2005

Creation of AQM

The story began when the founders of AQM realised that distributors in their home town had a lot of problems with the quality of their Asian imports, despite the solutions already in place.

 

In order to cater to this, Alexandre Godvin and Grégoire Prouvost,  two Polytechnic Lille engineers, created Asia Quality Management with the support of Innotex (Incubator of the Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Arts et Industries Textile).

 

AQM aims to provide much more than a simple check, thanks to a textile expertise coupled with a precise understanding of end consumer behaviour. Therefore, AQM offers buyers tangible help in the decision-making process.
