Introduce you to Vietnam factories

Who can I introduce you to?

Our sourcing company in Vietnam has been established for over the last 20 years. We have local Vietnamese staff that communicate with the factories. If we don't know the factory personally we contact them to get their updated company profile before introducing you. We have a database of over 200 suppliers making everything from apparel, shoes to plastic injection molding products.

Do you receive commissions from suppliers?

Sometimes. Depends on which supplier. Normally we charge our upfront fee to ensure we get paid something because more often than not the factories don't pay as promised. In most cases we give you the suppliers contacts and you work directly with them and we never hear from you or them again.

What happens if factories don’t meet my expectations?

Once we introduce you to factories, you will be able to contact and work directly with them by email. If factories don’t work out for you then we will get involved to understand why. If the first three factories don’t meet your expectations, we can introduce you to more depending on the reason the factory did not work out.

What should you prepare before contacting the factories?

We recommend you have tech packs prepared in advance to email factories. If you don't have tech packs then how will you communicate what you want produced? It is also important to have a clear and confident order quantity in mind that you want to produce.

How does your sourcing support services compare to other agents?

We don't charge a commission. We don't want to get in between you and the factory. We charge an upfront fee. We deliver on our promises or give you your money back because having a good reputation is more important than being greedy when there is an innocent misunderstanding or miscommunication. If you are not happy with our service then tell us and we'll either do what it take to make you happy or give you your money back.

Our Vietnam sourcing expertise starts with understanding your needs!

To ensure that you obtain the best quality and price while you choose Vietnam sourcing experts, the first step is to determine what exactly you need. Our Vietnam sourcing experts will ask you details related to product specification, quantity, order frequency, target price, packaging specifications and the time line. Following that, we will investigate, evaluate and introduce you to the best suppliers in Vietnam for your needs. We strive for an efficient and smooth sourcing experience for you. If we can't deliver then we'll tell you upfront and refer you to a better solution provider.

Vietnam's Unique Selling Points

Vietnam sourcing experts opinion: Many garment buyers source factories in Vietnam expecting cheap prices; at least, cheaper than China. They are usually disappointed and ask themselves, why did we come to Vietnam? Why are prices higher in Vietnam? What is Vietnam’s unique selling point?

The reason prices are higher can be explained using supply and demand theory. There are more orders for Vietnam than there are Vietnamese factories. Consequently factories don't need to work hard to do proper costing and or improve factory efficiencies. A typical factory gets new inquiries each week. If only one out 10 inquiries results in new business without the factory having to offer super sharp pricing then there is not incentive to figure out why their Vietnamese price is higher than the China price. To get super sharp pricing you need to push the factory and give them incentive to do so.

The Vietnam Garment Industry has unique selling points. One of them is that Vietnamese merchandisers speak English well. Ok, you might also say that there are Chinese merchandisers that speak English well. Also true. Chris's point is that, after living in Vietnam for 10 years, and having travelled to China to meet many Chinese factories he can confidently say, more Vietnamese speak English well than Chinese.

We are talking about merchandisers that work in garment factories. And it's not just formulating sentences, it's their attitude to communicate clearly and solve problems intelligently. We think the Vietnamese are better than the Chinese on this point.

Another unique selling point from a Vietnam sourcing experts point of view is the labor cost. Minimum wage is $170 USD per month. Most sewers get paid $250 USD per month which is 50% cheaper than China sewing wages.

Another unique selling point from a Vietnam sourcing experts point of view is the relatively stable socio-economic system that exists today. It's safe to move around the country and relatively fair in terms of business practices.
