Before you dive in and spend your hard earned dollars on any type of product development work, we can sit down and go through answers to question like:
•Who will buy my products?
•What will people pay for my products?
•How will I market my products?
•Is my new product likely to function in the way I planned?
•What will my final product look like?
With this type of knowledge, you can assess whether you wish to progress to the next stage of development.
Whether you have a design on a notepad, or a more detailed prototype, our company can help you to:
•Improve and Refine your design schematics,
•Produce specific data sheets and detailed drawings, and
•Find a reliable an innovative way to produce your products to the requirements you need.
With a trusted set of specifications, you can be confident that your products will be made to meet your quality standard every time. As the owner and producer of your design, you need to ensure that all of your products meet with the local Australian standards. We can help you in the standard process so that you have confidence that all of your products are safe. It’s worth considering that you may even sell your product overseas. So it is good practice to make sure that all your products meet, and can easily be changed to meet other international standards. This helps you avoid any redesign needs of the product if you intend to expand your business.
These days it is very easy for someone to copy your idea, but there are a lot of different laws in place to help discourage this type of activity, you can minimize the odds of this happening to you. We can provide you with a Non Disclosure Agreement to be signed.

Our Main Focus is to find you the best quality and best priced factory for your products to be produced, based on your projected order size. This is relevant for new innovations, to avoid ending up having a large amount of stock with nowhere for it to be sold.
Once we have all of the above sorted, we can go ahead and start researching for the right manufacturer. We have a large portfolio of factories that we have built up over the last 15 years that we have worked with in Australia and all across Asia. If your product needs a specialist skillset that we do not already have accessed to, we can research for a good manufacturer match for you and your products.
Just like any area of business there are many mistakes that can be made, this can be true when purchasing goods from overseas. Our Buying Service can help you find a reliable and safe supplier of goods, we can work directly with a supplier that you have found, to help you save time and money. An overseas supplier often does not have a solid concept of the safety requirements for products, and they are often not aware of all the local port and shipping charges associated with processing and importing your shipment to your country. To save you the headache, we can:
•Help you find the best supplier, or we can deal with one that you have already found
•Negotiate and communicate with the supplier in their language to get you the best price.
•Book the international freight with our many agents in china.
•Add in quality control checks along the way to ensure product standards.
•Take care of all the details of customs clearance, importing & foreign currency exchange.
•Arrange door to door delivery of the goods once at destination port.
Sourcing quality customized goods from overseas brings new layers of complexity rather than just buying an existing product made overseas. It is very important to use clear communication, very detailed specifications with a great attention to detail. Without these types of checks in place, you could risk introducing design and development faults leading to a shipment of goods that are not made to the specifications you requested. When these situations occur it is easy to blame “the China factor”, when it was may well have been an avoidable situation in the first place with more thought. By working with you on clearly defining exactly what you want, we can communicate that directly to the factory in their language, and following up with checks to ensure everyone is on the same page, we will make sure that what you ordered is what you get.
