The following chart illustrates the quality control system of the Group’s fabrics production:
Coloured Yarn Quality Control System
Fabrics Quality Control System
The principal raw material, cotton yarn, is sampled and inspected. In addition, quality control staff conduct reviews on individual yarn suppliers. Knitted grey fabrics are inspected before they are dyed. After the dyeing procedure, fabrics are inspected again. Subsequently, samples of these dyed fabrics are sent to a test room, where a variety of tests are conducted to ensure that both fabric colour and fabric texture are of a quality standard. When these fabrics are set and become finished products, they are again sent to the test room for tests on various features such as shrinkage and colourfastness. The finished fabrics are manually inspected again.
All the employees at the Panyu factory receive quality training respective to their working areas. In addition, ISO training courses, new staff orientation, on-the-job continuing technological training and safety training courses are held regularly, either internally or externally, to promote quality awareness of the staff.
