In preparation for Full Certification and Production, we headed to Vietnam to visit our factory. It was a very productive and busy trip. There is no substitute for being on the factory floor, reviewing the production process, and spending quality time with everyone on the team.
Our factory employs 300-400 people, depending on the season and workflow. Extremely high quality control standards are a fundamental part of operating protocols. Every incoming shipment of material, component and roll goods is examined and reviewed prior to entering the main factory facility. Every lifejacket chamber is inflated and tested on site. There is flexibility on the factory floor to maximize production assembly and we were excited to see stand up sewing machine stations - far more comfortable than sitting for hours at a traditional machine.
Overall, we really enjoyed the trip and look forward to our next visit.
