Your Global Connection

 

Tributary Sourcing will help you improve margins, diversify the supply chain, streamline product pipelines and protect intellectual property.

4 SIMPLE STEPS
TO BETTER SOURCING

Our lean organization and processes allow for highly competitive pricing on non-commodity components, materials and products

  • Define Product & Service Requirements

    We can get started with fully defined specifications or as little information as drawings, samples or even sketches. Our team of engineers can help refine your ideas and bring them to reality. Tributary Sourcing welcomes any size project!

  • Quotation & Factory Inspection

    Our diverse and scaled network of pre-qualified factories support competitive pricing and responsive manufacturing. If your unique needs require factory support outside of our network we’ll deploy our engineers to locate, inspect and fully qualify a new source. Only when the factory is qualified and selected will we proceed with your order.

  • Risk Free Pre-Production Samples & Signoff

    A purchase order is necessary for the factory to tool up for proprietary products. Samples are provided in a few short weeks for customer approval and qualification.

    The purchase order is not binding until the pre-production samples are approved. Once the samples are approved we secure the contract by signing off on our agreement to consistently meet the quality standards of the approved pre-production samples.

  • Execute & Measure Results

    Production begins immediately and the factory is monitored by our local staff throughout the manufacturing process. If pressed for time we have many options to expedite the transit time to meet your needs.
