How do I verify manufacturers from Alibaba?

I am looking for reliable manufacturers for Hot Rolled coils. I have detailed specifications but all contacts from Alibaba claimed to be manufacturers. I cannot possibly verify all of them. How do I find the real and reliable manufacturers? And china is huge, where do I start?

Speaking of Alibaba, did you hear about how they scammed the forieng buyers? Check out this article I wrote that Global Sources published:

Thanks again for your question and let me know how things work out for you.
