CPG is service focused, our product is a sourcing management system (SMS), which combines the know-how, management, and sourcing systems we have developed and honed since 1978. Any China sourcing program, whether the end product is electronic components, garments, tools, or pharmaceutical ingredients, requires an optimized SMS to be effective.
As we apply the SMS to our client’s programs, specific product expertise becomes an essential component of the procedure. We obtain this product expertise from the following sources:
The primary source of expertise is always the customer, who knows best. This expertise is especially relevant in the way the product fits into their program (including packaging issues and concerns).
Not all customers have in-depth expertise in the product they purchase. We supplement their knowledge with the expertise of industry experts, either on a full-time or on a part-time basis.
Manufacturers themselves are a great source of additional expertise that can supplement the body of knowledge needed for a successful sourcing program.
Throughout its history, CPG has dealt with a wide range of products, with many different Chinese suppliers. The combination of our SMS and product expertise means there is no product that is too difficult or too technical for CPG to handle.
