And you’re not alone. The China sourcing industry is huge. In just 2015, China exported almost 500 billion dollars worth of trade goods into the USA! So the quest then becomes how to find quality manufacturers in China. As businesses continue to look for ways of cutting production costs and increasing profit margins, they are outsourcing more of their production and manufacturing operations to China.
Finding a quality manufacturer in China that can not only meet your production needs, but also your quality requirements can be an almost maddening task. In fact, a quick search of the internet will reveal hundreds of nightmare stories regarding Chinese suppliers: fly-by-night operations, scams, incorrect product shipments, shoddy quality, holding orders hostage, etc. This is why it is absolutely essential to perform your due diligence when searching for a supplier.
If you do not want to go through the hassle of identifying quality manufacturers in China or visiting facilities, then your best bet would be to hire an external sourcing agency or supply chain management (SCM) company.
