Global manufacturing
just got easy.

Nau mai haere mai. Welcome to Linkeight.  With offices in New Zealand and Shanghai, we bring 40 years of international experience to help manufacturers compete globally through Strategic Sourcing.

We know you want to make your mark on the world but navigating an offshore production market presents a minefield of pitfalls and risks.

At Linkeight we have made it our business to link you with world-best production while we cover the detail of contract manufacturing and logistics

We take the heat, you make the gains.

Strategic Sourcing is a business and support system that manages the risk of dealing with global manufacturers so you can focus on what you do best. It is a method that focuses on sourcing quality products, and delivering them on time, at the right price, consistently.



Sourcing in China calls for a strategy. You need knowledge, persistence and commitment. It can seem daunting, we know, but understanding the landscape and getting it right, pays dividends.

At Linkeight we work with both large and small businesses to deliver clear and easy global manufacturing solutions.

Our clients who lead their supply chains tell us they prefer Linkeight because we make global procurement as easy as buying local.

What is Strategic Sourcing? And how do we make life easy for manufacturers in New Zealand, Australia and the United States of America?




As a Manufacturer your products must compete internationally and you face fierce competition from across the world.

While China presents an opportunity for a cost-effective and vast labour pool, it also allows access to engineering equipment and capacity as well as materials at a scale we simply can’t match at home.

At Linkeight we get what you are up against and we are right there with you as your local global supply partner.

With offices in China and New Zealand, you get access to our network of audited manufacturers, strict quality control processes and streamlined logistics.

Linkeight is designed to be the secret weapon that lets you get on with competing globally.

This is when goods are produced by one firm, under the label or brand of another firm. Contract manufacturers provide this service to several firms based on their own or the customers’ designs, formulas, and/or specifications.
