An Ideal Partnership

About YS Manufacturing

YS Manufacturing was founded in 2002 by Wei Yang, a U.S.-based entrepreneur; and Wei Min, a China-based graduate engineer with more than 50 years of metal fabrication experience. They formed the company to merge the economic benefits of Chinese manufacturing with the project and logistics management advantages of an American company.

A seasoned veteran of custom engineering and metal fabrication in mainland China, Mr. Min was intimately aware of the manufacturing strengths of his native country and the significant benefits that American companies could gain from outsourcing to its factories. He also understood the challenges presented by the physical, cultural and communications gaps between the two countries and the difficulties these presented to Chinese factories trying to sell to and communicate with American companies.

On the other side of the world, Ms. Yang (a Chinese-born American citizen) saw the incredible opportunities being missed by American companies that didn’t know how to do business in her native China.

Through family connections, Mr. Min and Ms. Yang eventually combined their geographical and professional strengths to create an American-based manufacturing company with Chinese-based production facilities – a best-of-both-worlds scenario that has delivered significant benefits to all involved parties.

Specializing in Difficult-to-Machine Materials

After a few years of cross-continental outsourcing success, YS Manufacturing was approached by an American company seeking assistance producing medical devices machined from tungsten, one of the heaviest metals on the planet (80-90% of all tungsten mines are conveniently located in China).

Always up for a challenging project, the team at YS dedicated themselves to the efficient completion of this project in their Dongguan facility, finishing on time and under a budget that few could match. “I immediately recognized the opportunities in working with difficult-to-machine materials like tungsten and decided it would become our specialty,” Ms. Yang recalls.

Since that time, YS Manufacturing has become well known and respected for its capabilities working with tungsten, molybdenum, titanium and several other related pure metals and alloys, providing precision manufacturing services with the highest level of domestic service and quality.
