Like most members of the industry, almost on a daily basis I receive emails offering me to have motorcycle parts prototyped and produced in China. Most of you who are not professionals think that these offers come directly from Chinese companies. Yes, for some. But a majority are sent by American or Canadian based companies. I am getting irritated and decided to publish one of these offers I received this morning in my email box. Americans unite!
“ARC United Corp. is a USA based company We have one mission – to bring the cost savings of Asian sourcing to the small and mid-sized manufacturer without the hassle and risk normally associated with international procurement. It’s no secret that the cost savings from Asian sourcing, primarily in China can be drastic. Cost savings of 50% to75% are possible in many cases. However, most small and mid-sized companies have no idea how to source in China and be assured of quality parts.
This is where ARC United Corp. can help. We are headquartered in Southern California with our corporate office in Taiwan and engineering offices in Shanghai, China, Dong Guan City, China and Taipei, Taiwan. Each facility has a complete in-house engineering and quality control staff. When you request a quotation from ARC United Corp. the job is evaluated by our engineering department then the job is forwarded to several of our pre-approved vendors. There are literally thousands of companies in China that claim to be able to do the work you require. However, our engineers and QC staff have done an on-site inspection of any vendor that we allow to do your work in order to apply to our ISO 9000 standards.
During tooling and production our engineers and QC people will be involved in your project every step ofthe way to make sure nothing is left out or done incorrectly. You will receive a first article report done by our engineers with samples prior to initial shipment and be able to enjoy the savings while relying on ARC United Corp. to ensure the quality. ARC United Corporation. Please call for a free design evaluation & quotation.” Jay Navarro. 2275 E. Francis Street. Ontario, CA 91761.
