Vietnam is arguably the second-best country to source products behind China. With recent changes in American trade policy, Vietnam is becoming even more attractive to buyers. Vietnam is a great alternative to Chinese manufacturing and already well established in its own right as a manufacturing powerhouse. While Vietnam is still up and coming it helps to think of Vietnam as a scrappy, aggressive and promising supplier vs apposed to the massive corporate behemoth, China.
Starting in 2018 Dragon Hunter moved some high tech electronics product from China to Hanoi including the SMT work. In addition we have moved many of our soft goods products.
