      How to find NEW products and NEW manufacturers?

      How can I search for and locate NEW manufacturers to approach with the intent to distribute their product(s)? I am looking for a manufacturer that is newer and actively seeking someone to distribute their products versus one who has been in business for a while and already has most of their distribution needs covered.

      Any insight on how to stay informed of emerging manufacturers is welcome.

      So you want to act as a Sales Rep? Am I right?

      You can find new manufacturers on this forum looking for a sales rep to sell their new invented products.

      You can also google it directly. I am sure you will find many new manufacturers saying they have a new product that needs distribution and they are looking for a reputable sales rep.

      Good Luck!

      I know there's a lot of Chinese Manufacturers who want to open to the USA market. Maybe you can write a letter to them to introduce your advantage distribution relationship in your local area.

      Real distributorships from China Manufacturers

      Hi MetalMan,

      The first thing you need to understand is that although many Chinese factories may say you can be their distributor, it is very rare for an exclusive distributorship to be granted. You can be a "distributor" selling the same product in the same market as many other "distributors".

      I deal with this subject in some detail in my e-book on how easy it is to import large or small quantities direct from Chinese factories. I suggest you consider finding a product or products for which you know you can find a market, and import them direct as an ordinary customer.

      If you have experience in a particular industry, you would know what products are in demand and you may even know whether there is much competition in that field.

      You also need to know how to identify genuine manufacturers. In my 22 years as an importer I never used a wholesaler or reseller. My numerous visits to factories in China also showed me that the price difference between good quality items and poor quality items is often very small, so don't just look at price.

      Hello MetalMan,

      You have some very good questions here. If you get real serious I would consider going directly to the factory and talking face to face. Visit the factory and look at the products and production facility. Many times in China you think that you are dealing directly with the factory and it may be a trading company. Trading companies can be good when needed but it really depends what you are trying to do. Just be careful and watch the quality of your products closely. Having a good QC is very important in China, somebody you can trust.

      I think you must know the original region of product, then you can search for new products and its manufacturers. The current level of production in the industry cluster area are always higher than another region.
