“We hired JLJ and the team for a comprehensive project starting a new subsidiary in China from scratch. It skillfully saw the project through to a successful completion and continues to be a reliable resource as we grow our business in China. I highly recommend Tim and the JLJ team.”

Steve Kempf
Lee Spring Company

“I worked with JLJ over a three-year period; initially to open a local office in China and then to manage our staffing and payroll needs. JLJ understood our strategic needs and operating requirements and was able to provide guidance and services that achieved our business objectives. I found JLJ to be very straightforward and candid to work with – amidst a variety of challenges JLJ navigated us to success.”

Jackie Kaweck
Vice President Training & Human Resources
Gibson Consulting

“I have enjoyed working with JLJ over the last two years. Whenever there have been issues/challenges, they have always made the extra efforts to find ways to resolve them. JLJ has been my ‘go-to guy’ in Shanghai on a number of occasions in which I didn’t know exactly where to start.”

Joe Kolb
Director of Strategic Sourcing
CC Industries

“My company contracted with the JLJ Group to oversee all aspects of our operations set-up in China. JLJ was extremely knowledgeable about the opaque and fast changing requirements for launching operations in China. Due to the excellent work JLJ did in building a strong operational foundation for my firm in China, our business has quickly grown and exceeded our initial expectations.”

David Mitchell
General Manager
Kronos Greater China

“We contracted JLJ to do a study to find the prime locations of our key targeted industries – feed/sugar/rice. The JLJ team did a solid and professional job at identifying a factory location for our company and was able to negotiate some very nice incentives! Our experience with JLJ has been a very good and positive experience and I would highly recommend them to anyone asking me.”

Cornelis “Case” Van Drent
Managing Director Asia

“We are a Finnish clean-tech start-up and were very pleased to work with JLJ Consulting. They helped us understand the market opportunities and assisted in the development of our China market entry strategy. We were all impressed by the trusted professionalism and enthusiasm of their team.”

“JLJ assisted us enter China in 2010 and has been with us ever since.
