Reports show that: multinational groups have increased the purchase of castings in China. They will be previously in India, Eastern Europe and other countries of the parts orders to China, some buyers purchase volume than last year nearly doubled! A Fortune 500 buyer said: As their suppliers in South East Asia had a poor rate of return to work and could not guarantee normal delivery, while China's epidemic prevention was efficient and factories were producing steadily, their new projects were specified to be sourced in China.

In response to restrictions that overseas buyers were subject to China, FSC plans to edit the electronic version of the "China’s Casting Guide", which included more than 1,200 suppliers from our database, produced a bilingual version, increased the push to cover more overseas manufacturing companies, and helped them with casting sourcing. Moreover, for overseas buyers who don’t have the ability to purchase directly from the factory or cannot effectively manage their suppliers, FSC can help this type of companies to ensure the smooth domestic procurement of overseas projects through cooperation with partners to establish a supply chain management.

Time for negotiation

FSC not only has the conference, also has English and Chinese website related to castings. We will try best to help global purchasers develop new projects, optimize supply chain and also help suppliers seek new business chance, develop new market and promote these enterprises have a great development.

With the development and advancement of the times, FSC will continue to promote the development and transformation of the foundry industry and make positive contributions.
