A Proud History of Helping Companies Buy Direct from Chinese Manufacturers

Since 1991, Global Trade Specialists, Inc. has helped companies of all sizes buy direct from China from quality Chinese manufacturing companies. We got our start sourcing machined parts of all kinds from China, including CNC machined parts, forged parts, sheet metal parts, and castings, as well as plastic injection molded parts.

From there we rapidly expanded into sourcing other products from China, including wood items, apparel, and textiles. We are an American company who works with three trading groups in China with immediate access to thousands of China manufacturing companies. Sourcing quality product from reliable factories is our first priority.

Client Testimonials

I had the pleasure of working with Global Trade Specialists to find a manufacturer in China, for our company’s chalk holder. Mike Genung made the process easy and was great to work with. He always responded to questions or concerns promptly and eased any fears I had about working with a factory half way around the world. Whatever problems arose were taken care of and if I ever outsource to China again, I will definitely work with Global Trade Specialists, and Mike, again.

Integrity Is a Big Part of What We Do

We sign a non-disclosure agreement upon request because we know our customers don’t want their business divulged to others. Our partner companies in China have agreed not to sell our customer’s products to others. We can also sign exclusive agreements with the factory where they will agree to sell your product exclusively to you.
