Why Sino?

How do we make things better?

It’s a bold claim, but not an empty one…

The best of
East & West

Sino is a unified British and Chinese owned manufacturing company with UK-based management and its own factory in Shenzhen. This makes us genuinely different, and something of a rarity.

Customers benefit from the best of British design, standards and technical support alongside cost-efficient Chinese manufacturing capabilities. It’s a winning combination that enables clients to leverage competitive advantage – but without the usual risks and challenges involved in dealing direct with Chinese manufacturers or going through a middleman.

Greater transparency, better communications & closer affinity

At any stage of a project customers can talk directly to expert engineers, either in the UK, China and our local offices in North America, Germany, France and Italy, all of whom speak English. This is much better than trying to communicate through an intermediary such as a middleman or translator – with Sino everything is much quicker, clearer and more efficient, with less risk of misunderstandings. What’s more, you are dealing with people who share your western culture, values and standards – all of which helps smooth the process, enable closer relationships and minimise delays.

Quality, capability & integrity that fills you with confidence

Our excellent project management skills, smooth integrated processes and impeccable product quality mean we’re not just a supplier, but a trusted partner – no matter how complex your project, how tight the timescales and how big the volume, we can handle it. All work is certified to ISO 9001:2015 and as members of Sedex you can be sure we’re serious about continuous improvement of ethical business practices including labour standards, health & safety, environmental and business integrity. What’s more, when you need us to give a little extra, we rise to the challenge – we’ve never left a customer unsupported – ever!

Competitive costs that give you the edge

Whilst achieving and maintaining the highest quality products and service is our top priority, it’s true that employing skilled Chinese labour and being part of the highly efficient Chinese manufacturing ecosystem enables us to be highly cost competitive.

Sino UK and Chinese product development

Better support for greater peace of mind

Because we’re a British company we are better placed to provide any sales and technical support you might need. Whether you are in the UK, Europe or North America and Canada we have a local presence and can provide on-site assistance.

Sino has supplied our safety critical products since 2014 and we consider them to be a strategic partner. Components manufactured demonstrate a skilful grasp of all manufacturing processes and product assembly. All tooling is made in-house with the process from order to approval being short and smooth.
