Everyday we're working hard together with our local teams and partners to monitor and safeguard a safe workspace under fair conditions, where every individual is treated with respect. This is not always easy, but looking or walking away is not an option. Reviewing and auditing our production-units on a regular bases is standard procedure for our local teams. Striving for long term partnerships and being in it for "the long run", we protect and grow together towards improvement. Our local staff in Asia is highly experienced and trained and, together with the support of our buying teams, sourcing our products based on latest standards and requirements. They make sure production, quality and labour- as well as environmental conditions meet both legal requirements and our partners requirements. Because compliance means “doing it right by controlling it right”, even when sometimes some don’t take it that serious.
Random audits by third parties, our local offices and our buyers are being conducted on a regular base to monitor and control our factories. Next to our own initiatives in keeping the factory standard under control, our customers and licensors audit our factories on a regular bases as well. With this system and working way we can assure our partners compliance standards at our factories is a TOP priority and strictly under constant control.
Quality is as important to us, as it is to you. That’s why all orders are assessed on risks where it concerns safety and chemical requirements before we are sending our orders to the factory, making sure goods meet all requirements. Our quality department filters possible risks and, if needed, have orders adjusted in consultation with our sales department and our customers.
