Switched on sourcing solutions and a world class product range
Source. Supply. Brand. Aftermarket Backup... OPIL has the answers
Extensive experience in sourcing electrical goods from Asia - appliances, audio visual products, power tools and accessories - has enabled Oriental Pacific International Ltd (OPIL) to build up one of the most extensive offerings of value-added services available on the international market.
Sourcing a huge range of electrical products
In a market where new ideas and products are the ultimate competitive advantage, OPIL has the track record, the extensive networks and the knowledge to source electrical goods. With an established sourcing structure out of Asia, OPIL can take the hassle out of you sifting through the numerous suppliers and factories in China to get you the best value product.
As well as providing sourcing solutions OPIL has also developed its own product design of products, from an initial concept to a CAD design of a product idea to final tooling, OPIL offers proven systems to overcome the difficult obstacles of developing and manufacturing a product offshore.
OPIL's long relationship with suppliers, its close watch on global markets (including trade fairs in the USA and Europe), equips the company to adapt fast to changes in the market and deliver the finished product to clients at lower prices quickly.
Quality Control, risk management, compliance
In Asia, networks are critical to maintaining quality control and minimising risks.
OPIL's worldwide relationships, developed via corporate owned offices on location in Asia, are managed by experienced professionals with local knowledge of the business environment, language, culture and export regulatory issues.
Engineers on the ground are employed full-time by OPIL to monitor and audit the ongoing quality testing of approved manufacturers. Ensuring that manufacturers meet all 'country of destination' industry regulations and that all compliance requirements are actioned in a timely manner is OPIL's priority.
OPIL's product compliance systems and processes make sure that all products comply with the destination market's electrical standards. All products shipped by OPIL - 100 per cent - are tested for quality and performance.
An optional AFTER SALES SERVICE 0800 number* irons out any product quality headaches and keeps customers satisfied that their money is well spent.
FOB, FID*, freight*, warehousing*
Whether it's a Free on board (FOB) solution, or Free into distribution centre (FID) service from OPIL's warehouse facility, the company removes the logistical nightmares faced by many retailers or importers.
With FID, clients have the option to save on holding less stock, but still reducing the risk of stock outs with regular deliveries from the OPIL warehouse. This facility is particularly useful for aftermarket accessories.
By co-ordinating with clients, OPIL can optimise packaging and reduce shipping costs through a tailored FOB solution. The majority of products sourced by OPIL are shipped FOB directly, with payment methods most commonly LC or TT.
The company is currently exploring the option of a bonded warehouse in Asia so that retailers only have to draw on the stock they want, when they want it. This project is currently being developed and will be in operation in the future.
Merchandising*, branding, packaging, design, labelling
OPIL has the facilities, experience and resources - including a specialised merchandise management contract company - to provide turnkey marketing solutions for retailers.
The company's in-house marketing and design team - with more than ten years experience in private label branding - works with clients to develop attractive names, packaging, logos and other branding concepts for private label products.
Merchandise Management assists with managing the stock range and performing any other merchandising tasks required, including regular store visits, promotions and in-store product labelling.
*Services such as merchandising, after sales service back up, warehousing and FID delivery are only available in selected markets. Please discuss your requirements with OPIL.
