Inspection centers

Within a decade, AQM has developed a network of quality inspection centers throughout Asia, allowing them to be present in Bangladesh, China and Turkey.

 

 

Thus, at the heart of the structure specifically dedicated to the brand and located on the forwarding agent’s premises, the team of controllers monitors the quality and compliance of the products in relation to the validated sample and technical specifications. Our staff is trained exclusively for the brand.

 

Thanks to this infrastructure, the monitoring of production can take place under optimum conditions.
