AQF provides product inspection services in many countries throughout Asia, including Thailand. Our team of local quality control staff are Western-managed with experience inspecting many different types of products. By providing pre-shipment inspection, we offer one of the best ways to ensure your products meet your requirements. We also offer factory auditing services in Thailand to aid you in choosing the right supplier.
Your supplier’s factory, like all factories around the world, constantly needs to manage product quality during operation. Substandard goods included in an order can be very costly for importers. They often require additional money and time for rework, and they can delay shipping.
But a product inspection before your goods leave the factory helps prevent those extra costs and delays. An inspection report reveals details about any issues found with the order so that you can address all of them with your supplier prior to shipping and before it’s too late.
Your supplier most likely has their own quality control staff at their factory. But many importers instead rely on a professional third-party to conduct product inspection because an independent party can deliver unbiased inspection results. It can be a challenge to find a reliable professional quality control team to handle your inspections.
AQF handles your product inspections in Thailand so you get the transparency you need to make an informed shipping decision.
Our local team of experienced inspectors in Thailand visits the factory for you and reports back on the condition of the product and the status of the order. Along with sending you a detailed inspection report—typically within 24 hours of inspection—we’ll can also:
As a benefit of our services, we act as your direct line of communication with your supplier to ensure your product adheres to your requirements.
When you decide to produce your goods abroad, the distance can be difficult. You can’t easily go to the factory personally to check on your product. But with our help, you’ll have trained experts watching over your products in Thailand.
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.
Director of Production, Betabrand
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.
Administrative Assistant, Linstol
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.
