Identifying and partnering with the right manufacturer is absolutely essential to the success of any manufacturing project in China. With the growth of online supplier networks, many importers have taken it upon themselves to find a manufacturer capable of producing their products.
While online networks are a logical place to start researching manufacturers, it can be difficult to contact and communicate with suppliers you find on these websites. InTouch has sourcing staff both in Mainland China and Vietnam that are experienced in communicating with suppliers in the region.
After working with you to clearly define your product requirements and other expectations, InTouch will begin our search by using publicly available resources and attending trade shows as needed. then we'll contact prospective suppliers that can deliver your product.
When a select group of potential suppliers has been identified, InTouch will review the strengths and weaknesses of each you. You'll receive a report of our findings, including a shortlist of capable suppliers. When one or more suppliers has been decided upon, you can continue to benefit by having our staff help mediate each stage of the relationship from sample requests, opening molds and PO placement.
We're different from other sourcing agents because we don't take any commissions for brokering trade deals. Instead, we'll bill you on an hourly and as-needed basis. We're here when you need us and maintain a high standard of integrity and privacy with each supplier and importer we work with.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.

Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.

InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.

One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.

From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
