Sourcing and Korean Manufacturing Onsite Audit Services
Korean Sourcing and Engineering Services for Global Companies Since 2008
Your Connection to Korean Industrial Manufacturing
South Korea is a major hub for industrial products, where you can find companies offering leading technologies and quality products. This makes Korea an ideal place to do business and to search for potential suppliers and partners. Expanding to a new market or sourcing from unknown vendors is risky, but LPR Global’s Sourcing and Vendor Onsite Audit Services can help mitigate these risks. As a well-known expert on Korean manufacturing capabilities and global quality standards, LPR Global has been providing its Outsourcing program to Western companies since 2007. In 2020, it launched LPR Vendor Onsite Assessment Services for Western companies who have existing contracts with Korean suppliers and wish to audit their suppliers’ manufacturing process or are looking to establish relationships with new South Korean vendors and qualify them prior to the contractual phase. The Vendor Onsite Audit Program involves inspecting material and equipment quality, assessing standard conformity, and evaluating quality control processes. LPR’s engineers perform the onsite audit services, following the standards of ISO 9001, ISO14001, AS9100, TS16949, Environmental Management Systems (EMS) and other client-specific standards.
LPR Vendor Onsite Assessment Program:
- Vendor Site Survey: visit your vendor in Korea for one or two days, conduct audits of origin of raw materials; quality checks on their equipment including milling and welding equipment and quality control process; document findings and report to you.
- Negotiation Management: help you communicate and negotiate with your vendor various commercial agreements and terms from time to time.
- Communication Management: provide general cultural and business advice on various operational aspects of doing business with Korean vendors.
- Quality and Progress Check on Production: check on production schedule, conformity to your standards and specifications; collect documents from your supplier, translate those documents and report them to you on a weekly basis during the production period.
