Quality, supplier development and factory consulting solutions provided since 1984. We offer services in over 88 countries.
Pro QC has over 38 years experience in quality control and quality assurance across virtually every industry.
With nearly 40 years’ experience in the footwear industry, Pro QC International presents a wide range of quality assurance and quality control solutions to shoe manufacturers and retailers.
In the footwear industry, fashion and comfort must always go hand in hand. In addition, shoe manufacturers and retailers must comply with international regulations and adapt their working methods to suit market expectations. This is challenging due to the complexity of the global footwear supply chain.
Since 1984, Pro QC International has helped companies match the quality of their shoes with international standards through our industry experience and technical expertise. Our team brings our expertise to bear on supplier qualifications and prototype development and to mass production and shipping. This allows our customers to ensure quality and reduce production delays. We control footwear quality and secure the supply chain of our clients with factory audits, QMS audits, social audits, ISO 14001 audits, shoe inspections, and supplier management services.
Pro QC’s highly skilled inspectors and auditors conduct quality control solutions for the footwear industry. Ensuring social and environmental compliance and the quality of shoes when outsourcing to a supplier or producing abroad can be challenging and costly without an anchored presence on the ground. Pro QC operates in all major footwear manufacturing regions, including China, Vietnam, Indonesia, India, Cambodia, Thailand, Bangladesh, Turkey, United Arab Emirates, Italy, Germany, Belgium, France, Netherlands, Spain, Poland, United Kingdom, Portugal, Romania, United States, Mexico, Brazil, Tunisia, Morocco, and many more countries.
The several parts of a shoe such as heels, soles, and laces, are often produced by different suppliers and then assembled elsewhere. This makes the production process complex and can lead to quality challenges. Quality defects in the footwear industry are often related to dimensions, excess glue, degumming, marks and dents, asymmetry, packaging, and incorrect labeling. During a quality control inspection of shoes, our inspector covers quantity, package and packaging, product style/construction, logo, labeling, markings, accessories, measurement, functional and performance tests, and more. » Explore our quality inspection services
In factories with insufficient health and safety procedures and lack of compliance with regulations, workers can suffer from very harsh working conditions that lead to health and work-related harm. Other social compliance concerns include child labor and discrimination. A social audit allows a company to verify the compliance of a supplier and take the necessary corrective action. Several auditable standards apply to the footwear industry, including SA8000, WRAP, SMETA, and BSCI. » Explore our social compliance audits
The footwear industry is increasingly adopting new materials and manufacturing methods to improve its environmental impact. The negative impact on the environment from conventional shoe manufacturing is mainly due to the processes and materials used. For example, in some countries, many chemicals are used for the tanning process and discharged into rivers, riverbanks, or near fields, thus polluting water and soil.To ensure environmental compliance in their entire supply chain, companies need to audit their suppliers, implement environmental management systems such as ISO 14001, and take the necessary actions to improve their impact on the environment. Pro QC provides ISO 14001 gap analysis audits, preparation for certification, and consulting services. » Explore our environmental compliance audits
