Pouches

Southern Mfg Co operates a factory in Shenzhen on the Chinese mainland to produce different kinds of pouches including this transparent pink model.

PACKAGING plays an important role in enhancing consumers' perceptions of products. Pouches, in turn, are great products in their own right. From jewellery bags to pencil cases and wine bottle holders, Hong Kong companies produce a staggering variety of pouches, with prices, services and quality all bagged up and ready to go.

Lepi China Ltd is a specialist packaging company making pouches for jewellery, watches and premium goods. These pouches are manufactured in the company's 2,500-worker factory located in Zhongshan on the Chinese mainland. Monthly production is about two million items per month.

Sales manager Pat Mo says Lepi takes pride in good customer service. "Whenever our clients have special requests, we're happy to provide professional advice to help them create exactly the style they want," he explains.

In jewellery lines, Lepi offers roll pouches and draw-string pouches. The draw-string variety comes in a number of different fabrics, including a modern-look laser dot material. Also in this range are a small draw-string pouch, model PA-S, unit priced at US$0.26, and a larger model, PA-B, unit priced at US$0.36.

More detailed in construction are Lepi's jewellery roll pouches utilizing higher-end materials such as suede, which is sourced from Taiwan and the mainland. Unit prices are US$4.60 for model CP10 and US$4.00 for model PR2.

Other materials used are leatherette paper, art paper, PU and plastic, mostly sourced from Taiwan, the US, the UK and France.

All prices are FOB Hong Kong, and the minimum order value is US$3,000. Delivery takes 35-45 days after receipt of payment.

Making traditional Oriental-style goods since 1983, Sha Cai Trading Co produces products using Chinese silk brocade. Packaging items include five different wine pouch designs, available in green, yellow, red, blue or brown.

There is no minimum order requirement and prices depend on the quantity ordered. The unit price range for wine pouches is from US$1.50-3.50 FOB Hong Kong.

Wine pouches are made in Sha Cai's 60-worker factory in Shanghai on the mainland. Production is about 500,000 items per month and delivery takes place about 30 days after order confirmation.

Mostly, orders are shipped via Hong Kong to major markets in Canada and the US. Shipments can also be arranged from Shanghai direct.

"We have some clients in Europe and plan to promote our products more in Germany," says marketing executive Henry Lee. "Our clients like to carry goods in the traditional Chinese style. They come back to us because they like our quality, service and competitive prices."

Southern Mfg Co has been in business for 10 years producing plastic packaging bags.

While many products utilize PVC, Southern has started promoting the use of PEVA. "Some of our clients want this more environmentally friendly option," explains company director Vicky Wong.

An OEM manufacturer, Southern tailor-makes products to clients' specifications using plain or coloured, and transparent, semi-clear or translucent PEVA or PVC, which is sourced from Taiwan, South Korea and Japan.

Pouches vary from cosmetic and toiletry bags to waist bags and pencil cases. "Watch-makers ask us to design special pouches for their products, and we've also designed pouches for chocolates and toys," says Wong.

Southern has a 150-worker factory in Shenzhen on the Chinese mainland. There is no specific minimum order quantity as products can be mixed. However, the company does specify a minimum order value of approximately US$4,000. Once client approval for an order has been secured, delivery generally takes about two weeks.

Southern's main market is Western Europe, with buyers also in the US, Canada and Asia.

Promotional Supplies Co Ltd makes many types of bags and pouches. In business since 1987, and manufacturing in an 18,000-square-foot factory in Zhongshan on the Chinese mainland, the company produces 10,000-20,000 items per month.

Much of the range utilizes either nylon or PVC sourced from the mainland.

Nylon products include a silver camera pouch, model M1329, and a foldable bag, model NS1482. In the PVC range are a semi-clear umbrella pouch, model M1474; a clear cosmetic pouch, model M1492; and a printed semi-clear pencil pouch, model M1503.

Account executive Peggy Cheong says Promotional Supplies has participated in many trade exhibitions in the UK, where most of its customers are. "However, we welcome enquiries from buyers the world over, " she adds.

The minimum order is 3,000-5,000 pieces, depending on the product, and delivery takes 45-60 days. Shipment is usually from Hong Kong, while a full TEU or FEU may be shipped direct from Zhongshan.

Cheong says customers appreciate Promotional Supplies' quality of both services and products. "Our products always pass client inspection tests," she affirms.
