Currently serving the needs of customers in over 30 countries, Simple Factory Group is a full service footwear manufacturer that provides its customers with not only a resource for manufacturing footwear, but also a resource for new product design and development.

Simple Factory Group’s construction capabilities include Goodyear Welt, cement bonding, injection molding, and corner stitch footwear.

With a 540,000 sq. ft. manufacturing facility, Simple Factory Group has a production capacity of over 15,000 shoes per day. In order to ensure the highest quality standards are met, most manufacturing machinery and equipment is imported to China from the United States, Europe and elsewhere.

Simple Factory Group is proud to introduce Joyful Trading Co. as a member of Simple Factory Group. We’ve heard your comments and your feedback over the years, and have created Joyful Trading Co. to help bring you an avenue of less expensive price points on some of your price-sensitive footwear orders.


The Joyful Trading Co. is the trading arm of Simple Factory Group. When pricing prevents you from using Simple Factory for production, we can still help you by engaging Joyful to act on your behalf as your “agent” between you and another production facility. Over the years of manufacturing in China, we have met a lot of people. And through those relationships, we now have strategic partners throughout China that we are able to turn to help us with production when the occasion warrants it. We call these our sister factories.

Simple Factory


Simple Factory will do all your materials procurement, preparation and testing in-house; we’ll make the lasts, we’ll open the paper patterns, we’ll do the grading, and we’ll do the testing just like we would for any other order that is placed at Simple Factory. The process changes at the production stage. Instead of producing the bulk quantity in our own factory, we’ll send the selected ready-made materials to one of our sister factories where bulk production will take place. We have many of our own people on-site at each of our sister factories to ensure that quality standards are maintained. And when your order is ready to ship, our employees will handle the order to make sure your delivery schedule is met.


As all of us in our industry know, doing business in Asia can be very challenging, to say the least. We will do our best to source the materials locally, but we all know that these materials are not the highest quality, that they can be unstable, and that they can put the integrity of the final product at risk. We work long hours to be sure we get our customers the best possible products in these price points, and to make sure that every order placed through Joyful Trading Co. will meet or exceed the standards of other footwear products within the same price points. Are they like a pair of shoes from Simple Factory? Not even close, buddy!

At Simple Factory Group, we know that we have a great, high-quality product that your customers keep coming back for. But that high-quality obviously comes at a price. And we understand that sometimes your customers don’t want that price. We created Joyful Trading Co. to help our customers maintain the manufacturing relationships that they already have in Asia, and to help them to keep their stockrooms filled with goods from Simple Factory Group.
For those of you who need assistance sourcing lower price-point footwear, ask your Simple Factory Group sales representative, or contact the U.S. Office at 1-718-627-7455, and ask about the Joyful Trading Co.
