Scandic Sourcing this month celebrated its 15 years anniversary!


Scandic Sourcing was founded in Shanghai, China in 2006 by Mr. Per Linden. He, after a 21 year career in the Swedish Sandvik group, decided to use the experience he gained setting up Sandvik’s first factory in Eastern China to help other foreign companies facing the challenge with a new venture, or supplier in China.

Scandic Sourcing has specialized in factory setup, business development, supplier search projects and quality control. Scandic Sourcing has also developed the award winning Scandic Code of Conduct Program, a continuous improvement audit program for foreign companies’ Chinese suppliers.  

While most customers have been in the mechanical industry looking for setting up own production or qualifying or supporting Chinese sub-suppliers who has to be able to perform in  global supply chain, the COVID situation has led to many supplier inspection projects in a variety of industries including food production and  electronics.
