“This is a commercial ‘heads up’ for UK firms trying to build a cost-effective foothold in China’ – Andrew Harrison.
HOW TO MAKE BUSINESS EXPANSION INTO CHINA REMOTELY POSSIBLE
A specialist Shanghai-based investment partnership is pioneering a brand new ‘highly cost-effective’ remote office scheme to help UK manufacturers expand into the Chinese market.
Andrew Harrison, lead auditor at Rubicon Partners Industries China (RPIC) says the new ‘remote office one stop shop’ initiative will enable UK manufacturers to get into China faster and more easily than ever before.
Said Harrison: “Shanghai is an ideal location for a remote office. The city is both a vital transport hub and centrally located. But we know from years of experience that setting up in China can be seriously complex. Our new remote office scheme can help companies benefit from having an employee based in the country. That recruit can then cut the costs of an existing supply chain or work on a new outsourcing strategy.”
He added: “We recruit bilingual Chinese nationals to overcome language and cultural barriers. “
Integra, a UK manufacturer of curtain and blind suspension systems, used RPIC’s remote office scheme, which can cost as little as £20,000 for the first year, to find a design engineer in China.
John Martin, Integra MD said: “RPIC has the in-house skill sets that companies like ours need when it comes to finding key staff in China. Now we have an employee in situ the design process has become quicker and more effective.”
“The new designer not only supports the existing in-house product design and development function in the UK, but works directly with business partners in China to manage the transition of new products from concept to volume manufacture.”
He added: “It’s made getting someone out there a lot easier and cheaper than if we’d be doing it on our own. Remote office facilities are a great idea for companies who need only one or two individuals but want to somebody to monitor them. The initiative is working so well we are considering plans to extend the service to other aspects of our UK operation such as quality assurance and supply chain.”
RPIC are now offering a formalised version of the service for UK-based organisations.
Said Harrison: “I’m hoping that with more recruits in-house we will be able to create a truly proactive and dynamic centre of excellence.”
