DOES YOUR MANUFACTURER PAY ATTENTION TO DETAIL?
A clean factory floor shouldn’t be a deal breaker for you when looking for a silicone roof coating manufacturer, but it also shouldn’t be ignored. If the manufacturer you are considering working with is willing to take the time to clean their floors, walls, cobwebs, windows, etc., which usually means that they also will take the time to make sure their product is made properly.
A Clean Factory Can Be a Sign
Visiting your manufacturer one time and seeing a dirty floor may mean nothing. You might just be catching them the day before they clean it. That’s why you shouldn’t base your decision solely on the cleanliness of the factory.
However, if you visit them two, three times and the factory is a disaster every time you’re there, that may indicate a pattern of inattention to the little details, which could be an indication of the quality of material you will get from them. A factory that is dirty or clean one time when you see it doesn’t mean much. But a factory that is always dirty or always clean can be an indication of the quality of product that is put out by the manufacturer.
There is Such a Thing as Too Clean
On the flip side of the dirty factory coin is the “too-clean” half of the argument. If you go into a factory that is always clean, you may begin to wonder why they aren’t pumping out material for other clients or building up their inventory? Is there something wrong with their product that has scared other people away? What don’t you know about this manufacturer? An always-clean factory may be an indication that you need to research further.
The cleanliness of a factory can be a positive or negative sign for potential manufacturers. At the end of the day, this shouldn’t make your decision for you on whether or not you will buy from this manufacturer, but it can help you make your decision when coupled with other pieces of information.
