We know we can source it.    

 Vessel begins the process of sourcing partner manufacturers through a careful and extensive vetting process. Vetting new manufacturing partners requires deep scrutiny to ensure legitimacy and credibility. Quality of product is a top priority and developing a strong and trusted manufacturing relationship is critical as you scale. We have established an office in Southeast Asia to enable direct contact with our manufacturers and actively check and review the qualifications and certifications of their products.

Turnkey product sourcing from concept to delivery for scale.  

This is hard... let us handle it.

Vessel is a one-stop solution to help you bridge the gap between R&D and commercial-scale manufacturing to help you quickly and reliably distribute your product to meet increased demand. Vessel maintains relationships with manufacturing partners in the U.S. and Asia. Among the many benefits of offshoring or outsourcing manufacturers; reduction of cost, broader market options, and tax benefits take precedence. 

Navigating ever-changing international relationships, manufacturing, product sourcing, customs rates and transit times, freight, and direct distribution are extremely complex. Vessel partners with buyers to manage imports and deliver supplies confidently, without worry of price gouging, lack of compliance, fraud, or other arduous factors.

Our global manufacturing and distribution channel includes a strategic sourcing division and on-staff MD located in the Philippines. We have manufacturing partners located in the U.S., Canada, Europe and all major Asian markets.
