Sourcing in


Finding a good production partner in China is not easy. It is time-consuming to visit factories, as well as to ensure the proper alignment of production, exports from China and handling of all customs formalities and duties. MAiNS takes care of this work – or parts of it – for you.


MAiNS is your partner in sourcing, with qualified professionals in China to monitor your order on the spot.


In general, the sourcing process goes through several stages: 


  • Phase 1: Defining product requirements

  • Phase 2: Identify potential suppliers

  • Phase 3: Selecting the supplier(s)

  • Phase 4: Requesting a quotation and granting the contract

  • Phase 5: Project management

  • Phase 6: Logistics, customs clearance and delivery (see also export support)


MAiNS offers guidance and advice at every stage of the process, even if you found suitable supplier has already been identified but you seek local support only. MAiNS is here to support you for the whole process, or selected parts.


MAiNS can make the process even easier: you define the desired product and we present a sample, a price, and a delivery date. Upon agreement, there is nothing for you to do, except to receive the delivery on the agreed date. In this way, MAiNS essentially serves as your Purchasing Office in China.


As you can see, there are many possibilities which we are happy to discuss with you in person.
