Shadstone Limited is a privately held business with quality relationships in China and the United States. It was established to provide American manufacturers an easy entry into Chinese manufacturing & assembly.
Many large American manufacturers have been taking advantage of the lower labor and materials costs for years, however, certain barriers have made it cost ineffective for small to mid-size American manufacturers to capitalize on this new emerging manufacturing center.

What Shadstone Stands for
There are a few interpretations of the name Shadstone at the company. The best way we present it to the public is such:
“Shad” represents Shadstone as being the shadow of one’s business – we will work closely with clients in sourcing quality goods that are crucial for that business’s overall success – and yet that client’s end customer will never see or hear the Shadstone name.
“Stone” represents Shadstone as the rock, the foundation for our client’s overall profitability and success. Our performance is based on the success of our client base….as in today’s international business world, one cannot only exist to survive…but to THRIVE! Shadstone Sourcing will be the rock that you can come to rely upon.
