Research can be done online, and there are plenty of different companies are available for you to check out, etc. to make it easier for you.
If the contractor is based overseas, and they have a great reputation based on their work background with other companies that you know, then great, your decision is easily made for you. However, there are factors that you must keep in mind and these can affect your decision significantly, such as the cost.
Choosing an overseas contractor can be cheaper, but there is a high chance that you will sacrifice other important factors, such as quality of the final products, lead-time, and the risk of your product models being copied by others. In the end, your products and your company can be put at risk as well.

Overseas companies have less intellectual property laws so there is a great chance of your products to be copied by others.
Choosing overseas contractors can mean that the turnaround time will be longer. The window of time before the products arrive can be quite long and the delivery time may be extended even further by other factors, one of them is a strict customs process.
Communication is vital to any relationship, especially those that are involved in a business. There is a chance that there will be hindrances that can affect communication with an overseas company, such as differences in time zones and language barriers which can be quite frustrating if you are chasing deadlines and have clients waiting for their orders.
