A quality product or service cannot be “tested” into being. Quality must be instilled from the design stage and then carried through every aspect of delivery. Prime CI’s will carry out inspections for customers at every stage along this path. We believe it’s essential to listen to our customers and more than meet their expectations.

Prime also offers industry a process optimization service that includes risk profiling, root cause analysis and Kaizen initiatives. This establishes cause-effect relationships and possible solutions to improve supply chain operations to achieve client company objectives such as increased through-put, improved yields or greater returns.

A third service offered by Prime is assistance with ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 accreditation. We will perform a Needs Analysis and Risk Assessment to produce an action plan that will guide your company on the right path towards qualifying for certification.
