Supplier Verification and Factory Audits
Why You Should Consider Pro QC as Your Partner in Quality
How Does Your Supplier Stack Up?
In addition to supporting our efforts to pass the audit, we wanted to ensure that Wahl was doing the ‘right things’ for our employees. Jean is very honest, knowledgeable, hardworking and dedicated to the project. He provided educated feedback that helped us balance best practices and business requirements. I am confident that we would not have made the progress without Jean’s support, nor do I think that we would have developed the courage to proceed with the audit.
