As a seasoned engineer who spent a decade in France, I took a leap of faith and ventured into China in 2021 to explore the dynamic world of IOT (Internet of Things). Guided by my passion for electronics and embedded systems, I founded my own company in Ningbo, providing technical services in prototype development and industrialization. Little did I know that this decision would open the doors to an extraordinary business ecosystem, brimming with innovation and efficiency.
My French clients often marvel at the speed of business operations in China. The agility with which things are accomplished here is something they never imagined back in France. Gone are the days of waiting for email replies; in China, communication is direct, immediate, and action-oriented. Our penchant for instant chat and phone calls enables us to make things happen swiftly, boosting productivity and client satisfaction.
Settling in Ningbo, a city abundant with entrepreneurial spirits and manufacturing facilities, I was captivated by the sheer number of Chinese suppliers. The Yangzi Economic Zone, encompassing Shanghai, Jiangsu, and Zhejiang, serves as a powerhouse in the global economy, and being part of this economic juggernaut is both awe-inspiring and rewarding.
At the heart of China’s efficiency lies a well-coordinated ecosystem comprising diverse factories, motivated individuals, and robust logistics infrastructure. Our technical services firm collaborates with a plethora of manufacturers, including EMS for electronics boards production, plastic injection/mold factories, metal processing units, and more. This wide array of partners allows us to deliver comprehensive solutions to our clients.
As an engineer at heart, I take great pleasure in visiting these factories, immersing myself in their production processes, and understanding the intricacies of their work. The opportunities for learning and gaining insights into various industries are unparalleled, providing me with a unique perspective on product development and industrialization.
The contrast between my experiences in France and the vibrant ecosystem in China is astonishing. The synergy of diverse factories, motivated individuals, and excellent logistics infrastructure fosters an environment where innovation thrives and projects flourish. While the pace can be tiring at times, the fulfillment of seeing our clients’ ideas materialize makes every effort worthwhile.
