AS FORS MW have made significant investments in China since the start of our own office in 2008. The team at place in Shanghai becomes more and more important, by the day, for the everyday operations in Saue, Estonia. Our key role of the Chinese team is to monitor the deliveries, making quality inspections for orders, constantly work to increase the flexibility in our supply chain and by so keep the production flow smooth at the headquarter in Estonia.
We travel a lot at the China office to different provinces to find good suppliers since we need to continuously find new places to source for our products. We always use at least 3 suppliers to do the same part to lower our dependence of each supplier. At the office we have Tom Chen handling quality, technical questions and cast sourcing. We have Julie Zhang in charge of the import and export operations, logistics and administrations. Manager at the China office is I Norris Xiao who is responsible for the overall management and I focus a lot on finding new companies for sourcing. As our motto says "Success is not a coincidence", we all at the China office try to study the market and learn every day because to become the best you need to work hard.
