Answer by Adam B
Expect factories to tell you that they can build your machine even if they lack the expertise to do so. Expect the consulting firm that you hire to steer you toward the factory with which they have a close relationship, not the best factory for your job. Expect the factory to try to convince you to change your design, not properly test output, and substitute inferior materials without asking you. Expect them, if your product has any market value, to produce counterfeit merchandise while you’re not looking and sell it out of the back door.

The only way to build quality merchandise in China is to own the factory yourself.
