The French trading company distributing toys is searching for new suppliers offering coloured windmills under distribution services agreements or a partner experienced in the field of toys production and able to produce these windmills under manufacturing agreement.
The French family business has been a wholesaler of toys and articles for children for more than 20 years.
The specificity of its activity is to offer a very large range of products on themes related to history and fairy-tale world : knights, vikings, princes, princesses, kings, queens, castles, dragons, unicorns, etc.
The products are preferably made of noble and natural materials such as wood, leather, hessian, string.
Its customers (distributors, retailers, shops in museums, castles or abbeys, etc.) are mainly French, but the company plans to expand its activity abroad in the coming months.
Its products include a range of coloured windmills for children or outdoor decoration (see attached photo).
Today the company is looking for new suppliers of windmills to expand its range. The partner will be either a company that already offers this type of product under a distribution services agreement, or a company able to manufacture this product meeting the requirements of the French company, under a manufacturing agreement.
The company needs small windmills, around 20cm / 30cm diameter because it already has suppliers for larger models.
The company is looking for a partnership with companies offering quality products and obviously all products must comply with the regulations applicable to products intended for children.
The potential partners will preferably be located in Europe or in a country close to Europe, but the company is open to any proposal.
Some of the French company's customers ask for customised products. The ability to meet this demand will be a plus.
- Type of partner sought: The windmills have to be resistant against water/rain and sun/UV.
The "handles" must be made of wood.
Classic rainbow-coloured windmills are clearly welcome.The company prefers to globally avoid dark colours, and excludes black, grey, and brown.
Assortment of different colours and designs for a same model is welcome.
The company needs small and classic windmills, around 20cm / 30cm diameter.
The company wants fully built and packaged products, ready to be delivered to customers.
- Specific area of activity of the partner: The company is interested in two types of partners:
1 - The partner can ideally be a manufacturer or supplier of windmills and the partners will sign a distribution services agreement.
Information on prices, minimum order quantity, delivery time and method of payment will be welcome during the initial contacts.
2- The partner is a manufacturer experienced in the toys production able to meet the needs of the French company. In this case, a manufacturing agreement will be proposed. The manufacturer will have to produce samples before a cooperation can be agreed upon.
In both cases, the products must meet the technical requirements described above regarding colours, materials and dimensions, and the ability to customise some of the products will be a plus.
The company has over 20 years of experience and is already working with foreign suppliers.
The company has a very good network of B2B customers and plans to expand internationally.
