Import FRP Composites
From China With Confidence

CSS' Composites Overseas Sourcing Assistance services include managing China vendor communications, tooling design & development, composite sample design & development, production line qualifications, Product Specifications, Quality Specification development, Purchase Order placement, production scheduling, production troubleshooting and problem resolutions, and shipment logistics to ensure accurate and on-time deliveries.

Our sourcing services support procurement of new composite products as well as qualification of alternate suppliers for greater landed cost savings or to resolve recurring production problems.

In the case of new products, CSS' Composites Product Development Support services are available to refine rough composite concepts and prototypes prior to going overseas.

All composite designs are reviewed for ease of manufacture overseas and the effective control quality. Frequently, CSS will recommend material and/or design changes for greater production efficiency, better quality control, or to reduce manufacturing cost.

Fiberglass and Carbon Fiber
Composite Shaft Production

China composite manufacturers use table rolling over rigid mandrels or Bladder Inflation Molding to produce hollow composite structures such as arrow shafts, push rods, paddle shafts, golf shafts, ski poles, canes, booms, posts, armatures, bicycle frames, bats, handles, wheelchair frame members, and other challenging shapes.
