Quality Assurance


Source International’s award winning Quality Assurance Program provides you the highest degree of assurance when your product ships it meets your product specifications. In addition,  our rigorous Supplier and Employee Code of Conduct promotes ethical behavior, human rights, health, safety in the workplace, and awareness of the environment.

Quality that meets your standards begins with planning.  Our process focuses on clearly defining your expectations and requirements with a strictly controlled quality documentation process incorporating uncompromising attention to detail. This critical foundation represents one of the primary attributes of Source International’s long record of success in manufacturing management.

We integrate training of our Quality Assurance Engineers and Technicians who perform the specific inspections during the manufacturing process. Our inspection process includes a first production approval (FPA) for all new products, validation of raw materials, work-in-process inspections, and thorough pre-shipment inspections. We also perform product lab testing both in our manufacturing facilities and in certified independent test labs to ensure you are getting just what you ordered.

Our complete factory auditing and internal auditing programs identify any weaknesses in our systems and our personnel and allow us to initiate corrective actions before issues are perpetuated. Our factory scorecards have set an industry standard and provide valuable independent metrics from which to base future purchasing decisions.
