How We Can Help
On-the-ground Operational Support for Sourcing and Procurement
There is a growing interest from many companies who want to diversify away from buying in China for strategic and competitive reasons and begin sourcing from Vietnam, Indonesia or other countries in Southeast Asia. With offices in all these countries, our local teams can support you with product sourcing to find multiple manufacturers in one or more countries in the region, giving you more options in terms of sources of supply.
Our sourcing services include:
- Research: Finding manufacturing factories that best match your requirements. The research phase includes sending samples to you for your evaluation
- Negotiations: Our local staff offer local language assistance to help conclude negotiations that will lead to successful procurement and project execution
- Audits: Before delivery, our local team will visit the factory to do an inspection of the finished products. Alternatively, we can arrange for a third party agency to conduct an inspection before shipment.
Orissa International undertook a sourcing project on behalf of a leading US company in the packaging solutions sector that was looking to source from Vietnam. We provided the client with a pre-qualified list of local manufacturers of leno mesh products in Ho Chi Minh City, describing in great detail their capabilities of manufacturing the products according to the client’s specifications, in terms of size and location of factories, types of looms in their factories, availability of export license, product size, color, type of stitching, labeling, as well as pricing. Our staff in Ho Chi Minh visited selected shortlisted factories to verify the information provided, obtained product samples for the client, as well as key contact information including export manager’s name, email address and mobile phone number.
Orissa International assisted a US manufacturer of medical devices, which was looking to source a specific type of device from Malaysia required for their intermediate phase of production. Our team in Malaysia undertook a program of calling to over 20 manufacturers of similar devices in Malaysia to identify which company was able to manufacture the exact product based on the specifications provided by the client. Having identified a suitable manufacturer, we pre-qualified it it with a list of questions to verify their manufacturing capabilities and certifications. We obtained all the relevant details to help the client in their discussion with the manufacturer, and ultimately connected both parties for the production-level engagement.
