Access trouble-free metal OEM manufacturing and fabrication in China
Capacity exists in our Ningbo factory to manufacture with like-minded business from around the globe.
China may be the contract manufacturing epicentre of the world, but to the uninitiated it can prove to be a wild frontier when it comes to problem solving the supporting aspects of manufacturing offshore. This website offers insight into the contract manufacturing and engineering capabilities we offer at the centre of the world’s greatest manufacturing hub: China.
Why we are different to most contract manufacturers, OEM’s and trading houses.
Our Australian owned and operated factory in Ningbo China was established in 2011. Leda Security Products has been manufacturing its own metal fabrication products, in particular bicycle racks and bollards, since 1995. Our manufacturing capabilities quickly expanded to more complex products such as shelters, dock lifts and gate components and we now manufacture over 1200 product lines.
By manufacturing with us you will benefit from Leda’s many years of on-the-ground experience as an Australian contract manufacturer operating in China.
As such our communication with you will be leagues in front of other manufacturers who claim to ‘speak good English’. Good systems of communication, written as well as spoken, are vital to maintaining healthy profit margins and extracting the benefits of engaging Chinese skilled labour. Leda has installed the bilingual ERP software system King-Dee, the largest in China. All our Bills of Materials are based on this system so we can track material and supplier shipments for batches, if required.

Why Partner with Leda for your Offshore Manufacturing?
Ability to offer short runs
Across the sea of Chinese manufacturers, most will only be interested in mass production. An important advantage to using Leda is we are able to offer you initial shorter production runs – with a view to building a long term relationship with you. Plus we appreciate you cannot always fill a container with your first order.
Speed of delivery
Leda is located in Ningbo, on the doorstep of China’s second busiest port. The coastal location means it is perfectly situated to export globally with direct container shipping to most parts of the world. The region in general is heavily industrialised so offers an extensive range of suppliers from which we can draw materials or product. Our factory and offices are 60 minutes drive from the port which avoids significant internal road freight and shortens lead times. The city of Ningbo is approximately 3 hours drive south of Shanghai.
Assurance of quality
The Leda Perimeter Security Products and Securabike brands (1,200 products) have been built on high standards of manufacturing coming out of our Australian factory. To successfully expand our manufacturing to China in 2011 required our Ningbo factory achieve the pedigree of quality demand by our brands. For like minded businesses this presents an opportunity to access cost efficient production of non-standard parts in Steel, Aluminium and Stainless by Chinese tradespeople trained in high standards of workmanship. Our manufacturing capabilities include metal parts, machining components, welding parts, stampings, sheet metal parts and more.
Value adding with Secondary Processes
Leda can also package your product, fully branded, ready for resale. Years of experience packing our own products carefully for shipment overseas means you products will arrive in pristine condition. We can also provide user / installation manuals and other technical services.
Value adding with Engineering Services
You may already have your product design ready to go, in which case Leda may be your ideal fit for Contract Manufacturing. Supporting this we also offer Design and Engineering Services to update or enhance your production. The design software we use is predominantly Solidworks. The Leda team is also skilled with Inventor and can accept files as PDF, JPG, and in most 3D drawing formats.
