In addition to all of our Core Services we offer a range of other services in China including:
Supplier & Product Sourcing
Sourcing from the Far East can be a risky business. Finding a reliable supplier is the first problem, with only a website to look at, it is impossible to know if you are dealing with a state of the art factory or a back street sweat shop.
Our sourcing team will select and assess the most suitable supplier to meet your needs. We ensure your requirements are understood and weed out the unsuitable or incapable. We will then monitor and inspect to ensure that the quality of production items actually matches samples!
When you use C2W, you will have your own experienced team in China, who will oversee your order and ensure you avoid the common pitfalls of low quality goods, poor communication and unexplained delivery delays.
We understand the QPS equation – Quality, Price, Speed
From experience we know that without ‘eyes and ears’ on the ground you will be doing very well to achieve two variables in the QPS mix. We are here to ensure all three are met first time.
We have a database of established suppliers we know to be reliable and will use the information you provide to find which company best suits the criteria you have set. Within a short space of time we are usually able to tell you the ability of suppliers to meet your needs and will send photos and samples for your evaluation.
Once samples have been approved we are able to arrange production and ensure quality control throughout the manufacturing process. Our ability to provide a constant presence on the ground provides an incentive to the manufacturer that is impossible to achieve from your home-base.
Private Label Manufacturing in China
One of the best things about China is the country’s highly developed manufacturing infrastructure and expertise in dealing with the needs of a varied range of industries. No matter what kind of product you are looking for, chances are that the country’s manufacturing sector with be able to cater to your need with top quality solutions available at affordable rates. However, the concept of private label in China is still in its nascent stages, which is why you will need the guidance and support of an entity that understands the country’s market and can point out the most reliable industry players that you can work with. The team from China 2 West is best qualified for that job.
Using the services of private label in China can be your shortcut to success as long as you have C2W’s market knowledge and industrial might on your side. Get in touch with our team today for a product consult!
Prototyping Services in China
China 2 West offers in-house prototyping services in China from our Zhuhai HQ. We have invested in American manufactured 3D printers allowing us the capability to print prototypes of up to 30cm cubed with a same day service.
This is a great as a standalone service or to aid our engineers in general design work and DFM (design for manufacture).
In addition to this we’ve partnered with a local facility in Zhuhai allowing us to take advantage of a vast range of prototyping abilities, including:
- SLA and SLS Rapid Prototyping
- Injection Molding
- CNC Machining
- Aluminium Tooling
- Silicone and Rubber Molding
- Clay Molding and even 3D Scanning/Printing
Our C2W design engineers and industrial designers in China can use a range of engineering software including Solid Works, AutoCad, ProE and more meaning designs can not only be created but also edited and tweaked before and after printing of a prototype.
Tooling & Molds
Since molds and tools are generally labour intensive products, manufacturing them in China makes financial sense. You can sometimes expect savings of up to 100-300% over western manufactured tools of an equivalent quality when placing your orders with C2W.
We have an in-house team of experienced mold and tooling designers and we use some of the very best mold and tooling manufacturers in China.
According to your requirements and budget, we can manufacture lower quality short run molds all the way to high quality auto-grade EU/US certified molds.
Your China Presence
If you are looking to enter the Chinese market but are worried about the risks involved due to, amongst other things, distance from base, lack of local knowledge, and registered capital required to open a Chinese company then C2W can help give you your initial presence in China through our Managed Outsourcing services.
Through our WFOE in Zhuhai we are able to offer a full range of services to allow you to place a foot into China without having to dive fully in.

POP & POS Displays
Point of Purchase & Point of Sale displays have become somewhat of an expertise of ours at C2W. We are heavily experienced in the design and production of POP & POS displays in China, for many years we have worked with large brands such as Footjoy and Glenmorangie.
A growing trend due to the huge cost savings of production your tools or molds in China and shipping them to your facility abroad, this is another strength of C2W.
