As a business owner, you’re likely always in search of new ways to make your business more efficient, effective, and financially responsible. Manufacturing your own goods is a huge accomplishment, but one that comes with more concerns about managing it. If you are looking for ways to streamline manufacturing, manufacturing in China is probably something that comes up often. Is offshore manufacturing right for your business?
When considering new things, it is wise to research those who have made these changes in the past and whether they have been successful. When you start researching companies that are currently
manufacturing in China you may be shocked. Large companies, that are very recognizable, have been engaging in full or part, in offshore manufacturing for years. Many of these businesses don’t publicize that they manufacture offshore, so consumers are simply unaware. Others are very open as to where they are manufacturing and their reasons for doing so.
While a full list of companies that are currently manufacturing in China would be very long, some brands you likely recognize and possibly buy from include:
- Best Buy
- Borden Foods
- Campbells Soup
- Canon Electronics
- Dell Computers
- Gap Stores
- Harley Davidson
- Johnson & Johnson
- Kraft Foods
- LG Electronics
- Office Depot
- Victoria’s Secret
As you can see in this very abbreviated list, some very well-known and successful companies are engaging in offshore manufacturing. The choice to move to manufacture offshore is likely a bit different for each business, but usually, it comes down to making manufacturing as efficient and as affordable as possible. China is known as the manufacturing powerhouse of the world. Even with the logistics of manufacturing on another continent, most of these businesses have found that manufacturing abroad simply makes sense.
