We can help you build a strong, reliable distributor network to maximize your sales in Asia.
Finding the right medical distributors in Asia can be a difficult process. Knowing the right questions to ask and performing extensive due diligence are crucial to finding the most qualified and trustworthy Asian distributors.
With our deep industry knowledge and strong on-the-ground presence through our four Asia offices and affiliates located throughout the continent, Pacific Bridge Medical can assist you in your distributor search by identifying and qualifying the best distributors for your medical company’s products.
You should not sign contracts with medical device distributors in Asia until you have conducted a thorough analysis of the success rate of their past medical sales. In order to find the most suitable distributors in each specific Asian market, targeted questions are necessary, such as the following:
- Does the potential distributor sell synergistic products?
- Does the distributor have strong sales and marketing personnel?
- Do they have a qualified in-house regulatory team to help with product registration?
- Can you speak the distributor’s local Asian language or is their English sufficient to communicate?
- Does the potential Asian medical distributor understand the notion of “conflict of interest”?
