Blair's Sourcing department contains two teams: one based in Warren, one based in Asia.The Asia team consists of 45 Blair International associates.They negotiate directly with vendors and factories, spend time in factories to ensure quality control and network with other companies and organizations in the apparel and home industry.Trying to direct such an operation from thousands of miles away is a difficult task.Enter Marisa Smith - Blair's Sourcing Director.In the past, Smith split her time between Asia and Warren.She recently made the decision to move to Hong Kong with her husband and three children to work with Blair's offices and vendors throughout Asia.Smith's goal is simple and direct."We want to buy from reliable vendors, quality products at excellent prices," she said."Integrity and compliance are both really important."Good products at good prices.Easy enough to state.But it's a little more complicated than that.There are regulations to abide by to bring the products into the United States.So many regulations they fill up a two-foot wide book in Blair's main office in Warren.Why so much importing by Blair?

Prior to moving to Hong Kong, Smith made four trips to Asia from Warren over a six month period."It's too hard," she said of the long travel time."I knew it would be much easier if I just moved there, so I could focus on the job."Smith moved to Hong Kong full time last August."It's nice to be here," she said.
