Hong Kong MIGHTY-QUATRE As we say at stimulo, “If you want to avoid problems in the product development, you’d better stay close to the factory “. On the computer perhaps everything looks correct, but you will never be 100% sure untill you make it real. That is even more dramatic when you talk about China. That’s why stimulo has intensified its activities there in the past recent years. Just to stay next to our clients and their production facilities, helping them “in situ” when problems arise.
