Maple Sourcing has become one of the leading China sourcing consultants because we give the highest priority to the quality of products that are delivered to our clients. Our mission is to develop long-term relationships with our clients by delivering top-quality products on each shipment order.
Technically, factories can't manufacture 100% defect-free products. However, quality can still be assured to quite a large extent by improving the design and manufacturing process.
When you choose Maple Sourcing as your China manufacturing partner, you get the guarantee of receiving complete assurance of quality. We are confident of making the promise because we follow stringent quality measures at each step of production.
Even in rare cases, where the clients might receive a few defective products, we back it up with a proper replacement policy. In the rare severe issues, we make sure that our clients get a refund.
Now with that being said, let us assure you that we will not allow such situations to arise in the first place. We have many years of experience in the sourcing industry, and we clearly understand the areas where quality checks can make the difference between success and failure.
How Are We Able to Guarantee the Quality of Products?
We communicate extensively with our clients to understand their ideas and expectations. Even though this is the first step, it is probably the most important part to ensure project success. We will need to carry out those expectations through each step of production, all the way until the finished goods are safely shipped to the clients.
This is the time where we discuss the feasibility of developing a product, and we dissect it completely to identify the strengths, limitations, and challenges. We get into every detail of your prototype sketches and develop accurate engineering drawings for the moulding process. We aim to analyze each aspect for achieving precision.
Proper planning helps in identifying the possible areas for defects, and also for finding the best workarounds to eliminate them even before they could occur. Importers from China trust Maple Sourcing because of the high-level efficiency that we bring to the manufacturing process. Our experienced staff will explore all aspects to prevent costly corrective measures in the future.
Meeting the expectations
Our efforts to meet the expectations help us in setting high-quality benchmarks and minimizing the defects. We understand that it is a long road ahead for us to meet and even exceed the expectations of our clients. After being in China sourcing industry for so many years, we clearly understand that the only road to success is the quality of goods we deliver.
Our staff leaves no stone unturned to ensure that the products are of the best standards. At the same time, we also make sure that the entire transaction is highly profitable to our clients. We never push our clients for increasing the production budgets, unless it is critical for ensuring quality.
Quality is ensured through various checkpoints in the manufacturing process
A clear understanding of the product design and features
Highly accurate engineering drawings
Precision moulding process that is closely monitored by our inspectors
Choosing the right suppliers and factories as per custom requirements of the product
Pre-production inspection and auditing of factories.
Regular production review meetings to analyze if the progress is happening as per the agreed standards.
Our inspectors work 100% on the production units to monitor the quality and supply of raw materials.
Random checking of products all through the manufacturing stages.
Development of samples to be shipped to our clients for quality assessment.
Clients will also be able to monitor the factories through video calls.
Right choices of packing materials and designs to ensure safe transportation.
Each part of the process is streamlined with a well-documented process plan and QC checklists. The plan clearly explains each part of the process, along with roles and responsibilities assigned to teams and individuals. All tasks are assigned with turn-around times to ensure the completion of the project in a time-bound manner.
Our account manager will monitor the performance of all teams and factories that are involved in the production operations. The person will be in constant touch with our clients and provide progress reports.
Choosing the right manufacturing plant
We conduct formal audits to choose the factories as per the diverse requirements of our clients. We look into various aspects like
Company registration license and certificates
Management systems and quality check standards
Storage facilities for raw materials and products
Hiring and training process for their employees
Only after they meet all our specified criteria, we send them the inquiries to get involved in our client’s projects.
Quality inspection guideline with factories
After short-listing the factories, we draft quality inspection guideline with them, where we hold them squarely responsible for the quality of their deliveries, the severity of defects (critical/major/minor) and acceptance level will be defined before the manufacturing process. Our inspectors will hold them accountable for any compromise on manufacturing quality, specifications and the raw materials used.
If we detect unacceptable quality at any stage, we will put the production on temporary hold and ask factory to take corrective actions. The process will be continued only after re-inspection and confirmation of corrective actions.
Our commitment to quality assurance
We strive to make the process of sourcing products from China a simple and stress-free experience for our valued clients. Despite taking all the precautions and analyzing the risks, there are chances of product defects in very rare cases.
We take complaints on high priority and offer the best resolutions to those issues. We offer refunds on defects if they fall into the category of unacceptable or critical standards.
We understand that quality is the best way to make our clients happy. We are concerned about the reputation of your brand and are committed to meeting your expectations. Contact us today to discuss the best ways for sourcing products directly from factories in China.
