TAIPEI, Taiwan - March 11, 2020 - PRLog -- Recently, we have received many project inquiries looking at the possibility of moving production (either partially or entirely) from current suppliers in China to new ones in Taiwan, due to both the ongoing US-China trade war and coronavirus fears. In order to avoid the tariffs on goods for the US market, companies can move just the production targeted to meet their US demand. In many cases, this can avoid a 25% tariff cost while resulting in a minimal (<5%) increase in costs.  For those whose primary market is the US, or who have concerns regarding supply stability due to the coronavirus, moving their entire production to Taiwan becomes an attractive option, especially if managing two production locations can be challenging/inefficient.  Having a production option in Taiwan can also provide supply stability in case of other unforeseen risks or trade war escalations.
Past Projects Experience
One such project inquiry came from a well-established hardware startup company whose area of focus was geolocation survey. They were manufacturing in China and shipping to thousands of customers globally, many of them in the US. They reached out to us for help in moving production to Taiwan to avoid the US import tax. For their particular case, it was not enough to move final product assembly out of China, the PCBA manufacturing had to move as well.  We matched them with a quality supplier who was able to do both the SMT and product assembly while procuring all their required components with a minimal increase in cost.  The entire process took under 3 months.

Things to Consider When Moving Production to Taiwan
Based on our experiences, below are some tips when considering moving your production from China to Taiwan:
(1) Level of assembly
(4)Material consignment
(5)Assembly flow
Moving your production to a new location may seem like a daunting task, but it could result in reduced costs and added supply stability that could make or break a product.  If you're interested to explore this option and don't know where to start, we here at are happy to help get you started.
