There are thousands of contract manufacturers in Asia including in China and Vietnam, but if you are a micro-business or startup, your manufacturing volume may be too low for the bigger contract manufacturers to be interested. You can waste a lot of time just making contact with those manufacturers found via Google search – and only then to discover later that most of these manufacturers are irrelevant to your manufacturing needs. Furthermore, not all information about a contract manufacturer is available in English and even when it is, it can be vague or difficult to understand. Using native language in the search, we can help you by identifying those contract manufacturers that are more likely to be suitable for you to carry out your contract manufacturing.
(We also offer the same service for Vietnam upon request. Please contact us if you are interested)

Many Chinese suppliers are trading companies who subcontract manufacturing to factories in China and other parts of Asia. If you want to deal directly with the contract manufacturers, then make sure the supplier you are in touch with owns the factory. This can be achieved through some due diligence to the suppliers in question. There is a company check service available on our platform.

We offer this service on our platform as well, and you will get a short report in English, with answers to your specific questions and photos about the contract manufacturer from the visit.
Yes, you should always ask for samples before you settle for a contract manufacturer in China. 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.
