Play the long game
Gowntown holds a special place in the history of Epic Sourcing. They were one of our first clients way back when, and we’ve been working with them ever since. We talk a lot about the benefits of building long-term relationships with key players in your supply chain, and our relationship with Gowntown perfectly captures that.
7 years ago, as Gowntown began to pick up steam, they approached us for support in tuning up their supply chain. They wanted to solidify their relationships with suppliers, put in place quality control systems, and improve the reliability of delivery times.
A stable supply chain is one that is built on solid relationships and a sourcing agent can help facilitate this. We view relationships with our clients in the same way and most have been with us for years now. This helps create a level of understanding that is hugely beneficial from a sourcing point of view as it makes the process very agile. If a client needs an order quality checked before it ships - we have a team on the ground in China that can get it done. Need to switch supplies? We can make it happen fast.
Gowntown has been steadily increasing their product offering over the years and our main focus was supporting them with this project.
“Epic Sourcing has been an incredibly reliable and professional sourcing manager for many years. Their work has enabled us to gain a considerable competitive edge”.
- Edward Keaney, Co-founder at Gowntown
When it comes to sourcing products from a low-cost region like China, every business has different needs. For Gowntown it didn’t make sense to get bogged down with the intricacies of sourcing. Having a dedicated sourcing manager allows you to get things done is a way that’s fast, professional, and affordable. When a sourcing related issue arises, Epic is on call.
If Gowntown needs to develop a new product we can quickly and efficiently find them a verified manufacturer that can deliver. If they need to have the quality of a product checked before it ships, we have a team on the ground in China that can get it done. Fast. Ultimately, it means they can spend more time doing what they do best; growing their business.
It has been a pleasure working with Gowntown over the years, and we are looking forward to continuing to support them with their sourcing.
Another happy client!
