Allen Field Company
PO Box 3069
Farmingdale, NY 11735

Client Quote: SSI has always been sensitive to our business needs. We are a small-medium size business and needed a low cost solution to stay competitive in the market. We also needed full-time support because of the large numbers of products we offer. SSI was able to provide a dedicated U.S. based project engineer to help us and there were no hidden costs. Outsourcing to China gave us a competitive edge in price and also freed up internal resources. We were able to focus more on sales, marketing, and new product development which has opened up a lot of new opportunities. SSI made going to China easy.
