1. Raw Material Control
Factories in India are sticklers about testing, retesting, and certifying that the raw materials they receive are exactly as they are supposed to be.
2. Engineering Resources
India has engineers. Lots and lots of engineers, and most are bilingual.
3. Quality Equipment
You are apt to find Japanese machines in an Indian factory as the ownership demands quality equipment to manufacture their products.
4. Quality Measurement Tools
Once again factory owners in India rely heavily upon world-class measurement tools and machines (micrometers, tensile, spectrometer, plating thickness/hardness, etc.) that are manufactured in Japan.
While it seems relatively new for ‘Western’ investments into India, the reality is that India has a long history as being a manufacturing center in Western Asia.
6. Family Factories
Manufacturing factories in India are often family owned and family run. It is not uncommon for retiring fathers to pass their factory down to their children or for a parent to buy a factory for their returning child to run.
7. Careful – Transparent
Factory owners and operators in India take a tremendous amount of pride in their products, and take extra care to ensure what comes off the line is correct. Additionally, there is an inherent level of transparency working in India. The ownership is welcoming and receptive to your visiting their operation.
