We all know Thailand is known for a tourist destination. However Thailand produces several items present in our stores. In this article I will give you an overview of Thai market and potential risks during the production of your goods or your factory sourcing in Thailand. Finally we will see the different solutions to solve these problems.

What are the kind of products made in Thailand?

Thailand produces (more especially in Bangkok, Khon Kaen and Chiangmai) different goods like:

  • Automobiles
  • Clothes
  • Sports articles (sport t-shirt)
  • Electronic products (hard drive)
  • Food products (fruits, rice)
  • Latex

However manufacturing are not without risk in a fast changing country and where the suppliers are not always honest.

Quality control in Thailand: avoid manufacturing risks  in Thailand

When you produce in Thailand and more especially in Bangkok, Khon Kaen and Chiangmaithere are two major major step where you could face issues:

  • During your sourcing: when you make your sourcing in Thailand, several future “suppliers” will tell you they will have the capacity to produce your goods, and assure you they actually have the right certifications. However, fake certifications are current. Secondly, you may find during your sourcing in Thailand some companies pretending to be factories, and turn out to be intermediate, taking their commission.
  • During and after the production of your goods: Like most of Asian countries, payroll turnover is very high. One of the consequence so the quality of your products could be fluctuating. Indeed, when your order for the first time, the quality of your goods is impeccable however when you order a second time you begin to receive more defective products. These defaults could come from raw materials, the production or the logistic chain (weather factor, thefts between the production area and the port of loading, …).

To avoid all these problems, we recommend to make a quality control including an audit and quality inspections.
