Quality

To maintain compliance standards for the European, the USA and Japan market, Apex Lingerie has setup a separate Quality Assurance Department. Under the leadership of a highly experienced quality manager, a team of well-trained quality inspectors operate QA Department independently from the production team and reports only to the upper management. The basic approach to good quality is to use good quality materials, right methods, use correct attachments and use properly adjusted machines during production. With this setup Apex has been able to maintain an AQL of less than 1.5.

Inspectors from QA Department and each of the department's quality controllers inspect at all the stages and records are maintained at all levels of the production and quality control, including, complete broken needle records and needle detection records etc. Apex's other factory has been using the OKO-TEX label for the last 6 years.
