I have come to the Autumn Lighting Fair for the first time to look for reliable suppliers of aluminium die-cast housings. So far, I have identified two potential suppliers from the Chinese mainland. I’ll check their samples and ask them to change their samples according to my specifications. If their quality is good, I’ll buy more than US$7 million worth of aluminium die-cast housings.
