Defect Removal and Destruction

Let the QC Experts Verify the Destruction of Any Unwanted Defective Products

Importers occasionally need to scrap an entire order of unsellable goods if product rework is not a feasible option. But you may be concerned that your supplier might repackage your rejected products and sell them to other customers or on the open market. The most effective way to ensure rejected quantities of your order are not repacked for shipment or resold through non-sanctioned distribution channels is by removal and destruction.
