From our last article, we have made it sure that all our buyers are informed that they have multiple online tools at their disposal to make their sourcing life easier. For this week’s series, we’re featuring two of Global Sources Verified Suppliers who are keeping up the good work in making sure they are still running their business despite the COVID-19 situation because in this fast-paced world — sourcing never sleeps.
Helping to contain the pandemic
Manufacturing industries across China temporarily halted operations in response to the government’s call to restrict movement and prevent further contagion. The radical strategy created supply chain issues locally and in markets dependent on these factories, but it has been working as the spread has slowed and production activities have started picking up.
At this early stage of recovery, a number of suppliers continue to support government efforts to revitalize the economy and end the current crisis situation. They are allocating resources to restock the local market, especially of much-needed supplies, while assuring customers elsewhere that orders will be expedited once normalcy is fully restored. Within the origin of the pandemic, Suppliers are starting to begin manufacturing and turn on production lines to support the call from the Chinese government to fight COVID-19.
Hubei Qianjiang Kingphar Medical Material Co. Ltd is pitching in by restarting its production of masks but directing its output initially to fill the domestic requirement. The maker, which specializes in disposable wound care and surgical dressing products, owns a 51,000sqm facility equipped with 50 production lines. It is capable of shipping more than 800 40-foot containers every month.
Wuhan-based JoinTown Medical Devices Group Co. Ltd, a subsidiary of the JoinTown Pharmaceutical Group, is heeding the call, being also a key player in logistics and distribution in the local medical industry. It is involved in the manufacture of hospital and home-use medical equipment, IVD devices, low- and high-value medical consummables, and reproductive health products.
