Why Sophisticated Companies Use our Global Sourcing Services.

Russia's major advantage over other common offshore development and manufacturing locales is the technical skills and education of its workforce. Russia has more personnel working in R&D than any other country. Many of these engineers have solid experience and accomplishments in advanced nuclear, space, military, energy and communications projects. In addition, Russian engineers are very strong in the fields of applied sciences such as mathematics and physics, and the Russian educational system developed to produce highly qualified graduates. Above all, there is still a wealth of undiscovered in Russia. Other advantages are labor costs, proximity to western Europe and America, and shared European culture and history enabling better cross-cultural understanding.
Why is it more cost effective for companies to use our services rather than trying to source product directly?
When an American company negotiates with an Russian vendor, it rarely gets a "Russian price." Knowledgeable companies understand that sourcing product in Russia is far more complicated than finding one or two factories to make product offshore.
A robust outsourcing strategy entails the following:

bullet

First, to get the best pricing, you need former USSR people with a thorough knowledge of the local business culture on your side of the bargaining table. This is the premier strength of our Russian staff.

bullet

Next, there is the issue of quality control. Even companies that place very large contracts find it more cost effective to use our product inspection professionals. This saves them the time and money of having to constantly send their staff to Russia, or setting up a full time office in Russia to monitor this critical function.

bullet

Another key ingredient is having multiple clients that source the same general type of products which are placed with the same Russian suppliers. This helps us get multi-client pricing discounts. It also makes it possible for us to match our clients' products with the most cost effective vendor as production technology changes over time.

bullet

The final component is having one of the most experienced, entrepreneurial outsourcing staffs and an unparalleled network of honest, reliable and proven manufacturers in Russia.
This is why our clients start off with very competitive pricing and almost always avoid production price increases for several years or longer.
We would like to use these assets to help you increase the efficiency of your business quickly and easily.
