Our services
Sourcing & Product Development

Sourcing and launching new products can be one of the most exciting things and one of the fastest ways to multiply profits. However, it is also a time and energy intensive task. Most sellers/distributors on average take up to 3-6 months to source and launch a new product. The time period can also significantly increase for new product development projects.

Could you be spending that time focussed on what you’re best at ? Where that may be sales & marketing or product design. Outsource the highly specialized and manpower intensive task of sourcing, quality check and logistics to us. We do it day in and day out and have systems, processes, contacts in place and 30 years experience to do an excellent job.

If you’re looking to develop new products in China from scratch, for your next crowd-funded campaign, allow us to help you with your new product development services.

Or, if you would like to have a chat to get some guidance to discuss your quality control and sourcing strategy or issues you are having with your current supplier, we are always happy to assist you with ad-hoc consulting as well.
