Dragon made our factory selection process much less overwhelming and gave us confidence that we found the right manufacturing partner. Given the language, logistical and cultural hurdles of working in China, it’s hard to imagine finding the right factory without Dragon leading the way.

We were initially looking at over 16 factories to work with in China, and Dragon helped us select the best factory and then build a strong relationship with them over the following year.
