Sourcing technical products, production set up and interim management in China


Bonatec BV is the private management company of Ruud Bosman and was founded in 1987 as a development and production company of marine equipment, especially marine diesel generators. Over the years Bonatec BV participated in joint ventures and generated several new businesses. I managed that businesses as a director.

Since 2004 the success of the companies I worked for as a director was partly based on sourcing from China and subcontracting the manufacturing of parts and products to China.

Januari 2012 I stopped working as a director for the companies mentioned above and since then I am available through Bonatec BV as a consultant or interim manager for sourcing projects, project management (R&D, production set-up) both in the Netherlands and in China.  

I did build up a network of technical companies and support (legal and otherwise) in China. I have excellent communication skills in Chinese cultural setting and I am well respected by my business partners in China. (Guanxi)

Over the years I visited more than 250 companies and more than fifty cities in China; recently I visited the 5 largest engine manufacturing companies in China to fulfil a outsourcing assignment.

I contributed to trainings, books and interviews on sourcing and negotiating in China.
