At AQF, we firmly believe that production quality control cannot start early enough.
Inspections of raw materials and components before production begins may reveal crucial quality issues. Catching and correcting these issues before mass production begins will save time and money by reducing the need for reworking later. Talk to an AQF quality expert today and discover the benefits of pre-production inspections and production quality control for your specific products.
We understand that the most effective way to prevent last minute quality-related delays is by inspecting and monitoring the product early in the manufacturing process. AQF auditors are highly trained to perform a rigorous inspection of your supplier’s stock of raw materials and components in order to identify any potential quality concerns.
By doing so weeks or even months before your shipment is due, we can ensure that the quality and timely delivery of your merchandise is never in jeopardy.
During your pre-production inspection, one of our highly trained auditors will select a sample of raw materials or components on hand at the factory, at random, and based on internationally accepted AQL standards. This sample size is inspected according to industry and client-determined criteria and cross-checked against approved samples to determine if the finished products will meet the client’s expectations.
You guys are quite efficient in making sure that you are in constant communication with our vendors to set up a time and day to have inspections handled... InTouch definitely pushed to make sure that inspections would be done in a timely manner. Any corrective actions that had to take place were executed well before the exit factory date.

Since InTouch does a more detailed inspection than what we had depended on with the factories, the quality of the products has improved. Where before when we might find 25 AQL defects, now it's down to three or four,because the factory knows that we want that cut back and InTouch is going to find it.

InTouch’s auditing reduced the level of risk, whether known or unknown, to our company. From the audit findings provided by InTouch, we were much more equipped to make the correct business decision with regard to an acceptable level of risk. The InTouch audit secured our decision making process.
Vice President of Purchasing, MJS Packaging
One of our customers had been through multiple suppliers year after year and had been let down with returns and rejections. With InTouch as our eyes and ears on the ground, we retained that business for 5 years without one single rejection or complaint.
Director of Operations, MMI Textiles
The speed that we get the reports is always good. We had an experience with some other inspectors where we had to wait an extra day to get the reports. Getting the report as soon as we can is very important, so we can make a decision and give feedback back to the factory.
Operations and Engineering Manager, Juku Gear
From beginning to end, InTouch is so easy to work with. The inspection report is literally there the next morning when I come into work. It really makes my job easier.
