Would you trust a supplier who has never been to China to see how their products are made, or to know if the supplier will be around tomorrow?

At Shanghai Freemen, we pride ourselves on providing actionable, up-to-the-minute market intelligence you simply cannot get anywhere else. Our sales and technical support staff receive in-depth training to ensure they are familiar with each product we produce and distribute. We also visit our partner factories in China to see the manufacturing process first-hand, because knowing where each product comes from and how it is made allows us to make first-hand claims to quality and reliability.
