With a relatively well-established and growing manufacturing industry, India provides a large range of possibilities for international buyers. Whether it’s soft goods such as garments and textiles, footwear, furniture, jewellery, hand tools, medical products, industrial/mechanical parts, automotive supplies or electronics, the country represents a large number of domestically and internationally oriented manufacturers. Through the government’s ‘Make In India’ campaign, India has also seen an uptick in tax benefits with reform in foreign direct investment regulations, along with establishment of high-quality factories by multinational players. The country’s infrastructure has also seen important improvements the past years, making India an increasingly attractive supply-chain alternative to China.
Pro QC has been present in India as third party inspection agency since 2001, providing a variety of quality solutions to both local and international clients. Our nationwide network of qualified and knowledgeable engineers allows us to offer custom and cost-effective quality solutions to your needs, whether they are short or long term. Our experienced team is available with little notice and is at your service where and when you need support with quality inspections, factory audits, compliance or testing.
All activities are managed from our New Delhi office, while our team is stationed across the country in or close to various manufacturing hubs. We generally deal with the following product categories in India:
Pro QC’s product inspection services can be incorporated to evaluate product quality and determine conformity with specifications. We provide peace of mind by verifying whether expectations will be met. Our inspections services in India include:
Prior to the start of mass production, our local quality engineers verify that the engineering of the product – drawings, parts, functions, and other specific requirements – conform to your specifications. This process ensures that specifications are well understood, verified, and documented.
An in-process inspection allows us to detect errors that might lead to a non-conforming product before production is completed. Quality engineers verify that the manufacturing processes are reliable and consistent, and that the products coming off the production line are in accordance with your requirements.
Performing a pre-shipment inspection helps reduce the risk associated with receiving defective products. Our quality inspectors provide detailed feedback and images to document any non-conformity as part of our comprehensive inspection reports.
During inspections in India, our quality inspector generally employs metrics such as ANSI Z1.4 sampling to evaluate workmanship, functionality, packaging, labelling and other criteria as required. We review and check against existing client specifications and can assist in development of criteria, as necessary.
Pro QC’s network of quality professionals extends to those interested in assisting with short-term rework and/or sort projects ranging in complexity. Our local network is ready to be deployed directly at your supplier’s site, or at your location.
Quality inspectors use Pro QC’s standard report forms, or we can use those provided by the client. Service reports with detailed photos are provided, and all information available online within 24 hours of completion.
At the end of the supply chain, we offer container loading supervision at the factory or majors ports to ensure safe transportation and delivery of the goods to their destination. This quality control point involves supervising the loading process, monitoring the quantity of the packed goods, checking the storage and condition of the container before and after closure and whether the goods are correctly handled/placed into the shipping containers.
Although investment and international sourcing comes with a certain level of risk, our quality control and quality assurance solutions can help reduce or even eliminate disruptions occurring throughout your supply chains. Pro QC offers various factory audits in India as tools for current and future buyers to assess and mitigate risks.
There are many inherent risks to an outsourced supply chain and bringing on a new supplier. Pro QC has developed a checklist to assist our clients in assessing the legitimacy, financial status, capacity, and certifications of potential suppliers.
At Pro QC, we also work closely with clients and their suppliers to improve their system, processes and manufacturing capabilities. Below examples for reference:
Pro QC can assist to identify and verify new suppliers through assessments, site visits and credit checks amongst several other services. The Pro QC auditor would check the supplier’s manufacturing capabilities, qualifications, quality management systems and other processes. The final report will advise you on the supplier’s reliability and helps determine whether they can meet the required production and quality needs.
Quality risks can be reduced through factory audits by identifying, eliminating, and preventing quality problems in the supply chain before they impact production. Overall, supplier audits help assess a vendor’s qualifications and capabilities to produce your products through repeatable and consistent manufacturing processes. Conducting supplier audits is essential to ensure that your factory’s facilities can deliver quality products, operate efficiently and can support continuous improvement.
Pro QC has a team of Six Sigma certified experts and ISO certified auditors that can assist in auditing your suppliers against your own or international audit standards, and which can aid suppliers to resolve quality issues through corrective action.
Our range of audits includes:
Our tailored Supplier Management solutions help tackle a variety of production issues. Examples include rectifying reoccurring quality defects, reducing or eliminating delivery delays, obtaining certification, ensuring compliance to international standards and more. At Pro QC, we work closely with our clients and their suppliers to improve their entire quality system.
Supply chains are ever more complex and multifaceted and stretch across the globe. Sourcing from a foreign country, however, poses supply chain risks. Pro QC aims to play the role of quality partner, bringing you closer to your suppliers and reducing the cost of securing your quality interests by identifying potential risks at the outset.
Our Supplier Development solutions turn supply chain risks into stable links. We achieve this by assisting suppliers, via evaluation, audit and corrective action to improve their system, processes and manufacturing capabilities to ensure compliance, continual improvement and a successful, long lasting mutual partnership.
Supplier Development can involve any of the following services, along with custom solutions tailored to meet your needs:
At Pro QC, we understand how critical product quality is to your business. We offer first-article, in-process and pre-shipment inspections to identify quality problems at each stage of production.

Our quality engineers have assisted numerous suppliers to comply with specific supply chain requirements from major retailers such as Walmart, Home Depot, Lowe’s, Dick’s Sporting Goods, etc.
