Engineering, Prototyping and Production


A4M group is your comprehensive partner for engineering, prototyping, and production in China and Holland. Since 2007, we have produced over 10 million products for our diverse, global client base ranging from IBM to Heineken. We handle everything from account and portfolio management to product development and realization.

No matter what type of company you are, or where you are in the world, we can improve and streamline your production process in China.  But how can we help you?  Consider these five profiles:

Are you a product sales company?

Do you need new items for your sales channels? A new partner who can realize your custom designs? A quick product launch, or seasonal items? A4M group will deliver and take your sales to the next level.

For instance, we are experienced in adding innovative elements to existing products.  Also, our design team can style your product and packaging to your target audience.  We are always interested in new products and technologies. Work with us to gain ideas and ways to extend your portfolio.

Are you a design company?

Do you love to design your own products? Do you have a knack for creative genius? But do you lack in engineering, prototyping, and production knowhow and resources? A4M group will help you take your design from napkin sketches all the way through production, packaging, and shipping.

You are worried about copy cats? We’ve got you covered there. We are experienced in protecting your IP, and we have ongoing NDA’s with prototype makers and manufacturers.

Also, we make sure your vision becomes reality. Our engineers follow our proven approach to find the right balance between design requirements and unit cost price. Through these efforts, we create a commercially viable, quality product.

Are you an entrepreneur with a great idea?

Perhaps you have a groundbreaking idea. A product that will change the world. Or your idea shines in simplicity, and you want it to be executed perfectly. Regardless of your idea, if you’re a Kickstarter or an entrepreneur, you will benefit from our expert guidance.

For instance, A4M group helps you to minimize the risk of being copied. Our experience in product design, engineering, prototyping, and production, will keep your idea safe and secure. We offer our comprehensive services from napkin sketch to shipping. And make sure you realize your dream.

Our diverse team consists of an engineer, designer, and supply chain specialist. We go above and beyond what you might expect during the design and development phase by providing production planning, cost control, quality control, TUV, lifetime testing etc.  Each team is custom made for your project to optimize skills and innovation. Here are some of our design expertise:

  • Concept visuals
  • Electronic development
  • 3D
  • Proof of principle
  • Agile prototyping
  • Ergonomics
  • Market feasibility
  • Cost feasibility

Are you a distribution company?

Distribution companies often wish the logistic of working with manufacturers in China was less complicated. Between the time difference, misunderstandings, and inconvenient traveling time, communicating your needs is challenging.

That’s why A4M group offers one communication point for your supply chain, quality assurance, planning, and shipping.  We are your eyes and ears in China, so you don’t have to worry about any unnecessary interruptions and can focus more on your own business operations.

Also, during the startup phase of our collaboration, we can evaluate and optimize your supply chain set up if need be.

Are you an EU manufacturer?

 If you’re like most EU manufacturers, you wish to cut the unit cost of your product. Maybe you’ve tried to hire manufacturers on Alibaba, but they haven’t understood your request or failed to make your product correctly.

A4M group helps you save cost and time. We enjoy taking on complicated product ideas that require more complex manufacturing. We won’t stop until we finish your product exactly how you want it.

We’ve set up a wide network of certified manufacturers who specialize in a variety of production processes. For example:

  • Injection molding
  • Over-molding
  • IML
  • Biobased Materials
  • Blow molding
  • Aluminum extrusion and CNC milling
  • Complex paper and packaging solutions
  • Metal tube frames
  • Assembly

Creativity must be nurtured, not hindered. Business must be efficient. A person can only be in one place at one time, and a person’s mind functions best when clear and focused. Product realization is a complicated process that detracts from your overall goal: to create the best product at the best price and sell it to the most people. A4M group is here to help free your mind from the unnecessary development obstacles and guide you to your production goals.
