To be truly successful in China, companies must establish a clear-cut and fully integrated IP protection strategy. This approach must be tailored to meet the specific IP problems the company faces across their product range and should be derived from their explicit goals, product markets, resources and budget.
At Shield Works we work hand in hand with our clients to assist in developing a well-defined and robust Intellectual Property Protection Strategy (IPPS) in China.

You can call on C2W for a single inspection or for a complete end-to-end service. C2W provides a full suite of quality services including initial factory audits (capability, social, environmental), pre-production, in-process, final random sampling, pre-shipment and container loading inspections.

Sourcing in Low Cost Regions - SE Asia & India
South East Asia and India have been areas of interest for low cost manufacturing for some time but they have found it hard to climb out of China’s shadow. This could be about to change very rapidly and it would be wise to act now rather than wait until it's too late.
C2W has been active all over Asia since 2005 and is ready to take on this challenge with regional offices established in Bangkok, Thailand and in Ho Chi Minh, Vietnam.
