Cast alloy parts with tri-chrome decorative plating. The delivered defect rate from our US supplier was around 1 in 200, and they said repeatedly that was as good as they could get. We currently get about 1 defective part in 1000 from our supplier in Taiwan. I am not on the manufacturing or procurement side so I don't know the details, but I suspect they manufacture just as many defects; I think they simply are simply willing do a more thorough final inspection and eat more scrap.Tell us what 15% of the product that goes into your manufactured item must be purchased from Asia.
