How To Judge A Company

Home > How To Judge A Company




If you meet a company on an exhibition, you get their company and product information through communications, and you find everything is happy, then the risk of doing business with them is much smaller than wiring money to a company you get from the internet. 


If all the companies you get are from the internet, how to judge them?


Tip 1:  Look at their websites to see the products range, choosing the narrow & deep one other than the wide & skin deep one. 


There are a lot of "metal mesh" companies, but the fact is: the metal mesh are a huge industry, it covers hundreds kinds of products and hundreds of specifications for each product.  if a company survives very well, they must be good at some specific product and focus on it.   For example: you are looking for business partner who can provide the 0.7mm x 3mm hole at 5mm pitch perforated metal with galvanized steel, you did some searching and it looks thousands companies say they can do it.  Our suggestion is: Choosing the ones introducing perforated metal and related products only, quitting those which introducing not only perforated metal, but also a lot of unrelated products such as bird cage, chicken wire, sun shade netting, binding wire etc.  The website of a company shows some of their business ways, if it is not focusing on perforated metal too much, it is most likely they are not doing perforated metal very well.



TIP 2: Look at their websites to see how many mistakes there are, and how many images are copied from other websites. 


There are a lot of mistakes on the websites of “metal mesh” companies.  They name a hexagonal shaped hole perforated metal image “round hole perforated metal”, they give wrong specifications for a perforated metal product, and they copy a lot of perforated metal coil image from our website. 


The reasons for them to tolerate these mistakes are:


There is only one or two persons in that company, and they do not have enough staff to write down the correct information.


This is just their habits, as they treat everything like this, including your order.


That company is not a company; they register and disappear very quickly.


TIP 3: Call their phone number to see if you are contacting a real person.


In case you can not make a visit to the company, it is very necessary to make a phone call to the company, talk to the person that you have sent an inquiry of perforated aluminium for facade purpose, or a perforated galvanized steel for ceiling purpose, and discuss the other elements you described in the email.   In this way  you will make sure whether  you are contacting a real person. 


TIP 4: See how quickly and how professionally they reply.


Good companies can always reply to you very quickly in a very professional way.  Considering the time difference, a good company may reply to you within 24 hours or even shorter, but not on weekends.  They know what are important in your inquiry or if they handle your job, they may need to clarify some issues which are not very clear in your inquiry.   That is much better than a company that gives you a quotation based on incomplete information, which is meaningless.


TIP 5: Tell them that you may pay for samples, ask for their bank details to see if it is different from the one you are contacting.


Some metal mesh companies are using different beneficiary names when you want to pay.  It is very dangerous to pay to a different company name or to a personal bank account. Even if you finally decide not to pay, it is not cheating.   It is only a way of preventing you from fraud.   


TIP 6: Ask for their customer reference.


This can always test whether a company is experienced in the product you are looking for.
