mip-interpreter[at] Bag factory visit

From 16th to 21th, March, I travelled Hangzhou, Zhengzhou(in He’nan province) and Yiwu(A county-level city in Jinhua, Zhejiang province) with a British client. We visited several bag factories. The bags are not fashion bags, they are for business, like the bag car dealers sell to car buyers, or the bag used to carry dance floor carpet. The client also purchased rucksacks, baseball caps, etc.  We also found a lanyard supplier in Yiwu international market. The client flied out of China from Hangzhou.
The picture was shot in a bag factory. My client was talking with the general manager in his workshop. The guy who was smiling was the general manager.

mip-interpreter[at] A new reference letter

Background information:

I picked up Geoffrey Chua on 26th, December, 2015 at Hangzhou Xiaoshan Airport and accompanied his family to a furniture factory in Anji county, Huzhou city. The factory manufactures tables, beds, chairs,drawers, etc. The next day I accompanied them to a factory in Xianju county, Taizhou city. The factory manufactures the same furniture as the one in Anji county, Huzhou city. On 28th, they left from Hangzhou Xiaoshan airport.

"Steven is someone who one can really trust, I needed help to go to different factories in China and they are both far from each other, I didn't expect i could actually get to handle them both if with out for Steven's help. I really appreciated how he is in this not only for the money but because he just cared and wanted to help. Getting his services is so much worth it, you will feel like a local traveling and he brings you to places he knows you are safe and sound. My family loves Steven because he is nice, funny and trust worthy."

hi.steven.tu[at] 4S stores in Hangzhou and Jiaxing visited

On January 29th and February 2rd, I accompanied an American investor from San Francisco to a dozen of 4S stores in Hangzhou, Jiaxing, respectively.The investing company plans to invest in a Chinese online car selling website. They want to survey 4S stores to see how 4S stores utilize online platforms to sell their cars. Basically we talked to the marketing departments of those 4S stores.We got a lot of valuable information from the 4S stores we visited. We can reasonably believe that online selling will become the main battlefield in next 5 years.

mip-interpreter[at] Motorcycle manufacturers in Jinhua visited

It has been a long time since I updated my blog last time. I was busy that I didn't have time to frequently update my blog.

From January 16th to 21th, I accompanied a British couple to several factories in Wuyi, Yongkang, Lanxi and Hangzhou. Wuyi, Yongkang and Lanxi are three counties under the jurisdiction of Jinhua city. Jinhua is a big prefecture-level city in central Zhejiang province, even the famous Yiwu city also administratively belongs to Jinhua city.

The couple purchases race motorcycles, cross-country motorcycles. They have been in this business for 10 years. They have an Amazon store and sell motorcycles in UK from their online store. In Wuyi and Yongkang there are many cross-country motorcycle factories. We visited 9 motorcycles, because the clients wanted to find the models that sell well in UK.

In Lanxi, we visited a Motorcross or Dirtbike crash helmet manufacturer.

My client was test-driving a motorcycle in Wuyi county, Jinhua city.

hi.steven.tu[at] Recruiting a Quality Assurer for an Australian company

Currently I'm recruiting a Quality Assurer for an Australian company. This is a full-time position. The applicants are expected to live in Hangzhou or its proximity.

Some information about this Australian company:

The Australian company is a private company and owns one of the fastest-growing brand names in its industry sector. It designs and manufactures home improvement outdoor products made from wood-plastic composites (WPC). The business is now in its 6th-year, still young and growing very strongly. With wholesale revenues increasing by an average 42% year-on-year since inception, its annual sales is on track to exceed $15 Million in 2015 with a market share of 9-10%. 

Their competitive advantage is being able to comfortably sell into some of the largest home improvement and DIY retailers nation-wide in Australia and New Zealand, the equivalent of America's Wal-Mart and Home Depot stores. Its business is secure and assured of continued exponential growth. The WPC product industry sector in AU/NZ is new. Currently valued at around $150M, it is conservatively expected to grow explosively to $580M by year 2020.

The company takes pride in having been able to operate so far with a small hands-on management team. This year 2014 has so far seen it embark on significant work force expansion with plans to grow the flat organisational structure even more. By year end, total employee numbers will have virtually doubled to account for the stellar business growth and future directions. Right now is therefore the best time for a successful candidate to get on board into a junior but key management role within the organisation.

The company partners with Chinese businesses to manufacture its product range. Currently, these manufacturing facilities are located in the Zhejiang province within a 150-km radius from Hangzhou, making it the ideal city from where it intends to centralize its China-based activities. The position that we are seeking to fill here represents the first supervisory level with responsibility for current operations in China.

The basic requirements for this job are:

  1. young, dynamic, male or female OK, aged 22-35 (definitely no 40+),

If you are interested in this job, please contact me.

hi.steven.tu[at] Reference letter from Jeff B.

January, 2014
To whom it may concern
Reference Letter for Steven Tu

In October of 2013 Steven assisted me on an important trip to the Ningbo/Shanghai area to visit numerous manufactures. These manufactures were widely dispersed by over 300 miles and our schedule was very tight. This was my first trip to China and I tasked Steven with coordinating all of our travel and visits. Steven did an excellent job arranging the meetings, scheduling our transportation and reserving our hotels. I was very pleased with his skill at working with my manufactures to get them to provide much of our transportation from one company to another.
Steven is highly educated and he has the ability to comment on relevant current affairs in China and the US, which greatly helped me to understand the different motivations and thought processes of the Chinese business men/women I met with. Steven interacted with the manufactures in a manner that put them at ease quickly and we were able to put together numerous deals on the spot.
It is without hesitation that I recommend Steven to anyone who needs professional Chinese / English services that he provides.

hi.steven.tu[at] Reference letter from Lennon Rod

I met Steven thru a Online search, 4 weeks of emails to and fro, were spent by me learning and discussing my options having never purchased in or visited China. He found the suppliers/ factory that almost perfectly fitted my needs, all was arranged and purchased by day 2. 
We then visited Yiwu international Trade Market which I believe is a must for all new buyers. However you may not need him down there for more than a day. 
It was enlightening how honest Chinese are to deal with, they are firm, fair but not ruthless. Then once a sale is made very very helpful and friendly. 

Steven was also, we had an agreed cost per day and commission on sales that you need to factor in , but in the along run was worth every penny for us. 
He has a good driver as well, but prices and time frames need to be specific, per hour or per day etc. 
The hotel he recommended near him was great cheap $55 US inc breakfast for a room which was very handy to the Metro and therefore city and other places. 
The only negative is I think Steven should give people a itinerary and time frame of what will be done or where visited at the start of each day or the evening before. 
He also could highlight a few locations within Hangzhou that are a must to see. 
I suggest the Song Dynasty market area at night near Wushan Square and of course the West lake area where you can hire tandem bikes. 

all in all I give him a 8 out of 10 as we achieved all we wanted in 4 days
