Overseas Sourcing Services
CSS' Overseas Sourcing Services help Clients source consumer, industrial and medical fiber reinforced polymer (FRP) composite products with less risk and fewer headaches.
We do so by providing the engineering, manufacturing and logistics support needed to establish and maintain reliable overseas sources for new FRP composite products ... as well as qualify and manage alternate FRP composites suppliers for greater landed cost savings or to resolve recurring production problems.
Import High Quality
FRP Composite Products
All FRP composite designs are reviewed for ease of manufacture overseas and the ability to control quality both in terms of product performance and appearance. Where possible CSS suggests design changes and helps the Client optimize the product for mass production.
If the starting point is a conceptual or rough product design CSS' FRP composite Product Development Support helps Clients refine and validate product designs prior to sourcing overseas.
Clients then utilize CSS' Overseas Sourcing Services to perform critical sourcing functions an ocean away:
- Select and vet capable composites suppliers
- Solicit production pricing and estimate landed cost
- Scrutinize production tooling expenditures
- Manage qualification samples and production pilot runs
- Qualify FRP composite processes and production lines
- Establish production controls to maintain product quality
- Troubleshoot production to ensure on-time delivery of acceptable products
CSS also handles all overseas supplier communications, places Client Purchase Orders, prioritizes overseas production, resolves manufacturing issues, and coordinates production shipments for Clients.
Each shipment is tested and visually inspected prior to shipment. Acceptable FRP composite products are shipped directly from the overseas manufacturer to the Client's specified location.
CSS also executes Product Change Notices and smoothly integrates FRP composite product line extensions.
Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber
Composite Shaft Production
Vetted overseas composites manufacturers use table rolling or Bladder Inflation Molding (BIM) to produce tubular composite structures for applications such as arrow shafts, push rods, paddle shafts, golf shafts, ski poles, canes, booms, posts, armatures, bicycle frames, bats, handles, and other challenging shapes.
Carbon Fiber Composite
Bladder Inflation Molded
Stroller Frame Members
Vacuum forming, compression molding, and autoclave molding processes are used to produce FRP composite applications such as contoured covers & guards, flat springs, structural inserts, stiffened skins, sandwich panels, etc.
