You will have already a list of possible manufacturers / suppliers from an initial research exercise. The next stage of information collection and assessment is important to make sure you do end up with the right choice of manufacturer for your product.
This service will include making contact with companies in your raw list to confirm their manufacturing capability for the particular product or component that you require, qualifying their interest in undertaking any engineering and/ or production customisation for you. Verification will also be done to relevant genuine quality certificates (e.g. ISO). By the end of this process, you will be ready to move to the next stage: a request for quotation.
You will get a shortlist of up to 5 manufacturers that have confirmed their interest to work with you and who meet your selection criteria from the assessment.
Each company will come with a detailed deck of information including the company’s main products range, production facilities/ equipment, credentials and certifications, along with their main contact person names and details.
Note: this service requires the client to already have a raw list of manufacturers ready to be shortlisted. If not, a raw list search service is available to purchase on our platform.

Yes, you should always ask for samples before you settle for a manufacturer. However, this can be less straightforward if there is no existing mould for the product you want to make. You may also have to pay for costs in getting the samples shipped to you. It is advisable to hire a local person to liaise on such matters.
