Full Case Story:

Case study 1: One of the leading Australian metal product distributers, MPD has over 20 years experience in the industry. This company has their multiple category products supplied by local import agents and overseas suppliers, yet both have had many issues with product supply.

For local agents, issues like low quality products, faulty products and even incorrect items for some shipment can arise. Local agents have also become less efficient in responding to requirements and are faced with the issue of high price. Overseas suppliers provide certain category products of high quality, but they are also faced with a very high price.

MPD strives to be the best in the market and retain a reputable brand name. To achieve this goal, China Manufacturing was recommended to complete cost efficient manufacturing in China for MPD. Our Chinese manufacturers began to organise the main category packaging materials to meet the requirement of improving the overall image and products for the market.

Anthony, MD of the business was amazed by the efficiency of the product development process. Within a few weeks, the first whole shipment of the new developed packaging material arrived with superior quality and at a competitive price, compared to what they received previously from the local business.

China Manufacturing began to prepare and manage all 7 ranges of category items, around 1500 items in total. Our staff members worked to manufacture these items for the business starting from sourcing, evaluating, selecting, communicating with manufacturers and finding suitable, qualified manufacturers.

China Manufacturing's China team are specialists in procurement, sourcing, quality control and supply chain management. Within 3 months when whole shipment arrived at MPD's warehouse, the results achieved were dramatically improved without increasing cost. Instead, the cost of the whole process was dramatically cut down, the quality was controlled to the superior standard for every category product before going out from different factories, logistically arranged in a timely manner and products were consolidated effectively to their door. All issues arise during the process were managed by Chinese team on the ground. Best of all, all specified manufacturers could be updated according to the specific requirement of each shipment.

With every shipment, MPD were amazed by the superior quality, efficient process and dramatic savings. This includes savings for each process during the supply chain, contract manufacturing, new product development, quality control, storage, consolidation, logistics and resources from MPD in house. Whilst this all took place, our team worked on outsourcing the packing process to China for a whole range of products. This did not only save packing process management cost in Australia, but also savings for the whole process without compromising packing quality and delivery time.

MPD is happy with having hassle free quality products supplied for every core and noncore category products in their business by working with China Manufacturing Australia.

MPD saved $400,000 on their costs first year AND gained a massive improvement in product quality and packaging that put them ahead of the competition. Best of all, this was done without hassles, headaches and time consuming of managing products supplies and developing new products. They are now able to focus on their core business aiming to increase more market share and stay ahead of competition. In addition, they also accelerated the process of achieving the goal as being the best in the industry.

Case study 2:

The skin care manufacturer (SKM) in Australia always needed to develop new products with its new packaging, for their local and international customers. Local suppliers could provide limited styles of packaging product with high price, but SKM did not have resources and connection to source from China except sourcing from Internet, which led to experiencing failures. After all the time spent online, issues still arose, to the stage where SKM were concerned about the material, design, finished product quality and the credibility of overseas manufacturers.
