CSS is your bridge to low cost high quality FRP composite products

Overseas Composite Manufacturing & Procurement Liaison Services

"Clients often realize 10-50% net cost savings without sacrificing quality"

CSS does not buy and resell composite products.   Instead CSS identifies and recommends vetted overseas composite vendors who possess the right mix of relevant composite manufacturing experience and production capacity to fulfill the Client's production needs, whether a new product sourcing need or a second supplier qualification.

Import Value-Added
Composite Products From China
With Confidence

CSS works closely with the Client and overseas vendor to produce carbon fiber or fiberglass composite prototype samples, qualify products and production lines, coordinate production start-ups, and manage ongoing composite production 12 time zones and 8000 miles away on the Client's behalf.   In effect CSS' liaison services are an extension of the Client's Composite Engineering, Production Engineering, Purchasing, and Quality Control departments.

"Our Overseas Composite Manufacturing & Procurement Liaison Services' goal is for every box, pallet, and container shipment to meet or exceed the quality and performance of the approved production samples."

When required CSS integrates more traditional composite engineering consulting services such as Composite Product Development and Composite Production Support to seamlessly transition domestic composite concept development efforts to affordable medium to high volume overseas composite production.

"CSS' fostered sourcing relationships have successfully imported over $4M worth of fiberglass and carbon fiber reinforced polymer composite goods."

Examples of imported composite products produced by CSS' vetted composite manufacturers may include carbon fiber and fiberglass composite tubing for applications such as arrow shafts, push rods, paddle shafts, golf shafts, ski poles, canes, booms, posts, armatures and other complex tubular composite designs produced on straight or tapered rigid mandrels.

High Volume Carbon Fiber Shaft Production And Value-Added Manufacturing

Other sourced FRP composite product examples may include non-linear and/or curved hollow products such as composite bicycle frame members, racquets, bats, ergonomically shaped handles, and other challenging hollow structures produced by Bladder Inflation Molding.

Composite products produced by vacuum forming or compression molding may also be sourced from vetted China composite suppliers.   Vacuum formed and compression molded medium to high volume FRP composite product examples include covers, guards, plates, flat springs, structural inserts, decorative inlays, and other skin or solid composite geometries.

Overseas Composite Manufacturing At-A-Glance ...

Composite manufacturing capability and expertise varies from vendor to vendor but as a collective there are few limitations concerning medium to high volume production of fiberglass and carbon fiber composite parts and value added assemblies ...
