Our visits to China have become more frequent. What started off as an annual trip to meet with our manufacturers and component suppliers has now turned into quarterly visits.
Most of these visits are short and involve quality inspections on our client's first production runs. But on our most recent trip to China we spent a full two weeks qualifying new vendors, touring state-of-the-art manufacturing facilities and forming new business relationships.
Check-out some of the photos from our trip below:
