Founded by Steven Yang, Anker is a consumer electronics and technology company based in China. The company has offices in Shenzhen and Seattle. In the world of consumer electronics, Anker is getting hugely popular and now it is the most-preferred portable charging brand on Amazon. The success story of the company was hidden in its technically sharp and clever China sourcing.
- The best possible way to find the reliable Chinese manufacturers for your product is to come to China and find your manufacturers on your own. In the view of the Steven Yang, having arrived at the ground zero is way more effective than sitting in a California office. You could see the manufacturing plant, get a complete knowledge about how they are working and secure the on-time receiving of your assignments.
- By remaining present in China, you could ensure better product quality and timeliness. Alibaba is a fantastic place to start out, if only because of its sheer size. You will have to do some digging around to find quality suppliers, and you can do that by sending out Request for Proposal. Be warned that you will get low-quality replies, but you can also get high-quality replies, too.
- When a China supplier is unable or unwilling to answer vital product information, there should be a cause for concern. Don’t expect your sales agent to know every answer to every question, but between them and the production team, technical questions should be able to be answered quickly. If providing an answer to a key product question is avoided or given incorrectly, it is always worth taking a step back.
- Examine the high tech capabilities of manufacturers. Look for their Web and CAD-Cam capabilities in particular. Another important thing to keep in mind if you are interested in developing hardware product. HAX HQ is in the heart of Huaqiangbei in Shenzhen – the city’s largest consumer electronics market. The office includes workspace and in-house workshop but the most important is the access to the entire Shenzhen prototyping & manufacturing ecosystem, which is the best in the world.
All the Chinese cities have been reinvented as the entrepreneurial city, leveraging their manufacturing background, technologically adept labor pool, billions of dollars in foreign direct investment. Achieving the success like Anker is not hard, if you know how to make the most out of it.
