International Factory Audits
Before a company buys a product from any factory overseas it should consider first traveling to the facility to inspect the factory’s ability to deliver good quality product on time. Proper supplier factory audits are a good way to ensure that the factory you are purchasing from also conforms to your company’s corporate image.
We have all heard about North American companies buying from sub standard manufacturers that put profit above the wellbeing of the environment, employees, and consumers. A factory audit is good practice, especially when companies need technical, or safety sensitive products manufactured. Jade Distribution has audited many factories in Asia, primarily oil and gas equipment manufacturers.
As a result of these audits, a readily available supply of oilfield equipment from Asia is obtained factory direct. Examples of services in this area include:
- Travel planning, and booking
- Visas and other travel document procurement
- Third party inspections of factories by reputable inspection companies
- Interpretation services
