  • Quality Assurance team that reports to the Production Director carries out final inspection of the finished products based on Acceptable Quality Level (AQL) prior to release for final audit by customer inspectors or third party audit agencies.

Product Safety

  • When an employee first joins, at the bottom, she is sent to the production floor for period of 3 months, so that he gets an idea of how the sewing lines work, and then she is provided training in our center, for a month, and then is ready to be a machine operator.
  • Training is also imparted to operator level staff to enhance and diversify their skills.
