to ensure you get exactly what you need.
You are looking for an OEM product already available on the Chinese market
You lay out the technical specifications of the product you need.
We select Chinese manufacturers who can make the product for you. You can then personalize the OEM product for your brand: logo, color changes, stickers, packaging, etc.

We will locate a factory to design your product and we will conduct a feasibility study. Upon request, we will provide you with a pre-production sample of the product. Golden Leverage will negotiate with the manufacturer to set the terms of the contract, including timelines and payment.

An in-depth study of your import/export project
Are you looking to optimize your purchasing costs and source your product needs from a highly-competitive manufacturing market? Golden Leverage offers you a feasibility study for your project.
In studying your project, we focus on three main points:
Understanding the product so we can find the right supplier
Together we study your product, its production process and its components in all their detail; this information enables us to locate the supplier who will best meet your needs.
Project cost
We offer suggestions and recommendations for your procurement project. Finding the right supplier isn’t enough: after understanding your product needs, we work together to assess volume options to ensure you get the most economically viable solution in terms of your storage costs, procurement dates, annual volume and working capital requirements.
We can determine the best transport solution for your needs. Golden Leverage offers various transport options (air, maritime, land) ranging from 1 to 5 weeks, which can be adapted to meet your timeline and budget. Production time depends upon the volume and nature of the product purchased.
Consultancy on standards for factories supplying your products
Do you need a specific product standard, such as ISO, CE, or NF? Golden Leverage assists our clients and our partner factories in standardizing and gaining accreditation for your products, production processes and management procedures.

Golden Leverage offers guided visits of the factories in ourSUPPLIER park and/or visits to other factories selected specifically by you. We can also organize visits to Asia-based trade shows. Golden Leverage will study your needs and propose face-to-face meetings over one or several days. We will handle all the organization necessary for your trip and meetings, including all logistical and administrative details HOTEL, train, plane, etc.), leaving you free to concentrate on your procurement project and identify the best vendor for your needs.

In collaboration with our supplier park, Golden Leverage constantly seeks out and audits new manufacturers. We advise and assist companies in optimizing project procurement safely and economically by avoiding middle-men. In fact we make sure we work directly with the factories and production units. Although a manufacturer search can easily be accomplished online, or via one’s network and professional recommendations, negotiations become a formidable challenge given the language barrier and the way business is conducted in Asia. These obstacles are overcome by the proximity, both technical and cultural, of our buyers to potential vendors. With a bicultural, Sino-French team well-versed in Chinese negotiation and purchasing methods, Golden Leverage ensures the final product meets your specifications. Once you provide us with the specifications for the product you are seeking, we select and audit the manufacturers best-suited for your
project. There are six fundamental aspects to this audit:

• Administration and finance
• Production
• Quality management system
• Social conditions and environment
• Participating businesses
• Internal management and processes

Upon request, Golden Leverage can also perform supplementary audits after a review of special inspection points in the client’s specifications.
The objective is to ensure you get the best price-quality ratio.

Golden Leverage offers all the services you need to launch a new product.
Based on your design and technical specifications, we study and verify:

• Technical feasibility of the project.
• The production method plan.
• Costs and timelines for samples.
• Costs and timelines for flow production.

Golden Leverage uses specific methodology, collaborating with qualified partners for new product development projects. An upstream feasibility study enables verification of the viability of your innovation. Starting with a prototype, we check the product’s technical characteristics, confirm its compliance with relevant standards and estimate final production costs. Flow production is then organized and scheduled based on the terms of the contract.

Golden Leverage’s integrated purchasing solution is the easiest way for a company to purchase products in Asia. At your request, our bi-cultural, Sino-French purchasing department negotiates with vendors, monitors production, inspects quality,MAKES the required export declarations and performs the necessary logistics procedures. Our expertise makes purchasing a simpler, more efficient process for you.
