No, the only truly screwed up company I have dealt with here was my former employer. I now avoid shitty suppliers like the plague, and I have learned what to look out for.
What I deal in is something, where the quality is very important, and well… i have to spend my time making sure the product is perfect, as the producers have been conditioned into starting trying to make it cheap. I deal in quality, my prices are competitive, but I would rather bow out of a possible than cut corners on the quality. I will happily go in details as to why I don’t like dealing with people only shopping on price, but not here.
[quote=“Hobart”] You know the Taiwanese could make it spot on perfect, but they learned how to cut corners from the best of them, the USA. The USA is all about cutting costs and marketing with big $$$ cheap crap products as if they were the best in the world.
Most of the buyers in the USA and elsewhere just keep pushing the Taiwanese to give them a cheaper price. The quality has to give out somewhere. [/quote]
They can, if you are willing to work with them and you stress that you need a quality product.
[quote=“Hobart”]Anyway, again, I want to stress the Taiwanese could make things perfect, but they choose to get rich quick. I guess when you might be invaded any day by a million brain washed goosestepping Commies it tends to make you think about the short term not the long term!
If they were no longer threatened by the corrupt gangster thug Commies in Beijing, then things might change.[/quote]
There are producers here you can force into making top quality. Some of them are even interested in doing so, as long as you don’t push them too hard on the price at the same time. I am very often impressed by them on that count.
Kedge was a rotten apple, and while there’s a fair amount in this particular barrel, then I would like to stress that there’s a few good ones as well.
