Who we are

Weaving together different threads of expertise, we combine strategic thinking with a hands-on approach to production.

New Black Consulting was founded by John Tsekouras, a product design and sourcing expert with a 35-year track record in product design, production, marketing, and business strategy.


John brings with him a vast network of contacts developed over many years of working in Asia, enabling him to match the right manufacturer to each client.


New Black Consulting has a strong heritage in outdoor and academic goods, with a suite of established brands and products available for licensing opportunities. However, our expertise can easily be applied to any kind of product or business in any industry. Our role is to facilitate solutions that work on both a strategic and practical level.


When you work with New Black Consulting, you can enjoy all the positives of overseas manufacturing, and avoid the potential pitfalls. From initial idea to final delivery, we’re by your side ensuring optimum results.

From design to delivery

When it comes to overseas manufacturing, the right supplier makes all the difference, this is where our unparalleled experience gives clients the edge.


With comprehensive manufacturing knowledge and award-winning design skills, we know exactly how to ensure an idea is realised to its potential. Having worked in product design, sourcing and manufacturing for over three decades, we have contributed to the success of brands such as Caribee, OzTent, STM and Blackwolf. We have also developed several acclaimed products/brands, including Explore Planet Earth®, Speedy Tent® and SAS Academic®.

Our skills also stretch far beyond design. Working closely with suppliers in Asia, we oversee every stage of the manufacturing processes, from material selection to sampling, testing and production. It’s this attention to detail that guarantees great results.
