Hong Kong CE Fair Sets Stage with High Volume and Low Pricing
“In the world trade market, you have to see everything that is new,” he said. “We’re always looking for better product at a better price.”
Although he was impressed with some of the products he saw, Hawkins said consistent quality has been a past issue with several of his Hong Kong manufacturers. In some cases, the quality of the first shipment was high but declined with subsequent shipments. Hawkins said he was eventually stuck with the product because it was too expensive to ship back.
“You have to be careful, that’s why is so important to come here and build trusting relationships that are going to last,” he said. “Quality is always more important than price.”
