Materials Sourcing

Finding good suppliers for parts or materials for small businesses can be tough! Often, companies that list as selling "wholesale" are selling for higher than average retail price! Companies that truly sell wholesale require large quantities - which small startups may not be able to afford. When you find a company that has a good price, they may not be able to meet the needs for rising volume over time.

This issue is one of the primary cost factors for small startups, but it is not the only issue. Sometimes you just need a part that is incredibly difficult to find in the version you need. Or you may need a part that is only available through overseas manufacturing - not a realm that the average startup owner can, or should, navigate (indeed, we don't either - we simply locate the more difficult to find alternatives).

Your business relies on dependable suppliers, from whom you can order as-needed, and be assured that you'll get the order in time. While we can't guarantee that we will be able to find this kind of supplier for all materials, we can assure you that if they are out there, we are likely to find them for you if you cannot find them yourself.

If you need assistance with materials sourcing, you'll need to contact us and get a quote from us to meet your specific needs. You may also purchase a consulting session, during which we'll teach you some skills to go do the job on your own - the consultation costs $200 and includes email follow-up.

If it's out there, it can be found. If it is not out there, an alternative can be found.
