Here I take the time to write down a bit of past experience before ending up with ESSE-OUTDOOR GEAR Ltd in Xiamen. It all started in 2009 in Shanghai, we set up our buying office (Alya Ltd) where we developed 2x collections per product range:
The company was run for 3 years by 2x young and hard-working entrepreneurs (E. SER, P. PINEL) who enjoyed living in such a dynamic business environment with daily challenges. This company did achieve an incredible step within 2 years’ time by reaching a financially stable level thanks to our key customers that are still here more than 10 years later. In 2012 this amazing adventure took the end for the sourcing of general furniture sourcing, it is then the official date of the company and brand launch of the company (ESSE OUTDOOR GEAR CO LTD) run by P. PINEL.
ESSE only focuses on camping product development to raise its level of competence and expertise in this particular field or industry. ESSE remains today an OEM supplier for our customers (retailers, importers, manufacturers, online stores). We came up with multiple tents worldwide easily recognized and the creation of new models following requirements from our customers. Our team of designers can help you to realize in time your outdoor product range or help you realize unique and innovative collections fitting the requirements of your market.
Our ESSE product ranges are distinguished in 2x categories:

Sign Up for special deal and new product annoucements
The claim is part of the business but we tend to limit the return ratio of our products.
(On average we are below 0.5% * for our season 2018/2019)
*Total cost items claimed/total valued items shipped) First our production sample has to be signed off and follow 100% latest amendments list (if any).
Secondly, we send to the factory our quality supervisors to follow up on each production step (cutting, printing, sewing, assembly, packing) as well as reviewing prior or latest amendments list.
At last, customers receive a Pre-Shipment Inspection (P.S.I) with all series of tests done on finished products (report on average 60 to70 pages of photos, shipping marks, product display and test each feature of our product).
Loading only after PSI approved from both parts (ESSE & Client).
Well, at first yes I fully agree with you. Fewer middlemen the better. One partner is already one too many you might think too!
On the other hand, it is just a question of how much you save and what do you get in return.
You want quality and focus on your sales, in ESSE we take great care of your order and we do have strict quality requirements before a loading approval, we do not cut corners here with our quality procedures. Never.
More than 10 years of experience in tent and outdoor gear product development.

You deal with multiple suppliers accounts for your diverse range, here it is our job to maintain a consistency in your branded product range (logo, shipping marks, same brand features, etc)
You want to combine several MOQ Skus, find the most cost-effective shipment, here it is our expertise to combine several vendors merchandises; store in our warehouse allowing several portion shipments from one location).
You want to compare pricing from several vendors, here is it our daily routine by dealing with canvas and polyester mills in direct and compare detailed fabric quoted. (Same canvas? hmmm, Same ratio cotton /polyester? Same finish ? Same coating process ? Same components ?)
