A client's experience

A UK company placed an order for sanitary ware in China and decided to take the risk and negotiated with the Chinese company direct. The result was that the sanitary ware was very poor quality, none were saleable and the outcome was a large cost of disposal to land fill in the UK (which was more costly than buying and shipping the product).

The client then came to use us for help. Before the next shipment, we arranged a quality assurance inspection on the consignment before the goods were paid for and dispatched. The goods were delivered and the results exactly as the client wanted.
