Brian moved to China in early 2012 after completing a university degree in Law & French. Haven lived with a family in rural China for the first year with little or no Mandarin he had no choice but to learn the language. He became a fluent mandarin speaker over time. This has become a necessity for Request It Ltd today. Brian is well settled in China and is married with two kids.
Brian’s knowledge and geographical understanding of how to buy the best product at the best price is exceptional. He has spent several years travelling from factory to factory, building strong relationships with expert suppliers.
Product Knowledge is everything to Brian. Understanding the materials of every product and how them materials will perform in different environments. He can deal directly with all engineers/designers as most of them only speak Mandarin. This has enabled him to become a technical expert across many product ranges.
Brian constantly has existing and new clients visit him in China for their projects. They will visit our manufacturing facilities and discuss all specifications to the last detail. This speeds up projects significantly and builds strong trusting relationships with clients.
