Working with experienced manufacturers

Ultimately, we want you to tell us the product you want.

This is the first step, your Statement of Work.

We aim to develop a collaborative approach to product design and development, one that supports and strengthens the creation of new products to provide you with a competitive edge over your competitors.

That’s why we help find the right manufacturers, get the best quotes, and support you through each stage of the process.

How you can develop and manufacture a new product in the Far East with ease 

Do you want to manufacture high-quality products from some of the best factories around?

For start-ups and small to medium-sized businesses who want to launch a new product line or increase current product production, price and manufacturing costs are significant factors that can ultimately impact the product’s survival in the market.

However, by moving manufacturing operations to the Far East, you can reduce these costs considerably. But, where do you start? Which factories do you use? How do you distinguish those `ok` companies from those who can offer you excellent quality at competitive prices?

Let GHL Procurement help.

We not only have the experience and the expertise in the field, but we also have the contacts and base in Xiamen, China, to hit the ground running, offering you a swift service that delivers quality results.

How to avoid the risks of product development overseas

Let us help.

Working with a professional procurement company like GHL means you can avoid some of the most common pitfalls in product development and outsourcing. Pitfalls such as:

• Misunderstanding/miscommunication between customer and supplier about the development of the product.
• The contribution from all parties and what this contribution entails.
• Understanding and setting in stone what will happen with the IP rights when the product is complete.
• Securing timelines and milestones for stages to be complete.

Thanks to Huw, I’ve finally achieved my dream – to design and manufacture my very own range of pet products. Working with the same tried and tested manufacturers in the Far East for several decades removed the huge worry of the unknown at a stroke.

Annie Llion

Owner, Annie's Underdogs: Pet Products

We were daunted by the prospect of having our in shop displays manufactured in China but I want to say thank you very much to Huw and the team for their fantastic work. They have answered our brief perfectly and handled the entire process. We now have the unique display we were after, at a price we couldn’t beat. I would definitely recommend GHL.

David Lloyd

Director, Robert E Lloyd: Optician

Arleigh has been supplied by GHL  with several products over a number of years. They took care of the details so we didn’t have to. We would recommend working with Huw to anyone who needs a product sourced from the Far East.

Alastair Thomas

Managing Director, Arleigh International Ltd

I have started my first product with GHL and Huw in particular.

From sourcing components, to making moulds and getting samples.

We are at the stage of production now and I feel Huw’s expertise and knowledge is priceless, especially considering this is my first time dealing with the Chinese way of business!

Huw is almost like a business mentor to me and always at the end of a phone call or message for any questions or queries that naturally occurs.

Highly recommend!

- Daniel Anderson

We have worked with GHL  on a number of projects. They have access to fantastic resource and manufacturing capability in the Far East. Huw is a great guy, easy to work with and keen to ensure that the job is completed properly.
