Finding a Manufacturing Partner
Local experts are essential when looking for a trusted manufacturer in China. You need to look for someone with whom you can establish a solid and trustworthy working relationship that lasts for a long duration of time. The best way to find a good manufacturing partner is to follow our proven guideline. As an example, we accompany you to attend Chinese trade shows, one of the biggest of which is the Canton Fair in Guangzhou. At these events, we will connect you with trusted manufacturers that will make any type of product you desire.
With this method, you will not run the risk of scams, price gouging, lack of quality assurance, etc. The best way to avoid these pitfalls is to directly choose reliable manufacturers with years of excellent track record. We will not only help you find the right manufacturer in the first place, but also make sure to negotiate the best price deal for you and arrange the fastest production time. And just like with a manufacturer, we will be happy to establish a partner relationship with you.
Develop a Business Relationship
Once you have found a manufacturer through us in China, in some cases, you can’t approach them as you would in the US. There are very strict customs in Chinese culture, especially in the business realm, and it is in your best interest to learn and respect them. China Assured helps you with building these relationships, which are known in Mandarin as guanxi.
The complexities of guanxi are deep and difficult to adapt to within a short time frame, which is usually equal to the time you need until a product is ready for distribution. Unless you plan on spending a copious amount of time in China and learn the art of relationship-building within the Chinese society, it’s much better to have a highly experienced partner as an intermediary who understands the local culture, speaks the language fluently, and can guide your business in the best possible direction. China Assured will do this all for you.

You can trust the manufacturer to meet all of your specifications; but you should still need to inspect them yourself.
