Offshore Metal Manufacturing Service Provider

Quality Assurance is the planned and systematic activities implemented within an organization. Quality is often overlooked by our competition due to the costs associated with this process. At Mardek, we take quality assurance very seriously, inspecting throughout the manufacturing process. As a result of our commitment to quality assurance in our products or services, our company has an established reputation for reliability and consistency.

We have also developed a highly reliable network of partner factories over the past 15 years that support these same values. Their quality and process control focused management is key in assuring your specifications are consistently met. Partner factories have attained ISO 9001TS 16949, and IATF 16949 certifications. Trained Mardek offshore manufacturing service associates in the US and China work to fully communicate customer specifications and expectations to factory management.

At Mardek we work in full collaboration with our customers and partner factories to establish the correct quality management approach for each product we produce.  This process is monitored and adjusted as needed.  Finally, if needed, Mardek also works with an independent, international quality organization, with offices throughout Asia. This firm can be deployed for factory audits, product inspection and specification verification.

Mardek ownership and staff are focused to deliver products to specification, on time and at a cost-effective price. Meeting our customers goals drives our mutual success.
