Insider News : Pro QC VP/Americas Makes Presentation in Mexico City
On June 26th, Michael L. Hetzel, VP/Americas of Pro QC based at our Chicago Americas headquarters, presented "Buying from China: Making Sure You Get What You Pay For" at a meeting of the China Chamber of Commerce and Technology Mexico in Mexico City.
The Chamber focuses not only on support of its members for imports, but is also providing valuable support for exports from Mexico to China. Michael's presentation was based on the fact that buying from China has both rewards and challenges. The key rewards are obvious - low cost and access to the Chinese market. Many of the challenges are less obvious and involve the selection of qualified suppliers, negotiation of terms, communication of product requirements, controlling delivery schedules and ensuring that the products that are shipped conform to your specifications.
In the presentation, Michael reviewed methods for qualifying factories, communicating specifications and quality expectations, negotiating payment terms and reducing the risks of late shipments and receiving non-conforming products. Attendees learned how they can achieve their objectives to source quality products from China at the lowest possible cost and risk.
Michael has presented information on supply chain quality management as well as global manufacturing and trade flows at events worldwide, along with writing many published articles. And, he is recognized as an expert in these topics. For more information or to inquire about booking Michael for an event you can contact him at email@example.com.
