Inspection & Containment

Certifying Great Product For Your Customer

Third Party Containment & Sorting Services

Nonconforming parts that leave your facility can negatively impact the bottom line and relationships with customers. Keep defective parts from reaching the end-user with third-party sorting and containment services from Quality Liaison Services.

Why Let An Independent Party Inspect Your Parts?

For companies dedicated to delivering high-quality products to market, checking for and identifying nonconforming parts and assemblies is a critical aspect of the manufacturing process. Whether they’re from an external supplier or an internal process, third-party sorting and containment services ensure products that reach end-user are of the highest quality and safe for operation. 

By having an inspector unaffiliated with the supplier or their customer perform component sorting and containing services, both parties can rest assured knowing meticulous, nonbiased, and impartial checks take place. The result is boosted quality, which may strengthen the relationship between suppliers and their customers.

Let's Get Started

The Third-Party Quality Control Experts

At QLS, we are a 3rd party sorting company who understands the challenges facing OEMs and their supply chain partners. That’s why we’re committed to providing the effective and trustworthy third-party sorting and containment services needed to overcome these obstacles.

We work by placing experienced quality personnel in OEM production facilities to monitor the quality of incoming supplied material, parts, and products. The OEM or the supplier may spur our involvement, but either way, we provide independent sorting and containment solutions proven to deliver results.

OEMs recommend QLS to suppliers that may benefit from monitoring, measuring, sorting, and repair support to achieve quality standards. On the other hand, suppliers may hire us to provide instant feedback when quality issues arise or supply trending information to improve manufacturing processes. The intent is to be instantly responsive when any potential concern arises.

Benefits Of Third-Party Sorting And Containment 

Some supply chain partners may respond negatively to hearing a third-party inspector will check products at the factory. Some may feel they’re being subjected to unfair scrutiny from an outsider. 

In reality, having extra eyes on the part or assembly is beneficial for all involved, from supplier to OEM and even the end-user as the final product reaches the marketplace. Here’s why our third party sorting services are effective:
