For many companies, finding manufacturers in China that fit their brands, offer a reasonable price and high-quality products can be difficult. It’s a good idea that before you start looking for manufacturers, you should know the product you want to make, the materials, the price you want to sell it at, and how many you want to make. If you know all these things, you can actively search for manufactures that will suit your company.
There are several ways to find Chinese manufacturers including:
Alibaba: Alibaba is an international business-to-business platform where businesses can find and connect with manufacturers. It is easily the most popular website for finding Chinese manufacturers, but it does have a reputation for having a large number of suppliers over quality ones.
Made in China: Made in China is another website that puts businesses in contact with manufacturers in China. Made in China is recommended if your company is looking to manufacture industrial products and parts and it provides inspection and reporting facilities.
Global Sources: Global Sources is Alibaba’s biggest competitor, but it doesn’t have trade insurance. It does have a rating system and reviews, so you should read through them thoroughly to make sure you find a reliable and trustworthy manufacturer.
One of the best ways to find Chinese manufacturers is by attending the most popular trade show in China the Canton Import and Export Fair. It’s held in Guangzhou twice a year and is split into 3 phases, the first phase is electronics, the second covers home decor, consumer goods, and gifts and the third phase includes garments, shoes, textiles, and office supplies. However, if you’re unable to attend a trade show in China, there are trade shows in the United States that Chinese manufacturers attend. Trade shows are an incredible way to meet prospective manufacturers face to face, get information from them directly, and compare suppliers in person.
A China sourcing agent is a third party that helps a company find manufacturers or suppliers for products from China. You can use these companies to find the best supplier for you. A good sourcing company should have a system in place to find a manufacturer that is low cost and creates high-quality products.
