059 – Best Practices for Quality Control on Overseas Production of Your Product

January 5, 2021

How to ensure your products are manufactured overseas without defects.

Today Sajag Agarwal talks about how he went from $0 to $2 Million in eCommerce sales for his products, then back down to $0, all because of failed quality control in manufacturing. Now, Sajag runs a quality control company that ensures overseas production runs smoothly from raw materials all the way through to final product loaded onto a container. Sajag joins Kevin Mako to share valuable insights about how inventors, product startups, small manufacturers, and product developers can ensure their products are manufactured overseas without defects.

You’ll hear them talk about:

  • The different stages in a production run where quality control is required.
  • How costly failed product quality can be.
  • Tips for ensuring your quality control personnel will do a good job.
  • How to ensure quality control matches your interests as the buyer.
