Background & Objectives
We are a venture-backed direct to consumer bicycle business launching in the next 6 months with an innovative product targeting the fragmented female bicycle market.
We are looking to deliver our product 99% assembled to our customers' front doors.
In our first year, our assembly will take place in Taiwan, however, we will move production to mainland China as we grow to decrease costs.
We would like to package our bicycles differently to the industry standard - which is poor quality and results in a poor customer experience.
Looking for the main point of contact at 5 factories in Taiwan and 5 factories in China capable of designing and manufacturing our packaging and to assist with initial introductions.
We would like to package the bicycles in a similar fashion to the LCD TV industry, so if you are able to locate the main players producing packaging for Samsung, LG etc, that would be ideal.
Our bicycles will RRP at £450, so the manufacturer must be capable of producing cost effective products.
Ideally, you will need to speak Chinese to make initial contact.
Happy for you to work remotely.
*The duration of the project will vary depending on wether the consultant will only do the research or also contact the factories.
