We Are Source Mate

Supplier Research

We provide an online platform to quickly research factories, collect quotations and order samples. Our sourcing experts come from a wide variety of businesses and are at your disposal without incurring a fixed cost on your business. Existing Challenges Since its spectacular opening in the 1970s, China has been the factory of the world for a large number of goods. While big multi-national companies have used the country as a production base for many years, better information and increasing cost pressure is forcing small- and medium sized companies to follow suit. While sourcing manufactured goods from China has never been easier than today, many challenges remain. To address just a few:
  • Finding the right factory for the job.
  • Buying at the right market price.
  • Knowing the key cost drivers.
  • Locating manufacturing clusters.
Each of these problem can be solved on its own, if enough time and resources are available. This is especially true for big companies with dedicated purchasing departments or niche players, who specialize in a single product category. Unfortunately, the tools, processes and methods these established players are using are not suitable for smaller companies, who operate on thinner margins and in a less predictable environment.
