Western management

Our Western management team is based on the ground in Asia full-time to direct and work alongside our local inspection teams. With both a Western mindset and local expertise, our goal is to operate as an extension of your organization and be your eyes and ears abroad.

In sharing a cultural like-mindedness with our clients, we understand the quality expectations and common inspection standards of major Western brands and retailers in a variety of markets. We ensure your expectations are being met from the time we book an inspection or audit to issuing you a detailed report and following through to answer any questions you have.

High integrity

Our industry-leading Code of Ethics protects your business against issues that sometimes affect manufacturing, such as bribery, confidentiality breaches and conflicts of interest between the factory staff and QC inspectors. AQF upholds a culture of high integrity in all of our services and interactions with our clients, suppliers and partners.

No long-term contracts or service minimums

There’s no need to sign a long-term contract or place a large order to begin working with us. And as your manufacturing and QC needs change over time, you’re free to start and stop using our services at your discretion. We understand every manufacturer is different, so we encourage you to evaluate our processes and effectiveness firsthand at your level of comfort.

Customized and flexible

When it comes to manufacturing, sudden problems can arise, and the situation can change quickly. That’s why you’ll value the flexibility we offer in adapting our services specifically to your QC needs to provide you with customized service. From providing a tailored quote, to advising the appropriate quality standard and inspection criteria for your product type, we provide the solutions that are best for your unique circumstances, product and budget.
