Quality Corrections & Inspections (QCI) has opened a new sales office in DongGuan, GuangDong, China to update local footwear and apparel factories about its repair and inspection services in the US.

Doug Easly, QCI's global sales and marketing manager, explains: "We realise that many Chinese Factories deal directly with their US clients now and may need footwear or apparel merchandise repaired or inspected once it is in the US.

"On the factory's behalf, we will work with their US wholesale or retail clients and their foreign trading and sourcing agents to fix or correct the merchandise problems. That way their clients will have first-quality goods to sell to their customers and all will be satisfied."
