How to use creativity when negotiating with Chinese furniture & construction hardware suppliers

2017-11-12T17:14:53+00:00 November 12th, 2017|

To a certain extent, negotiating is a daily part of almost everyone’s job. You don’t have to work exclusively in that field or manage business operations worth several millions of euros in order to have to face all sorts of negotiations. But at IBMH, one thing is clear: to know how to use creativity when negotiating with Chinese furniture & construction hardware suppliers is part of our success. We share our vision to offer you more profitable solutions, ones that go beyond “I win, you lose” or “we both win, but both lose something”. Why can’t we all win? Many researchers point to a third route when looking for solutions in a negotiation, much more ambitious but also with better results: the creative route, in other words, thinking beyond the obvious solutions. Gregorio Billikopf of the University of California, Davis, explains why it is important to look beyond the first solution [...]

Featured Product: Telescopic and Recessed Plugs managed in China

2019-01-21T12:40:31+00:00 November 1st, 2017|

  Aesthetics and practicality at home are essential elements for consumers. Very often the requests for interior decoration are to get an "attractive and comfortable" home or office in all aspects. And increasingly, these telescoping and recessed plugs managed in China by IBMH are ordered in the market. Kitchens are no longer just the place where food is prepared, they are meeting places during the preparation of food. Halls increasingly share space with kitchens, and this decorative novelty implies a greater importance for the details. Likewise, offices are linked more and more to the philosophy of the company and therefore the furniture aspect is measured to the millimeter. For all this, the furmiture hardware takes a value hitherto unthinkable. Therefore, they are not only functional elements, they are an integral part of interior design. Hidden and practical It was not so long ago that the placement of plugs in homes [...]

Featured product: Import adjustable folding table legs from China

2017-10-18T11:00:59+00:00 October 18th, 2017|

Importing quality height adjustable folding table legs with IBMH is easy. The table hardware that we recommend for import from China is generally of higher quality than the furniture hardware that other importers of this type of product usually recommend. The products that IBMH purchases from manufacturers in China on behalf of its customers have upgraded technical features, which means that they are more stable and durable. Why import adjustable folding table legs Because smaller and smaller homes are being built, we need to be more resourceful in finding new ways to save space. The reality is that today's construction systems build homes that have smaller rooms, which means that we tend to have space problems. For this reason, tables that can be folded easily and stored when not in use are clearly valuable for freeing up space and giving a home more usable space. Height adjustable folding table legs [...]

Furniture and construction hardware factories and Beijing’s sky: the skies are clearing up and we’re taking stock.

2017-10-17T10:00:37+00:00 October 17th, 2017|

Beijing has been fighting its smog problem for years, but in recent months the government has increased its efforts to reduce the levels of particulate matter (PM) in the city’s atmosphere. Beijing’s smog has been a major, long-standing problem for its residents, but this problem also affects China and the rest of the world. This year, China's prime minister assured the international community that China would fulfil its commitment to climate change and that it would work with the European Union to comply with the Paris Agreement. What is the connection between furniture and construction hardware factories and Beijing's sky? Unfortunately, furniture and constrution hardware factories and Beijing's sky have long been at odds with each other. Most of the factories use coal furnaces, which leads to high levels of pollution. Because of this, hardware factories, as well as cardboard factories, have been subject to government regulation, and the prices [...]
