Thirteen Steps to Manufacturing in China
by Palgrave Macmillan
Recently, manufacturing has become a global and complex industry, China being one of the major players.
In Thirteen Steps to Manufacturing in China: The Definitive Guide to Opening a Plant, From Site Location to Plant Start Up author Bruce Mitchell defines the methodology for establishing a manufacturing operation in China.
A comprehensive guide book, it includes the advantages and disadvantages of manufacturing in China, the specific steps to follow and prepares the reader for spending time in China. It identifies the prerequisites – where to locate, other companies’ experiences, environmental requirements, utility costs, procedures for establishing a foreign investment company and much more. It then provides the “how to” for sourcing Chinese equipment, importing used or new equipment and building construction from Design Institutes to building permit through construction and the Grand Opening.
Mitchell’s thirteen step process offers a clear path to avoiding drawbacks when manufacturing in another country.
Bruce Mitchell, the senior engineering executive for his company, oversees all capital projects associated with strategic business growth, production capacity maximization, plant expansions, engineering and environmental initiatives in the United States and Asia. In this capacity he has implemented multi-million dollar projects establishing global facilities and manufacturing equipment installations.
In 2004 he was assigned project manager for his company's Asian manufacturing expansion. His responsibilities included all aspects of the project - identifying and selection the location, company formation, equipment sourcing, building and infrastructure design and construction. Within two years the manufacturing facility was completed and operational.
“This book is destined to be in the briefcases of CEO's and operations executives the world over with an eye on doing business in China.”
