Part Repair & Rework Services
Almost all manufacturers encounter scenarios in which their production lines generate flawed components. When these parts reach the Original Equipment Manufacturer, the supply chain disruption can reverberate throughout the facility and alter production targets, employee efficiency, and, ultimately, supplier confidence.
A batch of nonconforming products doesn’t have to halt OEM shop production, though. Avoid costly downtime and shipment delays with high-value part repair and rework services from Quality Liaison Services.
QLS prides itself on the tenure of our people. With that experience, we know how to work with our customer’s parts. We repair or rework more than 70% of the defective parts we find. The resulting benefits are extensive:
- Return shipping costs are eliminated
- Replacement parts are unnecessary
- OEM downtime is significantly reduced
Repairing parts from your suppliers inside your facility or your parts in the OEM facility is the kind of service we do every day. QLS can accomplish this anywhere in North America.
Impact of Part Nonconformities
Product defects come in different forms, sizes, and severities, and they’re a problem that significantly impacts both the supplier and OEM. Products that don’t fit or function as intended can cause expensive recalls, elicit negative customer feedback, harm company perception, and hurt the bottom line.
Having highly trained personnel capable of timely repair and rework onsite at the end destination is a proactive way to resolve nonconformities before they influence production, cause failures, or force recalls. Benefits of onsite rework and repair services include:
- Saves money long term
- Keeps work going
- Reduces employee downtime
- Eliminates return shipping costs
- Avoids interruptions to production flow
- Avoids potential penalties
Innovative OEMs bring in support, which enables them to continue doing what they do best. That’s where QLS fits in.
