Hey,
At the beginning, sorry if there a some mistakes in my text (learning English and trying to text without translater! ;) ).

So let’s Beginn…
I created a product concept and want to start my own company. Before going all in I want some test examples, to do some Markt research.
So now I’m searching for a manufacturer, that can produce my product. My question: How do I find a suitable producer/ supplier?
I started researching on online forums and AliBaba (yes I know there is a lot of crap, but I think if you consistently check the quality there are some good suppliers).

Thank you for sharing your informations and experience. :)

Kind regards,
Lukas

Hi Lukas- Welcome to the forum.

The answer will totally depend on what *type* of product it is.
You don't need to tell us your idea, but... what is the larger market/product category?

Hey, thanks for your answer. bags and suitcases. (I don’t want to sell normal suitcases, but have some ideas to improve this product, so I need a manufacture that would be able to react to my wants and needs).

Hi Lukas

This depends on many other variables as well

1. Your Serving market (and its trade relationships with the manufacturing market) and its proximity to your manufacturing market.
2. Manufacturers Capability and Capacity
3. Development cost and lead time.
4. Delivery terms and lead time
5. Overall Sourcing budget

based on this, you can look up on the internet, not sure if I can post any links of websites on this forum !!
