ChinaTech Sourcing | Case Study 2

Volume Project


ChinaTech Sourcing was approached by Volume – a small new company – who wanted to source some simple die castings.


The project involved:

  • Initial cost estimates based on concept designs and IGES files
  • Identifying potential suppliers in China
  • Supply of similar component samples from potential suppliers, including finishing options
  • Supplier selection and nomination
  • Working with the customer to develop the concept designs with respect to Design for Manufacture feasibility
  • Pre-production quality approvals and PPAP samples
  • Supply of production parts DDU to the customer’s factory


The project was delivered on time and within budget, entering Volume’s production in 2007 with relatively modest volumes. It demonstrates that ChinaTech Sourcing can support projects ranging from very simple to more demanding requirements.
