I want to manufacture MicroSD cards in my home country. Please give me the information about where we can purchase the manufacturing machines & raw materials in China.

ANSWER:

While I have purchased entire production lines and large amounts of raw materials in various products, unfortunately, I don’t personally have experience with the equipment used to build your particular product- MicroSD cards.

However, I looked at www.GlobalSources.com and believe there are many suppliers of microSD cards are fair prices. But if you must manufacture the card in your home country, then I would like to offer you some options:

  1. Make a list of the equipment needed and raw materials then search those items one by one. If you need support from agents to manage this RFQ process for you, you can find a list of sourcing service providers at http://chinasourcinginfo.org/endorsed-service-providers/
  2. Contact a supplier in China and offer to buy their entire production line. This sounds like a one stop shop and if their business is not doing so well, they may be happy to sell you the entire line.  If their business is strong, perhaps you could pay them a consulting fee to help you set up your production line or at least tell you the steps involved. But they may not be willing to help if they view you as competition.
  3. The last option I can think of would be to hire a 3rd party consultant.  This person would be an expert in MicroSD cards and could help you list the equipment you need as well as offer suggestions on how to set up the line in your home country.

Wishing you successful China sourcing!
