We work hard to remove the risks of overseas buying. Any tooling required for production is not invoiced until samples are approved. Assuming good credit, we do not require deposits on either tooling or production. Your credit terms are the same as they would be from any domestic vendor. We are your cost effective sourcing solution. We have the expertise you need to overcome typical challenges found when importing from Asia.
Maurice Pincoffs Company has over 135 years of importing experience. We manage all aspects of the supply chain upstream of our warehouse facility in Houston. We are the importer of record for all transactions, removing the burden from your supply chain team. Our dedicated logistics team manages all aspects of the import and our licensed in-house customs broker oversees all shipments and ensures accurate customs entries. Essentially you will be buying from a domestic supplier with the added cost benefit associated with buying off-shore.
Maurice Pincoffs Company provides inventory storage in our Houston, Texas warehouse. This allows your purchasing team to take full advantage of our just-in-time fulfillment capabilities and cut the lead time for delivery to your dock to just a few days.
Maurice Pincoffs Company has offices in China and Taiwan. Included in our staff is a team of engineers and dedicated Quality Assurance personnel. This team works closely with manufacturers to monitor every order. We ensure that all items are manufactured to your specifications and inspect parts using the same methods and tools that you would use to ensure consistent results.
First of all, using the internet to do your buying is fraught with risk. Who is on the other end of the computer? Are they really who they say they are? Do they want big deposits and the balance of their money BEFORE the goods leave Asia. Do you have to buy huge quantities, arrange logistics and Customs and dedicate significant resources towards ensuring that you get what you order? Even then, you have no assurance that your order will be correct.
Secondly, there is a huge delta between “price" and “cost”. What good is low price when all of the other costs associated with the transaction offset any possible savings. What Pincoffs provides is VALUE- a cost effective solution to offshore sourcing. We believe in the importance of a hands-on approach. Our US based Houston team make regular trips to Asia, at least once and sometimes twice per month. When we are not there, we are in constant communication with our Asian offices to ensure that every detail is handled correctly. Entrusting your offshore procurement to us is something we take very seriously.
Thirdly, our direct physical presence, long history and extensive supply base more often than not allow us to obtain lower costs than buyers without this experience and infrastructure.
