Made in China

  • Bruce W. Mitchell

Abstract

OK, so you need equipment for your new manufacturing facility in China. How do you go about that? There are three possible options: (a) relocate existing equipment to China; (b) purchase new equipment in the United States and ship it to China; and (c) purchase domestic Chinese manufactured equipment. Each option has its own set of challenges, and the chosen option will likely be based on one or more of these considerations:
  • Time. How quickly do you need to establish manufacturing? Will you have time to work with a vendor?

  • Financial. What is your budget for this project? Can you afford to purchase the first one in the West and then import it into China?

  • Equipment Capability/Quality. Does the operation have to start up with minimal equipment challenges and be able to produce the desired final product requirements?
