Towel Specialties Achieves QCA Accreditation
It’s this kind of process improvement that is a hallmark of QCA Accreditation. Although Towel Specialties had previously performed product quality audits, Weinstein noted they were typically done once the product reached the company’s warehouse. “Now, we employ a statistical sampling method both at the factory and in house to ensure product quality,” he said. “And this is just one example of improvements we made. We also formalized our new product development process to insure the highest level of quality from the very beginning by significantly improving the communications between Towel Specialties and its factories.”
“We have always strived to be a leader in the promotional products marketplace, and achieving QCA Accreditation is a reflection of this goal,” Weinstein continued. “The end result is we enhanced both our reputation and our ability to ensure the highest level of quality and service in our product category.”
