Your core business could be in manufacturing or selling which in many cases would require you to dedicate valuable company resources on areas that you are not most optimal. Let us handle the procurement in the most professional way.

Online Research, The Visible Web
We have numerous online databases to locate factories around the world. Some of these resources are well known websites while others are focused around a given product line. We call this the visible web for it is readily accessible from the English speaking world.
Localized Search, The invisible web
We research invisible web factories that do not have presence on international web but rather work through local organizations or localized search engines. These are researched through our local agents via local databases.
