J&Y doing business in China and worldwide

J&Y Shanghai Int'l Trading Co., Ltd. started in 2003 and received all relevant licenses for manufacturing and purchase from the Chinese government in 2004. At start date, doing business in China was already very familiar to the people starting J&Y, and the company positioned itself well with an important strategic advantage no other trading company could or wanted to offer.
From the start the financial position of J&Y has been strong, and we were able to extend our warrantee terms and conditions to include that J&Y is liable and that we include transport costs in the agreements which we use for doing business in China. For sure a unique service offered to foreign companies doing business in China. It proved to be the strategic advantage which allowed J&Y to grow ever since 2003.

At the start, the owners and management made the following statement:

  • Focus on long term cooperation with our customers and suppliers
  • Invest in the cooperation
  • Not get involved in business for which we do not have the expertise. In new business ventures, first aquire the nessecary expertise.
  • Visit our customers regurarly in their home country
  • For doing business in China, J&Y will not participate in any manufacturung company, which we use to export goods to our customers.
  • Although J&Y will be open for participation with other companies to start new business verntures, J&Y Shanghai Int'l Trading Co., Ltd. will not be participated in. Doing long term business in China needs stability.
