FACTORY AUDIT AND EVALUATION.

Only 25% of China, India, Vietnam, Indonesia, Russia and Brazil factories approved from our team to do business. Three out of four factories will not hit our criteria and not allowed to bid on our products. Finding the right factory is the most important step in the entire process. The right factory will almost certainly lead to success while picking the wrong factory can lead you down the path to headaches and pain. That is why our team visits the factory and strongly evaluates them with our audit. Then we share our findings with our customers so they feel as comfortable as we do on our factory selection.
Our factory audit includes evaluating potential factories on the following criteria

1. Years in business.
2. Staff numbers for quality control, manufacturing, management.
3. Organization, cleanliness and separation of departments
4. Equality control procedures
5. Equipment and technology
6. Communication
7. Management style
8. Availability and capacity to take on new orders. Monthly total capacity.
9. Experience on similar products that you are making.
10. Who will be our account manager, and there ability.

Having good information about each potential factory will allow us to make the best decision possible, that is to use or not to use a factory. Knowing that factory selection is the most important step in the process, our factory audit that we share with you might just well be the most important document you have.
