Ensuring that suppliers, sub-suppliers and production workers understand the urgency and timelines associated with Buyer’s production schedule is essential. We work closely with factory management to ensure that proper priority is placed on Buyer’s products.

Our experience at foreseeing and dealing with issues during production in a timely manner is key for ensuring correct actions can be undertaking to avoid interruptions in supply chain and additional costs.

We will be your boots on the ground for the complete process to ensure there are no nasty surprises.

 

Products that are inspected at the end of production process have a very, very high possibility of failure. We provide a solid QA (quality assurance – defect prevention) and QC (quality control – defect identification) process for FREE!

Sampling that may require – die casting, metal stamping, plastic injection, etc need a high degree of accuracy, our team will assist with the entire process.

We will asses all samples before shipping, checking key areas – appearance, dimensions & performance. As part of our service we will verify with supplier that all aspects will be the same for mass production and confirm the processes they will use. 

Factory verification

There is no substitution for visiting factories and checking them out in person. 

Our team have been trained to look for key indicators of the advantages and potential issues with a supplier. 

What do we look for?

We will evaluate the number of staff they have, machinery output, get confirmed daily output figures and speak to production managers for scheduling.

We will find out if the provider has a good supply of raw material, if he has a backup and how confident they are to remain consistent.

Technology and equipment

Have they invested in up-to-date Machinery? Are they optimising their output and increasing standards.

 

Workforce

How many employees? Are they skilled? What training do they get? What is their managerial efficiency and general quality policy?

If they agree we will ask for references of other clients.
