Supplier Background Check
Sofeast uses our local expertise to vet potential suppliers for you. Our focus is on assuring that your supplier is legitimate (no scams), has their story straight, is offering competitive pricing, and more generally is a good match for your business.
We can sometimes suggest suitable pre-approved suppliers (as part of a wider project) if you are struggling to find one.
New Supplier/Factory Sourcing
We consult you to get a very deep understanding of your requirements, and then search and contact export-ready suppliers on your behalf.
We search the most relevant directories and our own network of qualified manufacturers that has been built up over many years.
The goal is to find the best possible provider for your needs.
Experienced project managers act for you on the ground in China or Vietnam. We’ll make sure that your project is on track, delivery will be made on time, that costs stay under control, and will also push suppliers where needed.
Your project manager will be in regular contact so you are well-informed that your project is progressing as planned.
We support FBA sellers to help you to stop spending all your time on China operations and free it up for marketing & new product search/design instead.
FBA seller support gives you back control over your supply chain! You get expert help from our experienced production managers in China who deal with your suppliers, quality assurance, and logistics, giving you peace of mind.

Production Readiness Review
When a product is launched in a factory that has never made it before it is important to start making it in small quantities to confirm that the production processes, people and equipment, as well as the testing stations, are capable of making your products at the expected quality and speed.
We conduct a review at the factory during the pilot run/s so you can confirm the supplier’s readiness for mass production based on facts. not just on their say-so.
Tooling Custody & Management
Instead of leaving your tooling with your Chinese supplier between productions where it may be at risk or damage or being used without your authorization, we receive it and store it securely at our Dongguan facility.
If you want to reduce your risk and protect your investment, explore how we can help you by being the trusted custodian of your tooling and by performing inspections at key milestones.
