Your

Sourcing Office

in China

We are the trusted middleman between retailers, wholesalers and Chinese manufacturers. 

Due to the ever-growing demand in manufacturing from Asia, The China Office wanted to expand its scope to offer individual services in quality control inspections, as well as freight forwarding.

 

In order to deliver on these services, The China Office is pleased to announce its acquisition of Guided Imports, a leading sourcing, quality control, and logistics company. This permits us to offer more services and through the acquisition, we have obtained a broader presence in China and across Asia.

While The China Office will be trading under the Guided Imports brand for all promotional products and other products, it will remain the trading entity for consumer electronics

About The China Office 

The China Office is the trusted sourcing, quality control and logistics department of European promotional gift companies in China. The TCO team manages the entire sourcing process from requests for proposal to production, and from quality control to final delivery.

By merging Chinese staff with European management, we provide the best of both worlds: fairly priced products with European standards. We assure reliability and quality by making sure our clients get what they want, when they want it, and by adopting Corporate Social Responsibility as one of our core values. As a result, we are able to mitigate the risks our clients face when producing in China. TCO is fully automated, which facilitates the entire sourcing process. This means we can ensure services of higher quality, pay more attention to detail, and have a clearer overview or every order. It also allows us to improve communication with both our clients and our suppliers.

This permits us to quickly fix issues that might arise at any of the production stages and therefore minimize costs for our clients.

On top of a comprehensive and thorough database, our team is specialized in safety issues and makes sure suppliers, production and shipping are all in accordance with the many regulations and European legal standards that exist for each specific product.

Corporate Social Responasbility

Corporate social responsibility is a state of mind. TCO is aware that more and more of our customers want goods that are produced without asking too much of man nor planet.

Corporate Social Responsibility is a priority at TCO. We meet the requirments of the EPPA code of conduct (based on the UN code), the core values of sustainable business, and use this to guide us in our relationship with our suppliers and clients.

As our office is on the ground in China, it is in direct contact with our suppliers, guaranteeing the required standards at all times and ensuring better working and environmental conditions at our chosen production facilities. We monitor all of our suppliers’ CSR certificates in our database and therefore know if there are still outstanding Corrective Action Plans (CAP) to be taken, and if new certificates need to be made.

By using the services we provide, our clients therefore gain trust, comfort, guidance and reliability.
