About Gabrian International (H.K.) Ltd.Helping OEMs Extend Their Supply Chain to Asia
The Value We Add:
“We are the eyes, ears, and feet on the street for North American and European manufacturers who may not have the manpower to truly establish an Asian footprint.”
Gary Teeling, General Manager
Concept2, Inc. has partnered with Gabrian International since 2007 to develop successful, long-term supply relationships with Asian manufacturers in a variety of industries – from electronics to metal fabrications to plastics. Concept2 has found the manufacturers represented by Gabrian International to afford an ideal combination of fit and value, including quality consistency, on-time delivery, customer service, and cost. Gabrian International is a highly regarded resource in the Concept2 supply chain.
What We DoGabrian has an established and well-vetted network of suppliers in the areas of metal forming, plastics, and electronics manufacturing. We use this network to assist customers who want to expand their supply chain to Asia but aren’t able to be on the ground to manage quality.
Gabrian played an instrumental role in guiding us through our first days in China and we could not have asked for a better partner at the time. Their experience and guidance in the market helped to mitigate what could have been a grueling proposition and helped make our transition into China a successful one.
Where You Can Find UsWith offices in the USA, China, and India, we are primarily a service-oriented company. But we also have equity shares in the manufacturers of our core products. Our office in the USA focuses on sales, engineering and customer service. Our China branch houses the majority of our project management team. India is home to our aluminum extrusions division.
Faria has been developing suppliers in China for about 12 years. We started working with Gabrian 7 years ago. Using their knowledge of suppliers in mainland China, they helped us find excellent high-quality manufacturers at reduced cost. We were able to find suppliers faster and did not need to hire translators to show us around. I highly recommend using Gabrian’s expertise if you are considering expanding your supply base in China.
Our Senior LeadershipWe pride ourselves on the smart, hardworking, and personable team we’ve built over the years. Here are some of the key people that make our company what it is today.

General Manager (China)
Having been in Mainland China since 1994, Gary brings a wealth of experience in management and business development to the Gabrian team.

And he works to ensure that our customers’ high expectations are always being met.
