Engineering in China
VentureTech: Multidiscipline engineering from concept to production to achieve optimal quality and cost for consumer and industrial products.
It is no secret that China has become the manufacturing base for the world. Yet the engineering in China locally available here does not always live up to the expectations of demanding international clients in terms of production process knowledge, quality expectations, English language communications, project management and engineering experience. Venture Tech’s China-based European and American Engineering in China is the solution.
Two key questions you should be asking yourself:
ONE: “Sure, China has lower labor costs, but is your product engineered to maximize these saving?”
Most cost factors such as components, materials, manufacturing processes and assembly labor are locked in very early in the design process. Once the product architecture and aesthetics are frozen, then the quoting process and eventually production can take place. A Design or Engineering disconnect (with manufacturing) at the critical initial design stage will have a negative impact on every aspect of the project, raising cost and potentially delaying delivery. This is why smart companies (large and small) are engaging engineering resources at specialized 3rd parties like Venture Tech
Two: “Why should I consider Venture Tech?”
> Product development doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. VentureTech keeps costs down by focusing on areas where the client gets the “most bang for the buck”. For example, investing in engineering for performance, aesthetics and perhaps most importantly- “design for cost” (also known as “design for manufacturing”) will pay dividends to the client in both the short and long term. Our Sr. engineers are Western but based in China and supported by Chinese Jr. Engineers. This keeps costs down.
> Our Sr. Engineers have 15+ years of engineering for China production experience. They know the right materials and production methods to keep production costs down without sacrificing quality.
> Intellectual Property is respected. Venture Tech does not have its own brands, we don’t represent manufacturers, don’t attempt to take ownership to the client’s IP as part of our compensation and most importantly, we aren’t a trading company. Other companies may claim to be an engineering firm, but in reality they are interested in running with the client’s ideas on their own via behind-the-scenes factory contacts. In short, when you engage Venture Tech, you stay in control.
> Design for Manufacturing (DFM): Ensuring that the concept is valid and right materials and production processes are in place to ensure price, quality and leadtime targets are achieved.
> Engineering Advisory Services (EAS): Venture Tech supports its clients on an as-needed basis with the following engineering in China disciplines: Electrical Engineering Architecture, Mechanical Engineering, Reliability/ Interaction Evaluation & Optimization.
