A friend in China

Consultancy &
Factory Assesment


For services specific to your business or assistance with an endeavour already in progress, at Linkeight we work with your company on a one-to-one basis.

Our extensive background in China has highlighted the many complexities and frustrations New Zealand businesses have when trying to engage with offshore manufacturers. Quite simply, it has been too difficult. It is precisely these circumstances that sparked the conception of Linkeight.

We can be your eyes and ears on the ground in China for factory selection, quality assurance assessment or general Chinese communications.

If you are finding difficulties with your current Chinese endeavours,
let’s talk and we will see where we can be of help.

Our consultant rates vary significantly and are influenced by a wide range of factors. Set out below is a summary of some of the key considerations and influences.

  • Simple daily rate
    A daily rate is agreed based on the scope of the assignment and an estimated total number of days for completion are agreed. Reasonable expenses are reimbursed at cost in addition to the basic daily rate.
  • Fixed price
    A fixed price for successful completion of clearly specified deliverables maybe offered depending on the scope of work and an end date is agreed.
  • Time and Materials basis
    An agreed hourly rate is entered into based on personnel experience and any related expenses incurred, outsourced supplies or subcontracted services are charged to the client at cost.
