International Concepts Unlimited Global Sourcing
 
 

International Concepts Unlimited (ICU) is a U.S. based, global sourcing company focusing on the construction materials and the display, fixture and POP markets.  ICU’s team includes staff based in Cranston, Rhode Island and in Xiamen, China.  We bring American standards to China sourcing while providing key “on the ground” oversight at Chinese factories.

ICU specializes in bringing quality goods to clients at the lowest possible cost through the use of rigid factory qualification, a competitive bidding process and elimination of distribution “middle-men”.  We match you up directly with the best factory.

 
    1. In our modern global economy, manufacturing can be around the other side of  the world from where a product is used.  Traditionally goods move from factory to brand, brand to distributor and distributor to retailer or end user.  At each step, there are additional costs of transportation, logistics and profit.

    2. At ICU, we specialize in reducing the costs of imported goods through a streamlined approach.  We act as your global procurement agent, bringing you multiple sourcing options, managing quality control, expediting orders and handling logistics from the factory to your worksite.  Typical savings range from 30 to 70%.

    3. HOW DOES THE PROCESS WORK?ICU determines which factories are best suited and obtains multiple quotations.

    4. WHAT ARE THE PAYMENT TERMS?ICU provides multiple factory quotes and discusses with you which factories to sample and ultimately buy from based on several criteria.

    5. WHAT CAN ICU SOURCE FOR YOU?The selected factory provides a detailed specification to you for approval.

CONSTRUCTION SUPPLIES
    1. ICU and its factory sources are working to provide the lowest possible product cost.  The goods are sold to you at the point of origin (FOB port - China) avoiding increases for financing your receivable.

    2. In this context, terms are very simple - 50% deposit to start production and 50% when the goods ship    (a copy of the onboard Bill of Lading is provided to you shortly after your goods are loaded onto a ship).
