THE SHIELD WORKS DIFFERENCE.
What makes Shield Works truly unique and why should you choose us as your long-term manufacturing partner?
100% BRITISH OWNERSHIP
Trust is earned when action meets words.
Shield Works is a WFOE (Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise) setup in full accordance with PRC laws and regulations for assembly, manufacturing and product distribution and exportation.
At Shield Works we believe in western standards of service, communications and quality.
All 3 founding Directors are British and have been based permanently in Asia for the past 14 years.
Our parent company C2W was founded in 2005 with the core values of transparency and integrity. These principles have remained integral to our success and form the backbone of the Shield Works service and working methodologies.
BUILT-IN IP PROTECTION
Secure your interests at the source of manufacture.
Intellectual property (IP) is a longstanding, critical concern for companies operating in China. While China has made steady efforts to better protect and enforce IP rights infringers themselves continue to become increasingly sophisticated. They often exploit procedural loopholes, proactively seek to invalidate legitimate patents and trademarks, deploy advanced techniques such as reverse engineering, and find new ways to infiltrate legitimate distribution and build their own parallel networks.
Shield Works offers unique and unprecedented IP protection for your products with secure individually designated production, assembly and warehousing zones within our facility.
Tightly controlled internal information handling processes, contractual and legal procedural enforcement and staff hiring/allocation practices along with finger print access to all key production areas helps to secure your product IP within the Shield Works facility and protect your interests at the source of manufacture.
QUALITY DRIVEN FOCUS
Quality is never an accident.
It is always the result of intelligent effort.
At Shield Works our primary focus is always final product quality and our highly trained production workers apply ISO work practices and standards to all elements of production throughout our facility.
We are proud to employ each and every Shield Works production line worker as a QA inspector - if issues are identified, all team members have full authority to stop the process and quickly correct any problems. We have a pro-active approach to quality and believe the earlier a problem can be identified the quicker we can react and implement appropriate corrective measures.
We work with our clients to customize our quality plans and activities to their exact needs ensuring inspection levels, criteria and testing parameters align exactly with their quality aims and mutually agreed product specific standards.
Trust but verify.
Shield Works’ internal factory SOP’s and quality procedures are accompanied by built in dual-layer independent QC verification for every production run from parent company C2W’s team of experienced Quality Inspectors.
C2W (China 2 West Services Ltd) established in 2005 offers a wide range of inspection services to meet the needs of companies having goods manufactured in China. We understand the importance of ensuring goods are independently verified throughout the manufacturing process in addition to standard in-built factory quality checks.
All production undertaken at Shield Works will as standard practice have C2W’s basic quality inspection order services applied adding a secondary layer of reassurance to our clients.
C2W Global HQ is a short 35-minute commute from the Shield Works plant enabling frequent independent verification throughout production.
C2W’s highly trained Quality Engineers will act independently from Shield Works operations and report to you directly.
