Sourcing Services

Single Point of Contact and Responsibility

We understand your resources are in high demand. Choosing a supply partner often hinges on their ability to support current production as well as the successful launch of new programs. Our business model is structured to meet these challenges.

Key elements of our services:

  • Global Engineered Products
  • Management of the Project
  • Vendor/Source Selection
  • Engineering Coordination
  • Quality Assurance
  • Logistics and Inventory Management

Step One: Project Management

Customer service is our top priority.

Every customer is assigned a U.S. based project manager that will serve as your point of contact. They will manage the entire process - from initial analysis of your needs to product delivery and continued support. You won’t have to worry about dealing with twelve different time zones, language barriers, and lack of technical expertise. We translate all engineering drawings in our Qingdao office for our Chinese vendors.

New Customer & Project Process

Our project managers conduct the following with new customers and projects:

  1. Analysis of Client's Needs
  2. Source Selection Process
  3. Project Planning Process
  4. Qingdao Office Involvement
  5. Formal Proposal
  6. Manufacturing

Step Two: Design Engineering/Prototype/Preproduction

Our goal is to get your project off the ground quickly and efficiently.

From Concept to Prototype to Production…GEP’s full-time engineering professionals within the United States and China work closely with your staff, offering creative alternatives and solutions that will improve your quality and productivity - with a single point of contact and nearly round the clock service coverage.

Not quite ready for production? GEP provides a wide range of design, product development and general staff outsourcing services to help you finalize your product.

Step Three: Manufacture

Our proven suppliers save you money.

Our product sourcing network offers significant savings to our clients as a result of lower labor and operational costs in China, proven product quality, efficient logistic supply channels, and our ability to find and negotiate the best price on your behalf.

Step Four: Quality

Quality product with every order.

Our staff works closely with our clients and suppliers, ensuring quality requirements are met. GEP’s capabilities include implementation of specific internal or 3rd-party QC standards. 

Step Five: Logistics and Continued Support

On-time delivery and continual support sets us apart.

Once the product is manufactured, packaged, and ready for shipment, GEP Source and Trade works with you to provide the most economical logistics service option. With nearly two full ocean containers a week out of our Qingdao facility, we are able to provide you the advantages of overseas manufacturing with the small minimum order quantities you would normally expect out of Domestic production.
