Companies providing offshore custom manufacturing service fall into several categories: U.S. based brokers, China based trading companies, China based factories without U.S. support, and China based factories with U.S. support.
Although China based trading companies and factories without U.S. support are capable of providing foreign customers lower price and cost reduction, they're not strong in customization and getting the job done. To be sure, custom manufacturing usually involves design modification and improvement and requires good communication setup between customers and suppliers.
These companies are usually weak on this. They also lack effective quality control and project management system and as a result it's hard for them to maintain good quality and in-time delivery schedule.
On the other side, U.S. based brokers are weak in offering lower price and cost reduction. Their management cost is higher and their connections with suppliers and Chinese government are weaker.
By setting up its own sales and engineering support center in U.S., Hengtai is capable of selling the solution to a problem rather than a positive benefit. Our sales reps can fully understand the problem and need of our customers. Our engineers can discuss in depth with customer's engineers on specific issues which may affect product development and mass production.
On the manufacturing side, our managing team can implement U.S.-standard management and quality system without increasing the manufacturing cost or delaying the delivery schedule significantly.
