WeProd, defined as Production as a Service, is a French owned manufacturing startup directly located in one of the industrial areas of Shenzhen. WeProd is changing the way the production and supply chain of hardware products are done in China.
We help hardware overseas startups, SME and well established companies to handle their manufacturing and sourcing activities in China by offering pragmatic and hands-on supports.
Moreover, at WeProd, we have our own assembly workshop, a lab (with 3D printer and electronic equipments) and a "dirty room" to allow prototype building, pre-production run and full mass production. The "dirty room" is meant to be the room we can do metal work like welding, lathing, drilling, polishing.
To make thing easy, we have plenty of spaces and desks, so our clients come over for few days to few weeks to work within WeProd facility on their hardware product, have meeting with suppliers, work with us like their own office in Shenzhen. No need to be near by the electronic market of Hua Qiang Bei Shenzhen, we use TaoBao to find the components and they will be delivered within a day so huge gain of time instead of hunting and bargaining the components for days.
We know that starting a new hardware product is headache and many last minute changes, so WeProd works as a flexible manufacturing system to react and change quickly according to customers' needs at Shenzhen speed.

How do we ensure your Intellectual Property?
We know that keeping intellectual property safe is a long and difficult battle. WeProd introduces another line of defense by splitting the entire supply chain and keeping the final assembly, customization, packaging and quality in house. WeProd is equipped with its own assembly workshop so your product can be confidentially assembled in our facilities. Splitting the supply chain allows different manufactures to produce different parts, so no supplier knows what the final product is.
