Not all suppliers in China can make all cannabis machines, so Kanary will make sure we have a clear understanding of what your business needs. Whether you need pre-roll assembly machines, CO2 extractors, packaging and weighing machines, or even specialty vending machines, our experts will note what you need and begin the supplier search.
Once Kanary has the specifics of the machinery you need, we begin our supplier search. Our process begins by gathering 20-50 potential suppliers that could potentially make your machinery. Then, we narrow down the field based on a number of factors, including lead times, engineering capacity, pricing, and overall quality.
Kanary will narrow down the field until we have 3-5 quality candidates selected. From there, we begin a thorough vetting process of suppliers, which includes in-person factory inspections and making sure that suppliers have all the required certifications to import. Once vetting is complete, Kanary consults with you to make a final supplier decision.
Kanary helps facilitate initial deposits paid to suppliers, and then manages factories once production begins. Our team remains on-call for issues with production, and since we have a physical presence in China, Kanary is in place to respond and resolve issues quickly. Our experts also ensure quality control processes are followed, and that no corners are cut.
After production is complete, Kanary takes the reins in managing shipping logistics. We book containers, coordinate consolidated shipping (when applicable), and make sure that your machinery is appropriately packaged to be safely shipped. Kanary monitors your sea freight shipment and helps to navigate customs issues, should they arise.
After customs is cleared, Kanary manages the final delivery of your products. Our team facilitates communication between you and your supplier to unpack, install, and calibrate your machinery so you can start using it as soon as possible.
