Factory Tour

Factory Tours Made Easy – Get More Out of Your China Trip

Factory Tour

Visiting the factory is by far the best way to determine if the factory is suitable.  By visiting the factory you can eyeball the equipment, production capacity, the quality of the factory workers, the sample room and the factor’s internal quality control systems. It also allows you to negotiate pricing and payment terms directly with those with authority to make decisions, the factory boss, and head engineer.

Easy Imex has sourced over $90 million dollars worth of products since 2004. Having dealt with thousands of factories, we know that most suppliers on Alibaba and Made-in-China are middle men, claiming to be manufacturers. They simply want to subcontract potential orders to legitimate factories. This causes no end of problems including: quality issues, communication issues, delays in lead times,imprecise quotations and compliance fraud. By working with Easy Imex as your China sourcing agent, we'll ensure that you're working with a qualified manufacturer that's capable of meeting your quality, price and lead time requirements.
