote. We will translate any drawings into Chinese and, where necessary, agree alternative Chinese specifications with you. 

Our engineers will work with you to make sure that your exact specifications and required processes are understood and critical manufacturing requirements are highlighted right from the start. We aim to get the job done right first time.

QUOTING

STEP 3

Once we have the right technical requirements, we will approach our supplier base for prices. We use a competitive approach to select suppliers and will receive a number of quotes from our portfolio of trusted suppliers. We also have the advantage of negotiating with Chinese suppliers in their own language, avoiding the trap of higher prices for western customers.

SAMPLES

STEP 4

Once we are happy with supplier selection and tooling is in place, if applicable, we will purchase samples for your review. At this stage our quality assurance people will work closely with the supplier and your engineering and technical departments. We are very responsive, with commercial and engineering teams based both in the UK and China.

FIRST BATCH PRODUCTION

STEP 5

Once you are happy to proceed, we will enter first batch production. We are happy to take a split in your original order requirements so that you can reduce perceived risk and gain confidence before moving away completely from your existing supplier. Our prices are stable, and we do not see big fluctuation in prices during the initial and ongoing procurement process.
