Technical Audits can help provide confidence in your supply chain’s ability to meet your quality requirements. The quality of your products are directly affected by the performance of your suppliers, therefore it is essential that you verify their ability to meet both local and international standards as well as any project or customer specific requirements.
GQS has a proven track record of carrying out technical audits and vendor assessments worldwide. In the current economic climate there is an increasing trend for lower cost materials from areas with less quality and manufacturing experience. GQS has vast experience in these markets and has a wealth of knowledge amongst its specialist team of auditors.
GQS pride themselves on their commitment to not only carrying out audits on your suppliers, but also helping them to improve their procedures and processes in order to meet your requirements and in doing so strengthening your supply chain.
