As we at Victure Industrial Co. have expanded our business, we have reviewed opportunities with many new potential customers. In this process, we have encountered a large number of small businesses who have great product concepts, and great marketing plans, but insufficient knowledge of how to create and manage the supply chains that they need to cost effectively produce their products and support their customer requirements. Many of these small businesses also lack the financing required to scale-up production of their product(s) from the “prototype” and/or low-volume “product introduction” phases into the “mass production” phase.
Based on our observations, we saw an opportunity to provide a new service offering that would help these small businesses to establish appropriate, reliable, and cost-effective supply chains by combining our skills in supply chain management with our access to trade financing through banks and other institutions where we have well established relationships.

As of this writing, we have implemented this Supply Chain Financing Model with a handful of different customers, and the results so far have been very good for those customers as well as for Victure Industrial Co.
Given the success we have had thus far, we decided to publicize this Supply Chain Financing Model to a broader audience and to invite anyone who would like to learn more about how this Model can help them to grow their business to contact us as noted on our web site: http://victuregroup.com/contact/.
