Before your high valued industrial products can be put to good use. They must first be engineered, tested, manufactured and transported. That’s where we come in.
With a focus of delivering on quality, price and customer service, we understand the pressure to reduce cost, streamline supply chains or the importance of determining new avenues of business to compete in.
Having created several multimillion-dollar product lines, we have a supply network that spans 3 continents and includes 7 of the top 10 most competitive manufacturing nations.
Our sourcing methodology is designed to achieve a commercially salable product, produced anywhere in the world. Our five step process is adaptable, and can include everything from initial product development to supply chain management to order financing.
Stop being at the mercy of suppliers dictating the terms. Get the products your customers want, on the shelf, and in stock.

Our goal is to understand what outcome(s) you wish to achieve, your ideal cost structure and project timeline.
This step allows both sides to learn from one another and decide if a mutually beneficial relationship can exist.
Once the path forward has been accepted, our team will get to work. Depending on the services we have agreed on, you can expect your project timeline to be anywhere from 3 to 18 months.
With your help, we identify your essential product criteria. Everything from material specifications to communication preferences to product packaging needs.
The information gathered here becomes the blueprint for our work together. We will approve production partners that meets all the requirements contained in the checklist.
At this stage we will ask you for product samples (if they exist). This is to help speed up development and remove any assumptions that might have been made about the product you want.
Everyone wants to save money, but not at the sacrifice or poor quality.
By matching your essential product requirements to an approved production partner, we remove the possibility of receiving off-spec material through site visits and factory audits. Some of the elements we review include:
‣ Product quality
‣ Product cost
‣ Production expertise
‣ Production efficiency
‣ Management team capability
‣ Engineering capability
‣ Overall experience and history
Once your factory partner is selected, we move to the lab sample (if necessary), production sample phase.
Once the production sample has been approved by you, we are ready for application testing. This stage is as long as you need it to be to ensure the product works for the operating environment.
After testing is complete, we ask you to place a trial order which is a small commercial order so you can once again confirm acceptable performance of the product.
This step is risk-free because if the product does not show up as the vital factors have indicated, then you do not pay. If it does, everything proceeds as normal, and we proceed to full commercial orders.
After approving the trial order, the next step is organizing full orders.
If we are managing your orders, we will keep you informed with weekly updates, pre-delivery inspection reports and take care of any issues that arise.
If we are not managing your orders, this marks the end of your successful engagement with us.
