Fortune 100 Glass Manufacturer

Fonssino built and operate a 2000sqm facility to produce packaging materials for the customer manufacturing plants in Asia




Fonssino was established in 2007 to support our clients seeking to capture benefits from sourcing globally, primarily China and other Asian countries, but also including Latin America and Eastern Europe.

While many organisations buy from global sources, this is frequently done through trading companies and other intermediaries with clients having limited skills and resources to go direct to sources of supply. Our global sourcing services are designed to get clients closer to the actual source of supply especially in low-cost countries (LCCS), providing clients the ability to effectively select and manage these suppliers to reduce their cost and supply risk., achieved through the deployment of our capabilities that include:

  • Access to leading edge supply market knowledge through our team of deep subject matter experts in China and other low cost countries sourcing

  • Access to strategic sourcing capability close to potential suppliers where our multilingual team can conduct a robust sourcing process that aligns with client’s processes to drive benefits

  • Access to our extensive supply chain management skills, including logistics planning and management, quality management and supplier relationship management

We are not a trading business. Where requested we ‘pull’ product into the market based on specific client orders & requests, not ‘push’ product into the market to sell at the lowest cost. We provide bespoke, flexible solutions for our clients which can incorporate elements of both project-based services and managed services, depending on the desired needs.

Whatever your challenge, speak to one of our team today to find out how we can help.
