The core business of our company, Eastern Scope, is building bridges between Europe and China. We help manufacturers and distributors in Europe to either buy or outsource production in China. We focus on Vehicle Components and Agricultural components but are open to any other market.
Our strength lies in 25 years of experience in working with people and companies in China. Our many prolonged visits to the country pay off. Over the last 25 years we have built up a strong and extensive network encompassing a range of disciplines. We have thorough knowledge in all areas of doing business in China, and are familiar with all aspects of trans-acting with the Chinese. Next to our permanent presence in China by means of a (native Chinese) Sourcing and Logistic Manager our regular trips to and in China form an indispensable link in our chain of contacts. Regular personal visits are crucial to maintaining these links so that they can be reactivated at any given moment. This is why we also visit companies at times when we do not have any immediate business for them.
Besides our own office and the factories that manufacture for us, Eastern Scope has several other partners in China. Although not directly involved in manufacturing, some partners look after the sourcing for us and introduce us to the right factories. Others cary out quality controls in our name or take care of fluid distribution. This eliminates part of the risk at the outset, saves time and allows us to find a manufacturer for virtually any product in any quality or quantity you can think of.
At Eastern Scope we save our partners up to three years of blood, sweat and tears from the moment they make the strategic decision to start up business in China. Doing business in China often involves taking one step back for every two steps forward. But Eastern Scope can help you with a well-thought-out plan, open communication about what to expect and not to expect, and a clear time path. By doing so we can achieve our final goal: a long-term, profitable relationship.
Eastern Scope is a company with a limited staff, a limited overhead and very short communication lines. You deal directly with the people that actually travel to China. They will guide you through the process of buying or outsourcing from enquiry till arrival of the goods in your warehouse. This - combined with our ability to find the Chinese production partner that best suits your needs - is your guarantee of success.
Trailer parts manufactured by Eastern Scope can be found on almost every big brand of consumer trailer in Germany and the Netherlands.
We have everything from jockey wheels through brake cables to hinges manufactured in China, mostly according to the customer's demand and specifications, but also for off-the-shelf sales. As the range is growing every day and new products are continually being added, it is impossible to provide an exhaustive list of the products we manufacture. Contact us for a personal consultation and we will find a solution that will fit you like a glove.
Looking at cost saving, the big advantage of China is the cheap labour. The big disadvantage are the costs of transport. The big advantage of this disadvantage is that big savings can be made.
In short; Eastern Scope realizes the importance of controling the logistic proces - from manufacturer till your warehouse. Not only beacuse we want the goods to arrive in the same good condition in which they left the factory, but also because a lot of money can be saved by shipping in the right way.
We invest a lot of time and energy in optimising these costs; we only send full containers, we have our own warehousing facility in China, make serious studies of how to optimise packaging both in volume and in firmness and have our own logistic manager in China who supports our logistic department in Holland.
As you see, your goods are in 'save' hands.
Sourcing in a land with 1,3 billion people is a tough job...
At Eastern Scope we save our partners up to three years of blood, sweat and tears from the moment they make the strategic decision to start up business in China untill they get their first correct (!) goods in. Sourcing in China often involves taking one step back for every two steps forward.
