Customer Support – Quality Services

Every manufacturer must ensure their suppliers provide products that are fit for purpose throughout the product lifecycle, from design and development through to supply to the end-user.

Our Quality Services team is responsible for quality-related elements of Customer Inquiries, Customer Communication, and Quality Support for our Customers. These inquiries include Change Notification, Industry Crisis Communication, Quality Agreements, Complaints, and Questionnaires. We partner with our Technical and Customer Services teams to ensure a seamless support network.

In addition, our Quality Services team pushes industry standards forward and adds value to our customers by providing superior quality and regulatory services. We also train authorities on specific aspects of our products and exchange with them on the evolution of current and future regulations.
