Laboratory glassware & Equipment Customization Options
When importing Laboratory glassware & Equipment from China, you can either buy an OEM product. Keep reading to learn the difference.
OEM (Custom Design)
Nearly every Laboratory glassware & Equipment manufacturer on Alibaba and Global Sources are OEM manufacturers, at their core.
This means that they can make any product, based on your design and technical requirements.
However, don’t expect them to develop your product ideas for you.
Most manufacturers will not even respond, unless you can show the following:
- Case design file
- Bill of Materials
Sourcing on Alibaba.com and Made in China.com
Alibaba.com and Globalsources.com are the two largest supplier directories in the world. Virtually every export focused Laboratory glassware & Equipment maker in China are listed on these websites.
In fact, there are so many suppliers on these platforms, that it can be overwhelming.
That said, there are ways to identify those that are the most qualified:
a. Product scope: Are they making your type of Laboratory glassware & Equipment?
b. Product compliance: Do they have some test reports? (This indicates that they can make compliant products).
c. Social Compliance: Are they BSCI or Sedex certified?
d. Factory or Trader: Are they actually making glassware, or are they only subcontracting production to another company?
Based on these factors, you can filter down the list of potential manufacturers to 10 or 12.
That’s a lot more manageable the 42,174 results from 1,010 suppliers and 499 exhibitors for “laboratory glassware”, on Globalsources.com.
Most manufacturers require that their buyers order at least 500 to 1000 units per order.
Some suppliers may be willing to offer a slightly lower MOQ (300 pcs), but less than that is very rare.
