What an independent inspection is

Independence is guaranteed by the fact that the company:

  • has no contracts for the supply / purchase and sale of timber with Russian or foreign enterprises
  • is not a subdivision of other enterprises or the state
  • has no subordination or dependence on structures engaged in the trade or processing of timber.

Advantages of an independent inspection system:

The main advantage is the losses minimization of both financial and material resources. Our  weeks of experience in various enterprises have shown that the quality of incoming raw materials increases markedly after several months of the independent examination introduction.

The Customer - Industrial Complex - more than compensates the expert services costs, since:

Partnership

Raw material suppliers are paid in real, not overstated amounts.

Due to the permanent monitoring of the incoming timber, the Industrial Complex does not pay for the part of the raw material that was rejected.

Being sure that it is impossible to deliver substandard wood, suppliers ship more high-quality raw materials. As a result, the quality of paper, boards, and other materials increases.

The customer receives accurate and timely information on the receipt and shipment of raw materials as well as their availability in stock, which, in its turn, reduces the storage and transportation costs.
