Interestingly enough, the Chinese source was using state-of-the-art extruders from a German manufacturer, with tech engineering support by a German engineer. The resin was sourced out of the US! Just crazy.
I knew a short term scam when I smelled one, so I ran a spread sheet on resin, shipping, extruding costs, etc., for both domestic and Chinese sourcing. It became apparent that certain "costs" were not wrapped into the original Chinese bid. But, common sense lost out to upper level decisions by a management team that turned a blind eye to longterm prospects and math.
Many US producers have led customers thru the costing models, noting freight, quality, material variations, in transit losses, increased need for documentation and communications and increased management costs plus much more. Most guys will compete on an apples to apples basis, but quotes must be detailed for many to see the problems and the spreadsheets done for the purchaser to see the differentials.
