Global Product Design. We help our clients grow and succeed through innovative, impactful design. Our integrated process and worldwide network allow us to turn great ideas into realised, profitable product solutions.

The Team


JMDA China provides European design, engineering and new product development expertise together with the benefit of on the ground support for manufacturing in China.

With our office in Shanghai we can assist clients wishing to enter the Chinese market with product and market compliance. In particular, and where applicable, the CCC (China Compliance Certificate). We support clients with all aspects of quality control and supply chain management to ensure they save time and money.

China is a large and diverse manufacturing base, where quality and price vary greatly. We are able to short circuit the sourcing process by identifying the most suitable, weeding out the poor suppliers and ensuring a good match of supplier and customer. We have considerable knowledge and experience supporting clients in China in the many aspects of product design, production processes, planning and management.

Charity Work


We are pleased to be corporate sponsors of Wooden Spoon, the children’s charity of rugby and look forward to an exciting programme of activities planned throughout the year to help raise money whilst supporting the local community.

Helping children through Wooden Spoon was an obvious choice to JMDA, with the whole team at the company’s Head Office getting behind the charity.

Wooden Spoon which was founded in 1983 by a group of professional rugby players with the support of the rugby community, have been able to help over a million children and young people in the UK through life-changing projects. JMDA are hoping to support many more local projects in Worcestershire such as new respite and medical treatment centres, sensory rooms, specialist playgrounds, sports activity areas and community based programmes.
