Finding suppliers and getting quotes has been difficult. We manufacture products and need suppliers of mechanical, electrical and plastic components from a dozen or more suppliers. For selecting our key suppliers I made 2 new rules:
1) The president must speak English well, and
2) The company must not be so large that I do not deal directly with the President.
If the company is too large, we are not an important customer. So I'm looking for suppliers with 10-100 employees. I think my chances of finding the supplier I need will improve if they are in or near Budapest, since there is a better chance of finding strong English speakers.
