How to find a good Chinese foundry
Many iron casting buyers are interested to
since China is the largest casting base in the world, and there are
thousands of Chinese foundries.
For small Chinese foundries, they just have dozens of workers and
usually just produce very simple and common
iron castings or
steel castings. For the
large foundries, they have hundreds of workers, and can produce over
ten thousand of tons each year.
Since there are so many metal foundries in China, as a purchaser for
iron or steel castings, how can you find a capable and suitable
Chinese foundry for your products?
Some buyers may join some exhibitions or trading shows to find their
suppliers. Of course, this is a direct way to talk about some issues
face to face, however, you still can not see their real conditions.
As I know, there are many trading companies who attend the
exhibitions actively, but some metal foundries will not join these
exhibitions since they have had many clients or they have no budget
for those meetings.
The most economical and quickest way to search these Chinese
foundries from internet, by
Google or Yahoo
search engines. You can look over their websites to check their main
products, casting workshops, machining equipments, and inspection
devices directly. I think you should be able to learn all
information about your suppliers by their websites if they attached
importance to their exporting business.
