Q: What do you think of China Alarm Systems products

One of my European client bought a lot of  Security Alarm Devices from us. But he required not showing “Made in China” or any Chinese words on package box or products.

Do consumers like or dislike the products (Security Alarm Devices including alarm panel, detectors, alarm repeater, alarm system) which are made in China?

I had ever posted an article on a well-known alarm forum. The article is named as “Advanced technique of intruder detectors”.  Someone replied the post and said my article is translated from Chinese and is gibberish. The gibberish is not understandable and are completely useless as far as providing any information to readers.

How do they think of the products made in China?

"Made in China" is fine as long as the technology and design is conceived in the west and there is a great deal of QC.

"I had ever..." is pure Chinglish.

Not to insult you, your intentions or your intelligence, it would greatly help Chinese manufacturers to seek the help of a native (English) speaker BEFORE committing to printing packaging and instructional manuals in English or any other foreign language.

Heck, where I live, the management spent hundreds of thousands printing brochures, banners and billboards...all with obvious English errors. Hard to gain "face" when a simple word such as "Plaza" is misspelled.

The problem of most Chinese factories is that most of them are managed top down by complete ignorant. Yeah, hard to be professional when most of the stuff you are making is coming from stolen/reverse engineered blueprints with a rough understanding of international standards, and your only real asset is the running costs duly negotiated with baijiu and some corrupted assholes.

 

So yeah, just like any other uneducated moron, dear laoban doesn't understand the concept of dealing with people who don't make a priority of him inviting them over dinner, or the size of his factories, or the raw number of employees he has, or the origin of his equipment, but just about him being reliable..

And of course, laoban doesn't understand either than introducing his company is important, that CCP-style over emphatic writing with ridiculous propaganda-style slogans like "we strive by surviving the best quality ever workforce to dedication yadee yada" is at best childish and to be honest a good proof that a whole lot of people in China made a lot of money without using any brain, and that TRANSLATION (and considered how stupid even the Chinese versions are, I'd say LOCALIZATION) is a job you outsource to a PROFESSIONAL, not a cheap student or your employee with the least shitty CET score.

 

But yeah, Chinese philosophy, "as long as it's foreign looking fucking ABC symbols, must be OK". or "As long as it's not too shitty why are you complaining, we're friends aren't we". That's called quality standard and expectations, and you just discovered what it means the hard way.

"Made in China" can certainly be OK. But you need to build a reputation. If a client in the EU wants to resell your product without the "Made in China" label, then he is most likely not in line with his local laws. 

 

Some countries allows a "Manufactured for...." label that will then leave out the actual country of origin.

I don't think that your english is that bad, take a look around in this forum you will see a lot foreigner with english worse than yours. Chinese products doesn't have good reputation in the world market (even in a 3rd world country like my home country, Indonesia). Chinese products are famous for being cheap, unreliable, and doesn't last long. My 1st motorbike was a "jialing" (idk the hanzi), it sucks so hard and broke down often and seriously overweight. Compared to my 2nd one "a second hand honda, same model, same size" that was 4 years older the jialing is a total crap.

 

Currently China do have better workforce and technology, but unfortunately most of the products are still on the low quality category. According to my experience this is why :

1. Same thing like my bike, the supplier just sucked. (Supplier fault)

2. If you have dealt with Chinese supplier before, they usually offer you different package: very cheap very low quality, medium price and quality, expensive and good, etc. Most buyer will select the cheap price low quality option because they themselves doesn't care about the quality of their product and just go for the lowest price (Buyer fault).

Having been connected to a company that manufactured part of their product in China, they had to micro-manage the production for a number of reasons, mainly for reasons for not keeping to product-spec:

 

1) The Chinese supplier substituted the paint required for a cheaper lead-based product that would have breached EU health and safety guide-lines

2) The supplier packaged the completed product in lower-quality boxes that resulted in product being damaged in transit

3) The supplier tried knocking-off cheaper versions and selling them based on the specs.

 

China has the potential to manufacture international standard  products, but many companies prefer the 'get rich quick by any means possible' attitude which makes doing business here a leap of faith.

A:Going to HK would be the best bet I reckon, especially if you were looking for a church wedding. Chinese weddings are pretty grim IMO - you go to a barren govt dept with souless officials and navigate red tape so some guy can give you a red stamp and a marriage book. You get expensive pictures taken of you both posing in places you'd never go to in everyday life that is somehow supposed to represent your wedding, then a while later it's off to a restaurant where a game show host kind of guy makes sure it's as tacky as possible while the guests eat as fast as they can so they can leave as soon as they finish eating and gave you money. Hell, I'd go to Thailand or the Philippines and get married in Paradise.   -- Stiggs
