Sourcing Specialist

AC's sourcing Specialists will be responsible for performing sourcing in support of client objectives and ensuring that  purchasing module is maintained to provide accurate and useful management data and reports. We follow our guideline to:

  • Put the client’s interest ahead of our own.

  • Behave as professionals and show respect to local customs and culture, as long as we don’t compromise our integrity.

  • Keep our client information confidential.

  • Tell the truth as we see it and get to real issues, and reach practical plans.

  • Deliver the best to every client as cost effectively as we can. We expect that our people act as if their own resources were at stake.

We believe that solving the tough sourcing problems requires the best people. We believe that the best people will be drawn to the opportunity to work on the tough problems. We believe these two parts of our mission reinforce each other and make our team strong and enduring.

 

We maintain consistently high standards for service and people so that we can always bring the best team of minds with the broadest range of industry and functional experience–to bear on every engagement.

 

Payment Method

AC trusts that your

inquiries are serious as

they require expensive

airing of samples, faxes,

phone calls,

transportation, and

lengthy communication

with manufacturers. AC

may therefore require a

small retainer, which it is

willing to waive and/or

allow as credit in actual

future orders.

 

Initial Stage

A mailing account is needed for sample and document mailing. If the expense is more than the mailing fee, a small retainer is needed. The retainer fee will be allowed as credit for future production. 

 

Prototyping Stage

AC requires prototyping fees to be paid up front. However, the prototyping fees may be returned in subsequent orders.

 

Production Stage

40% of the down payment or LC is required before the production run.

 

Shipping Stage

50% of the full payment is required to be paid after production but before shipping if client is in US and Canada. International client must pay full balance before shipping.

 

Final Stage

10% of the balance should be paid after the product is received by client. Lead time is one month.

China Sourcing Procedure

 

      Our clients call us for all needs, whether for major strategic sourcing challenges or operational sourcing. They look to us for honest, objective, thoughtful, and experienced advice. In order to make distinctive, lasting, and substantial improvements in performance of their China sourcing solutions, our senior specialists will dissect their requirements and draw on our internal or external networks to bring together the right sourcing solutions. We will invest significant resources in evaluating prospective vendors, manufacturers, partners and perform due diligence in the selecting process. We will work directly with manufacturing leaders to develop a sourcing plan and implement them. After all, we want to build enduring relationships based on trust among all parties.

Trial

Those who would like to get know our China sourcing ability before starting a strategic relationship with us should have one-product-tryout, so that you can evaluate our China sourcing process.

 

 

Product Sourcing Procedure

 

 

 

 

Labor Intensive Products

One thing that you must be aware of when outsourcing to China is that the price of a commodity such as plastic, metal, etc. is approximately the same anywhere in the world. As such, labor-intensive products and products ordered in large quantities benefit you the most. AC has an established record of cutting 25%-50% of your current costs on products you are currently producing in North America.

Vendor Matching / Competitive Bidding

We first analyze our clients' specific needs and choose three capable manufacturing facilities from our manufacturing network. AC will assess each facility and choose the most appropriate vendor to ensure a smooth and cost-effective outsourcing transition. Our intimate knowledge of these manufacturing facilities will enable us to get our clients the lowest pricing while still maintaining the quality standards you demand. This strategy not only saves our clients an additional 10% in manufacturing costs but also selects most capable manufacturer for the job. 

Price Quote

In order to provide an accurate quote, AC will consider the following facts when providing the price quote: 

 

1.      Design work and drawings with specifications;

2.      Sample product with material code, size, color, etc.;

3.      Packaging requirement (if applicable);

4.      Printing requirement (if applicable);

5.      The quantity of the production run;

6.      Shipping preference such as FOB, CFR, CIF, Air, Ocean, or Express;

7.      FDA, EPA, DOT regulations (if applicable);

8.      Customs duty and clearance.

 

We will quote you the price on a landed duty paid American destination. To make things simpler, you can also offer us your target price and we will evaluate it for its feasibility. 

Sample Prototyping

Before the product run, a sample will be delivered to our client to ensure their satisfaction. If necessary, adjustments will be made to the prototype so our client will have complete confidence in the quality of the product that they will receive. 

Risk Assessment

China is still a transitional country and many processes and systems such as banking are still premature compared to that of North America.  As a result, even though the pursuit of lower labor costs in China will definitely bring in high returns, it will also bring high risks. AC's experienced sourcing specialist will help you avoid or minimize these unnecessary risks to ensure your success by facilitating the exchange of information, evaluating the feasibility, assessing the level of risk, and developing control programs to make any transition as seamless as possible.

Production Run and Quality Assurance

The production run will start when our client has seen, evaluated, and approved of the prototype. AC will implement a quality control procedure to insure the quality of the product. This procedure is built into every step of the manufacturing process through the comprehensive inspection and conformance checks after each critical step in the manufacturing process. All changes in design, process, and package are carefully evaluated for qualification requirements according to both internal and customer -defined quality levels. Rather than focusing on detecting and removing defects after the product is manufactured, emphasis is placed on process quality and improving the production process with the goal of preventing defects before they occur. The AC In-House Inspection Team in Shanghai certifies that it does not currently, nor has it ever, ship products containing detected discrepancies.
