Yesterday JiemingChen told the reporter of Southern Metropolis Daily, after he participated in CantonFair in April of 2010, some clients went to negociate the cooperation projectof 2012 London Olympics, among them there was a “mysterious” client who keepedin close touch with him in order to promote the project. In September of thatyear the client officially committed the third party to verify Zhanhong factoryand the verification items included production capacity, quality control,social responsibility etc, after two months the factory smoothly passed the factoryinspection.
“After factoryinspection, they began to undertake the production of the promotion giftsrelated to London Olympics and selling products. But the buyer didn’t tell usthat our products are used for official lanyards of delegations.” Jieming Chenrecalled. In March of this year the buyer began to provide the initial designdrawing, and then after several times of modification with the factory, thebuyer confirmed the design drawing hastily until the beginning of April.
The factory had everprovided lanyards for Athens Olympic Games
Jieming Chen said,the total production time that the buyer permitted for the factory was reallyless than one month, at that time they didn’t know the order was fordelegations of London Olympic Games, the client only said the order was veryvery important and the quality must meet the requirements exactly, nopermitting a little of heavy metals and carcinogens. Each product passed stricttest. “Their staff moved and lived in the nearby factory, they must verifyevery process”.
“Striving for 20working days continously, we finally finished the task of the client on time.” JiemingChen recalled. “ On the delivery date the client felt very satisfied, hethought it’s incredible to finish the task with such high quality within suchshort delivery time. The client insisted to invite all the staff who wereresponsible for the order to dinner for celebration, but he didn’t reveal theusage of the product.”
Until the eve of openingceremony of London Olympic Games, Jieming Chen learned by MicroBlog that thelanyards manufactured by their factory were the passing lanyards ofdelegations, official staff and reporters. According to Jieming Chen, Zhanhongfactory had produced 700 thousand of lanyards totally, after investigation, helearned 550 thousand of lanyards were for Olympic Games specially, 150 thousandof lanyards were for the Paralympics.
