Sourcing with Quality Assurance from India

Most companies around the globe are now evaluating their upstream supply chains and seeking suppliers with competitive price quotes from India. If your company has not looked at this option before, it may now be the time to look strongly at India. When compared to China, India excels at sourcing industrial materials, engineering goods and metals.

For companies seeking India only a one-time procurement, cost advantage is India's primary draw, but companies seeking more permanent stakes may find immense benefit derived from the product quality and manufacturing flexibility offered by an Indian supplier. India's proximity to China helps in lowering the shipping costs and helps companies balance trade risks.

While the cost advantages of sourcing and procuring from India is obvious, most companies often delay their entry due to the initial capital and management outlay required, and the complex operational and regulatory environment in India. One solution to such problems is to retain the services of a product and material sourcing company.
