Tariff-savvy sourcing of quality wood components
We have been sourcing wood components from suppliers in China, Taiwan and Vietnam for 40+ years, ensuring that we meet the specific and evolving needs of our customers. Whether it’s a tariff-free price you are after, a specific wood species or a particular colour to be matched, we can supply the quality wood components you need. Our sources offer formaldehyde-free products and top coatings that are Low-VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) to ensure they are 100% compliant with Proposition 65, CARB laws, Toxic Substance Control Act (TSCA)- Title IV, Kitchen Cabinet Manufacturer’s Association (KCMA) standards, and where needed, other major international environmental standards on wood components including FSC compliance.
Product Specification Phase:
- We work with our customer to create drawings of the component and establish finish color, sheen, performance requirements, anticipated volume and required lead times. We then determine the best source for fabricating the part.
- An information package which may include drawings, specifications and product-comparable samples is prepared and sent for quotation.
- Once the quotation has been accepted, a sample is produced for client review.
- Revisions are made as needed and final production samples are produced for final approvals and project kick-off.
- Comtrad’s rigorous supplier approval and audit process ensures that products are delivered on time and in compliance with customer specifications, local regulations and applicable quality standards.
- Comtrad also works with respected global, third-party testing agencies for further compliance verification where required by our customers.
- Inventory availability and delivery flexibility are key to the success of most custom projects.
- Comtrad works with its customers to establish and maintain strict delivery timelines. Whether the requirement is for direct shipment or stocking programs, single purchase or inventory replenishment based on just-in-time forecasts, Comtrad can handle it all, and takes the risk out of overseas sourcing in the process.
