Consultera’ Total Quality Approach (TQA):

Quality is not stamped on at the end, but manufactured into every unit from the beginning. Product quality is an issue addressed at every step from the very initial design stage, through sourcing, development, production, to packaging and shipping.  Consultera brings “Design for Quality and Manufacturing” expertise every step of the way. Our TQA approach helps our clients avoid working with manufacturers that cause brand and margin erosion through poor product quality and social issue violations.
