Getting Your Product Made in China
There are three keys to getting your product made in China: quality, price and delivery time. What brought you to the decision to manufacture your product in China may be price, but it must not be the sole factor that determines which supplier you choose.
Why? There are many factories available who can make a product for a few cents less than the other guy. But if they can’t deliver a quality product on time, then the price becomes irrelevant. If you negotiate a great price but get a container full of junk, you lose.
This is why our primary focus in helping our customers get their products made in China is to locate a reliable factory that can deliver quality products on time. Our people in China do work hard at negotiating competitive prices for you, it’s just that the price isn’t the only consideration.
The bitterness of poor quality remains long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten.
– Benjamin Franklin
Because of this, our approach isn’t to scrape the bottom of the barrel to find a factory that will quote the price “you want to hear” at all costs. Over the years, we’ve seen that it’s not uncommon for a factory to quote a lowball price to get an order, and then… things start going wrong. The product isn’t delivered on time, or if it is the quality didn’t meet the expectations of the customer… or maybe they don’t deliver at all.
The company that imports a quality product at the best price with reliable delivery times, wins. Those who focus on price alone take risks.
Our role is to help you be a winner.

What Our Customers are Saying
Before contacting Global Trade Specialists, I spoke with a number of firms, all of which justified our anxiety about importing from China. Either we were too small or they were too busy to spend time with us. As a consequence, we questioned whether or not off-shore manufacturing was a viable option for our small business.—
The response we received from Global Trade was different. Although we were new to the importing process and not fully acquainted with the vocabulary, answers to our questions were complete and our concerns were addressed in a clear, unhurried manner. Throughout the process, from beginning to end, Global Trade responded to our emails promptly, on average within 24 hours (3 time zones removed). Punctuality played a role in reassuring us Global Trade was the right choice.
During the last five years we’ve done several manufacturing runs in China through Global Trade; all went without a hitch, except for one. The problem was not due to anything Global Trade did, but needed to be addressed by another company. When I called Global Trade while at a customer’s location, they immediately spent time and effort looking into and resolving the issue. Again, this was not something they caused, nor were obliged to fix.
In short, Global Trade has made it possible for a small company like mine to do off-shore manufacturing.
