Our client, which is a family-run business in Colorado, US, specializes in producing and supplying LED products – including safety flares, work lights, and sunshades – to both small and large retail chains in the US and Canada, including the Home Depot, Lowes, Costco, and Menards. The client wanted to expand into new categories, such as high lumen bulbs, grow lighting bulbs, shop and utility lights, work/area lighting, and security lighting. As such, the company engaged Orissa International on a sourcing project to assist them in finding suitable manufacturers and suppliers of LED lighting products from Indonesia, Malaysia, Vietnam, and Thailand. Our on-the-ground team in the four markets pre-qualified 10 local suppliers from each country by asking targeted questions to suppliers, including the country of origin of its products, manufacturing capacity, minimum order quantity (MOQ) and product certifications. We introduced our client to 10 suppliers – two in Indonesia, two in Thailand, two in Malaysia and four in Vietnam.
