Manifold Outsourcing to China: We Could Make Money Together

Manifold-exhaust-outsourcing-to-China-discover-sourcing-sourcing-services

Over the past 4 years, I have visited most of the manifold manufacturers in China. Because I ever work for a century-old enterprise from USA as a sourcing manager in Shanghai, we closed the factory in USA and transferred the performance products made in USA to China. We transferred more than 300 types of manifold, exhaust, header, and intake from USA to China, and also help company source “off the shelf” product from Chinese market. (It is interesting that most of the “off the shelf” products are the hots sales products in the U.S. market.)

We ship sample to China, find OEM manufacturers, make fixtures, built samples, check sample, ship sample to R&D department in USA, modified the fixtures and samples, approve the samples, place trail order and mass production order, inspect product before shipment, booking the boat, make packing list and invoice, and released the payment to the manifold suppliers in China. We are in Shanghai, China, we do all the jobs for making the performance parts made in China can be shipped on time.

Manifold outsourcing to China is easy, because you can find a lot of suppliers on Alibaba. But, as far as we know, most of them are trader or small workshops, even if the verify information is a real manufacturer. If you can’t visit a China manufacturer or factory in person, it is hard to verify a real manufacturer.

Our headquarters’ sourcing engineers have quoted with lots of suppliers on B2B sites before they told us they have a plan to outsource manifolds, exhausts, and headers. Unfortunately, they cannot find a supplier who can offer reasonable price.

It is common that Chinese suppliers always provide higher price for overseas customer than domestic customer. Because they feel there are many uncertain factors when quoting for a foreign customer, such as exchange rate and management costs.

Off course, the issue was solved when we contact the suppers in person. We visited them and talked to them face to face. Everything is possible if you have someone can visit the factories in person. Importers need some assurance when importing from China, meanwhile, suppliers need some assurance when exporting products to overseas customers.

Now, I left the company and built DiscoverSourcing.com (Sourcing  Agent in China) to help overseas companies discover the right manufacturers in China.

Performance Products Made in China

Some suppliers can supply complete series manifold, exhaust, and headers, such as products with ceramics, black paint, chrome, and polishing. The material for manifold made in China, including 210 or 304 stainless steel, carbon steel, and cast iron.

A manifold made in China should be 20%~30% lower made in USA when the quality is at the same level. So, customer can get some cost saving or cost down when outsourcing to China.

As mentioned above, a sourcing partner have a lot of different sources and can negotiate for a better price and payment terms, too.
