Ask JingSourcing for suitable and qualified PPE manufacturers.
We can work well for your PPE wholesale and custom project.
Our quote is direct from the factory. For a type of PPE under the same requirement, our prices are typically 10% lower than Alibaba suppliers. Moreover, our minimum order quantity is friendly to startups and small businesses.
Take the Life Jacket for example. A client purchased 5 different colors, 15 pieces per color, and wanted to customize the logo. He found suppliers on Alibaba but was refused, as he couldn’t meet the custom MOQ of 500 pieces.
So he asked us for help. Our agent sourced life jackets from a cooperative factory, for around $15 per piece. For logo customization, we found another factory that specializes in label-making. Although our logo MOQ is small, the label factory was willing to do it due to our long-term relationship. The custom logo cost was also reasonable, approximately a little over $100.
The cooperative willingness of suppliers is crucial for purchasers, especially when your custom PPE project MOQ is low and the budget is tight. Choosing us can save you all these concerns.
Besides that, we inspect PPE products to control quality. For small quantities, it’s typically a full inspection. If the quantity is large, AQL sampling inspection is common. Regardless of the method, we send inspection videos and confirm with you whether the detected defects are acceptable. As for defective products, we will help you replace them for free if you choose our Pro Plan and use our selected suppliers.
Additionally, we can arrange shipments to the port or your door as negotiated at the best shipping rate, saving your overall sourcing costs.
