Source Manufacturers in South East Asia

Let's schedule a time to have a real time conversation about manufacturing in Vietnam!

I have been advising people for 10 years. Lately, Vietnam is very popular manufacturing destination. I am scheduling, on average, two appointments per day with people investigating production in Vietnam.

I love hearing your story and guiding you as best I can depending on your needs.

Manufacturing Experts in Vietnam

I am an American based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam working for a sewing factory since 2008. I speak Vietnamese and know how to move around the country quickly and cheaply to visit factories. I have visited 75+ factories and built reliable network ranging from lawyers to tailors. I recently joined forces with Seditex that offers quality control and sourcing services in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. Fill in my contact form and I will reply back to you with a suggested action plan.
Chris and Frank solving factory issues
I started my career as a manufacturing expert in Vietnam when I moved to Ho Chi Minh city in 2008. I was born in Los Angeles and grew up in Germany – I lived on American army bases in Bad Toelz and Berlin. After graduating from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo with a Physical Science degree I worked in Switzerland to discover what I really wanted to be when I grew up. I did not imagine I would join Frank as manufacturing experts in Vietnam. I joined the Navy Nuclear Power program and served on a fast attack submarine based out of Hawaii. I love the ocean. Then I made my way to Houston to work on offshore oilrigs. Finally I settled down in Vietnam to work with Frank as manufacturing experts in Vietnam.

I will listen to your story and assess your needs. If I can help you myself then I will give you advice and contacts.

In the picture above you will see me in the black shirt and Frank in the grey t-shirt. I have lived in Vietnam since 2008 and Frank has lived here since 1995. Our specialty is apparel but we have been branching out into non-apparel since 2016. Between Frank and I, we know more than 100 factories in Vietnam which is why we call ourselves manufacturing experts in Vietnam. Frank charges $200/hour for consulting.

Frank was born in Belgium and grew up in Morocco, Congo, Chile and Belgium. He started his career by taking a quality control course in Switzerland at the age of 17. His first assignment was to oversee inspections at a textile mill in Pakistan. That is how his career in textile manufacturing got started. He has worked in India, Bangladesh, Singapore and finally settled in Vietnam where he has been building his quality control and sourcing business for 20 years. In addition to textile manufacturing he has set up factories for sewing, diamond polishing and fabric washing. He also owns a restaurant in Ho Chi Minh City. He is one of a few manufacturing experts in Vietnam.

One company I can introduce you to right away is Thai Son. My wife manages Thai Son. It's a family business. Thai Son produces men’s, women’s and children’s garments using circular knitted fabrics. They buy cotton, polyester, viscose, modal and spandex yarn, and knit it into single jersey, interlock, pique, ponte roma, rib and jacquard fabric. They dye it to match your pantone color. They follow your tech packs. They are good at both fashion and sports styles. They have flatlock machines and can make active wear well. They are also very good at engineerred stripes. Their MOQ is 1,000 pieces per style per color and they require a deposit to get started.

The second company I work for is Seditex. This is Franks' company. Seditex provides sourcing, quality control and hosting to grow your business in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar. Seditex has a 6 member sourcing team based in Ho Chi Minh city and 30 quality control staff working all over South East Asia. Learn more about Seditex services and pricing.

I am an ambassador for Vietnam and can, through my network, help you achieve your goals in Vietnam, Cambodia and Myanmar quickly.
