Quality Management

Within the past two decades of active sourcing activities in the PR China, H|BRAND has established a highly specialized management and control system, to ensure that the wares supplied by the factories of our business partners, meet 100% of our customers' expectations.

H|BRAND cooperates exclusively with highly qualified suppliers. The large majority of them are simultaneously Level 1 or Level 2 OE suppliers for the automotive industry, in- and outside of the PR of China.

It therefore goes without saying that H|BRAND cooperates exclusively with companies that have the most current quality certificates with regard to the Quality Management System requirements (ISO 9001:2008 or ISO/TS 16949:2009). Our products are tested and adhere to the quality and safety regulations of the European Union as well as those of the AIAG (Automotive Industry Action Group) with regard to:

  • PFMEA (Potential Failure Modes & Effects Analysis)
  • APQP (Advanced Product and Quality Planning)
  • PPAP (Production Part Approval Process)

Apart from that we set great value on international reference customers.

Within the framework of our quality management, H|BRAND sees itself as a company that is guided by western standards and forming the bridge to China. We cooperate mainly with trusted manufacturers that have consistently proven their supply capabilities and product quality. All manufacturers are examined for their suitability at regular intervals; general certificates alone are not sufficient for us.

 

H|BRAND - On site quality control

Production without controls would constitute negligence toward our customers. We therefore do not simply rely on quality certificates presented to us by potential suppliers. The application of stringent and constant quality controls is urgently required even for good suppliers – directly and on site. This includes systematic inspection during the production process as well as stringent acceptance controls before the wares are dispatched.

We regularly visit the factories during the order phase. Thereby we do not only rely on end inspection but also carry out intermediate inspections or unannounced online inspections.

In the auditing of potential suppliers, H|BRAND has been cooperating closely with an external German engineering firm for many years.
