    Default Are you buying from China?

    Hi Purchasers, are you buying goods from China? How is your impression about Chinese factories/vendors?

    Hi, though you have posted your question long time back I would like to reply on it. Yes, our organisation have been purchasing goods in bulk quantities from China. And we have a good impression regarding the job done by them. We also have visited the factory premises of the Chinese manufacturer and found those factories to be large, organised and competent to participate in the international procurement business.

    Large number of spare parts like forklift and various electronic goods are exported from china with no guarantee at all so no one is at the profit buying such from china rather they would like to invest more in quality.

    Im also buying stuffs on a china lawn mower parts store and they are still working well. Maybe you just need to take good care on all the items that you will buy even where is came from.

    China,I would say is one of the major countries where others buy their products. There are issues others would face but China is a good country to invest in. Chinese are naturally business minded people.

    Generally we do not buy from China but in some cases we consider buying from China like if products are good quality, price of such goods are very less.

    I am not a purchasing agent but I have helped a friend who is a mechanical engineer procure raw materials such as carbon fiber and aluminum from chinese sources on wholesale websites such as alibaba and even chinese ebay vendors. My friend is manufacturing custom telescopes designed for astronmical imaging and he needs high quality raw materials for the lowest possible price. I have found that the vendors on alibaba tend to be very competitive with pricing and that it does not take much effort to negotiate a deal that leaves both parties happy. The only problem with ordering raw materials from china is the shipping time. Expect a 15-30 day waiting period for just about anything traveling that far which must be checked and approved at so many points along the way. You can always go with air freight but as expected, there will be an astronomical cost involved. I don't know how I would feel about having parts manufactured in china but if you can find a chinese company that provides a product which meets a strict tolerance with little to no error in production then hey, why not go the chinese route?

    It would be interesting to know what the popular sourcing locations are now. So how about a Poll?

    Probably best if you do not tick your own country! i.e. If you work in India and source from India....

    So what countries do you source from?
