With more than a decade's experience in the fast-moving mobile device market, Proporta combines the efficiency of a small business approach with its knowledge of volume production to bring products to market quickly and within budget.
Based in Brighton on the south-east coast of England, the Proporta design team is experienced in quickly understanding the needs of the client and producing design sketches, prototypes and product samples for rapid sign-off. Designs are then passed to our experienced manufacturing team in China to minimise production costs.
Proporta has its own production and warehousing facility in South China, giving it control over quality and lead times, as well as the ability to maintain the highest standards for employee working conditions in the industry.
With convenient access to London, buffer stock held in Brighton can be quickly shipped to clients worldwide. In addition to its own manufacturing facility, Proporta has excellent contacts in China and Hong Kong and is, when needed, able to draw on the help and extra manufacturing capacity of trusted external suppliers with proven track records. Proporta works with leading London intellectual property lawyers McDermott Will & Emery to offer world-class IP protection (patenting, design right protection, trade marking).
Proporta is happy to work with low volume orders (often imposing no MOQ) as well as high volume orders – a flexibility not found in most suppliers, who can be slow to react and sometimes require large, guaranteed orders to begin production. Proporta is familiar with the strict Non Disclosure Agreements and industry-leading environmental requirements of partners such as Navman, Ted Baker and Sony (whose 'green book' is far more strict than any current EU requirements).
- Rapid production with minimum time to market
- Shipping from our warehouses in the UK or China/Hong Kong
- Contemporary packaging to our own design or to your requirements
- Experience – Proporta retails more than a thousand products with new releases every week
- Compliance with EU and UK legislation on packaging, materials and electrical safety
Proporta is experienced in manufacturing in a wide range of materials including leather, silicone, cordura, aluminium, polycarbonate and neoprene. We can also produce and brand electronic items such as batteries, cables and headphones.
Guy Monson, Director – Proporta
On 28th February, Sony UK contacted Proporta to discuss the possibility of making a promotional case linked with the new Spiderman film, due for release on the 4th May. The following day, Proporta had sent Sony the initial concepts for a Silicone Case – working only from information on the Sony.com website.
On 16th March, Sony supplied logos and fonts for packaging. The following day, Proporta had finished the packaging designs and sent them back to Sony for sign-off.
By 13th April, and despite a complicated sign-off procedure from Sony involving Sony Entertainment, Sony UK and Sony HQ in Tokyo, the products had been manufactured, packaged and shipped from our factory in China, arriving with Sony in good time for distribution.
“Dixons Tax Free has worked with Proporta over a number of years. Our customer profile requires constant review of hardware range and dedicated essentials. We have worked closely with Proporta to ensure we are always first to market with the latest accessories. Our store portfolio has limited storage space, therefore supply chain performance is paramount to our continued success. Proporta always deliver on time and in full and are always first to market with relevant products”
Dave Roberts, Senior Category Manager – Dixons Tax Free
“The team at Proporta are a pleasure and delight to work with. They will look at any idea with enthusiasm whilst assessing the viability and bring to the table their own ideas. This is made possible with the support of a first class, state of the art factory run by a like minded entrepreneur who thinks anything is possible.”
Donald Browne, Production Director – Ted Baker
“There's nothing like a challenging brief to weed out the exceptional suppliers from the merely great and this is exactly what happened between ourselves and Proporta. After having talked about a variety of projects for six months, Ted suddenly called upon them to deliver a very specific and detailed product offer in a very short space of time and on budget, all of which they did to the letter. They are a pleasure to work with.”
