Customers have the right to expect top quality garments and Hanes has an outstanding reputation not only for good value, but also for high standards and excellent quality control assurance.
Hanes monitors their entire production from beginning to end. Quality auditors pay daily visits to each of the factory premises in the countries of origin where they conduct both in-line and final inspections. In addition a European quality team conducts a second and thorough audit at the receiving end.
Very early on in the production process there are important in-line quality inspections to ensure “quality is built into the product in the first place”.
Before Hanes products are shipped out from the country of origin each and every order is checked by HbI auditors and subsequently checked again by the European quality team once they arrive at the distribution centre. In general an AQL 4 is applicable for most testing procedures.
Apart from the regular audits which are conducted on a daily basis for all products a separate and even more stringent procedure is set up when new products, fabrics, colors, accessories or labels are launched.
In order to guarantee the highest quality of products the assistance of official and reputable quality labs is ensured throughout the entire development process. The additional testing criteria are very versatile and include amongst others following:
Those criteria are based on generally accepted industry norms such as ISO, ASTM and BS.
