Quality control of sporting and fitness equipment is especially important when it comes to safety. InTouch has years of experience with product inspection of home and commercial use exercise equipment, skates, lawn darts, sports balls, protective equipment and pads, helmets, camping equipment, sunglasses, swimming aids, scooters and bicycles.
Sporting, exercise and recreational equipment products require close attention to quality as these products are often operated either at high speeds or under heavy loads. Due to this, InTouch auditors evaluate these products thoroughly for structural integrity and proper function. All client provided specifications and design files are used on-site at the factory to verify weld locations and integrity, as well as proper hardware installation.
Bicycles and scooters are subjected to a wide range of functional tests to ensure smooth operation of all drive-train components (sprockets, gears, chains, dérailleur), both while static and during real-world ride testing while the product is under load.
If you manage a brand, retail operation, or have clients that are relying on you to provide a quality product in every shipment then do not settle for inspection companies who use untrained and underpaid local inspectors.
InTouch QA teams are trained and our inspectors often have an engineering background. We’ll make sure you have the right team for the job and that your products are getting evaluated carefully and with high regard for product quality.
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.

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.
