From a sourcing perspective, the need for India or other low-cost countries as an alternative to China is gaining more traction.

As labor costs in China continue to spiral upwards and global political and economic pressures are compelling a relaxation of the tightly controlled valuation band of the Yuan, what was once a low-cost country is rapidly becoming less so with every passing month.

Therefore, companies from high-cost developed nations are venturing into India, among other alternate nations, seeking out suppliers to replace their current China sources or at least hedge against the pricing volatility in China and the burst of the “China Price” bubble.

We have successfully managed sourcing projects for US and European companies. The Sourcing gallery  exhibits a range of products that have been successfully sourced out of India under the leadership of our top management team.

adding value to castings

Unlike traditional b2b portals and other firms that charge as much as they can get away with, our goal is to become an extension of your own operations at a reasonable cost.

Chiketa is much more cost effective than what you would spend internally to conduct a sourcing or marketing campaign.

We maintain complete transparency in our transactions even to the extent of sharing internal financial information as and when required.

By reaching companies and markets that may not be visible on the web, we are able to get costs that are competitive globally.

Compared to standard outsourcing companies in India – Chiketa insists on being different by adding substantial value and maximizing savings.

Chiketa does not outsource the core tasks of production control and quality assurance!!!

Our Lean – Six Sigma background makes us perfectly capable and skilled at effective project management and supplier development.

Chiketa has the resources to specialize in the area of quality control and project monitoring. On-line sites like the ones below, simply do not!
