Offshore Manufacturing in China – A One-Stop Solution
When it comes to offshore manufacturing, China is undoubtedly the first country that pops into mind. And for good reasons, too - it is home to some of the world's largest and most reputable manufacturing companies.
Until now, you must be thinking that going for overseas manufacturing in China is a no-brainer! And you won't be wrong - but only if you find the right manufacturing partner. Otherwise, you'll risk losing money.
But what if I ended up partnering with a manufacturer that cuts corners to save costs, and as a result, I receive sub-standard products?
Worse yet, what if my manufacturing partner rips me off, and I lose a lot of money with no product to show for it? Many foreign companies who moved their operational process to offshore countries ended up in this situation, having been lured by a favorable tax environment and very few environmental regulations. These are all valid reasons for product development companies for production offshoring, but it can only work if they enter into partnerships with reliable suppliers.
Yes, these are your valid concerns!
Because most of the companies who came to us agree that finding a reputable offshore manufacturing partner in China is like finding a needle in the haystack, but once you find the right match and negotiate fair pricing - the benefits are endless.
From efficient manufacturing techniques to access to cutting-edge technology and skilled labor - working with a Chinese manufacturer will give your business a competitive edge.
Let's take a look at why we choose China for offshore manufacturing!
Partner with an Overseas Manufacturing Company – Why China?
As we stated before, finding a reputable manufacturing company in China is not an easy feat - but it's definitely worth it!
Did you know that?
According to the latest research on export markets and overseas suppliers, "in 2021, with $2.5 trillion of manufacturing output, China accounts for 30% of the global manufacturing output."
So, it's no secret that China is the world's largest manufacturer, and if you're looking to scale your business and reduce your operating expenses by moving your production operations offshore - China is the perfect place to do it.
Overseas manufacturing companies in China have a reputation for being reliable, cost-effective, and delivering high-quality products. But there are a lot of fake businesses, too.
But wait a minute!
The Chinese manufacturing industry is not all rainbows and butterflies. Like any other country, it has its own set of challenges you need to be aware of.
Most companies are fake and scam overseas clients by developing fake portfolios and offering too-good-to-be-true services.
Then how can I know that the company I'm partnering with is not one of those fakes?
The answer is - in most cases, you will never know!
The reason is pretty simple.
While being overseas, you have no way of physically verifying if the company exists or not and what is its actual market strength.
So, what can you do to mitigate this risk?
The only way to do that is by having a contract manufacturer in China, such as Morpho MFG. Who can help you manage your production phases, from company shortlisting to product shipment?
The local contract manufacturers have an extensive network of reliable and reputable suppliers. They also have a dedicated quality control team that ensures that the products developed and delivered to you are up to the mark and per your specifications.
Is everything clear till now?
Now, let's look at offshore manufacturing – reasons to do it!
Why Do Companies Offshore Manufacturing?
The answer is quite simple!
To save money and time while ensuring high-quality product development.
Let's unpack it!
Offshore Manufacturing – The process of developing products in a country other than the one where the product will be sold. In simple words, it is developing a product in one country and selling it in another.
Every company cannot develop all of its product components. It requires a lot of resources such as money, time, and workforce.
That's where offshore manufacturing comes in!
It enables companies to focus on their core competencies while the product development process is outsourced to other countries. As a result, offshore production saves companies time and money.
But only if you partner with the right company!
Another main motive behind offshore manufacturing is to take advantage of the benefits the developing country offers, such as cost-effective solutions, access to state-of-the-art technology, and professional staff. Moving the manufacturing process outside of the company's home country can also grant it easier access to raw materials and lower labor costs.
That's why China is the go-to choice for most companies looking to offshore their manufacturing.
You might be a little skeptical about it, and that's okay!
Now, let's check out how to find a reputable overseas manufacturing company in China!
How to Find a Reliable Offshore Manufacturer in China
The internet is full of scammers and companies claiming to be the best in the industry. They will try to woo you with lower costs and skilled workers, only to cease all manufacturing operations a short while after receiving money from you. Some businesses even go as far as ripping off your intellectual property. With so many options available, it's quite easy to get scammed if you're not careful. Here are some tips that will help you find a reliable producer in China.
Better be safe than sorry!
That question might be bothering you now, and the answer is quite simple.
By partnering with a contract manufacturing company with an extensive network of reliable suppliers and a dedicated team.
To help you out, we have listed a few tips that will enable you to find a reputable and reliable offshore manufacturer in China.
• Recommendations and Market Analysis
The first and the most important thing you need to do is to ask for recommendations from your network who have already availed of such services.
This will give you a fair idea about the kind of companies you should be targeting.
In addition, you will also find some articles on the internet saying that you should also check online directories. But no one ever tells you the negative side of it.
Is that it?
You will be amazed to know that most of the scams were done through these online platforms only.
So, what else can you do?
The only reliable way is to hire the services from a contract manufacturer in China. Morpho MFG is a well-known contract manufacturer in China currently working with some leading brands. We have a pool of trusted manufacturers selected after rigorous analysis and several pilot runs.
• Analyzing Their Production Abilities
Before going into this topic, we want you to understand that anything can be claimed on the internet, but not all of those claims are true.
The production ability of a company is one such thing.
Due to the lack of production facilities and workforce, many companies in China outsource their projects to other manufacturers. As a result, the supply chain is extended, and the quality of products suffers a lot.
As you know well, the major priority of the company outsourcing your project is to keep the cost low. To achieve that, they might have to compromise on the quality of products you would never want!
So, how can you be sure that they are not faking it?
The answer is:
On-site visits - if you can't, then partner with a trustworthy contract manufacturer like Morpho MFG.
• Expertise and Reputation
We are the experts!
That's the most common line you will find on the websites of many companies. But what does that actually mean?
The truth behind it:
Everyone can call themselves experts but only a few of them really own that title.
The expertise of a company is defined by the number of years they have spent in the industry and the kind of clients they have served.
For instance, our CEO visited three factories daily for the first two years to shortlist some of the best manufacturers with real expertise through pilot-run and on-site verification.
• Professional Staff and Certified Facility
The professional staff is one of the most underrated factors to consider while searching for an offshore manufacturer in China.
Did you know that?
It's often overlooked because most of the companies don't give it much importance!
They don't understand that a team of professionals is the backbone of any company.
A company's staff should be courteous, helpful and knowledgeable so that they can cater to all your queries in the best possible way.
But what about a certified facility?
Is it really important if I just need a prototype?
Of course, it is!
If a company doesn't have a certified facility, then there's no guarantee that your products will be up to the standards. Also, a prototype is considered to be the foundation of your product.
So, if the prototype itself is not up to the mark, how can you expect the final product to be any better?

The Best Way to Go!
As we have already discussed, finding an offshore manufacturer in China can be daunting, especially if you don't have any prior experience in this field.
It requires a lot of research, time and effort.
Most of the clients who came to us had already tested 2 - 3 overseas manufacturers in China, but they were unsatisfied with the results. And most of them don't even get the product in their hands!
Is there a 100% risk of getting a scam?
No, but most of the time, it happens. Because clients try to save a few dollars by working with new or small companies, they end up getting scammed or having a product that is not up to the mark.
So, why should I trust you?
We are not here to brag about ourselves but let's look at our capabilities - save time, save money!
