Custom Sourcing

As a result of our extensive factory and agent relationships in the Far East, Hit is able to and in fact specializes in sourcing custom products not featured in our catalog and in working on OEM programs based on the specs that you provide. Additionally we are happy to provide overseas pricing on larger than catalog quotations on any item in our catalog providing that your client's lead in times are flexible enough to allow them to wait approximately 9 weeks for vessel shipments and 5-6 weeks for air shipments. Further, almost any item in our catalog can be customized in color or with special imprint options if done overseas. We handle all of the freight forwarding, customs brokerage and logistics as well as the financing end. Quality is also guaranteed.
