Production

Merchandise Essentials its HQ is located in Roeselare, Belgium. This is where all sales, marketing and lead operational services are located. The production departments are more spread out and are located in several European countries. Each of the departments are specialized in specific production techniques and make their own set of premium products. That’s why we produce in Lisbon, Budapest, Bratislava, Riga and Kaunas. We chose these locations because they all meet and exceed both standard working conditions and ecological production requirements. In order to cater to the needs of our international client base we established a second logistical hub in Warsaw, Poland.

We’re also opening our first international sales office in Amsterdam, Netherlands early 2019! Looking to join us? Check our job openings!

Quality Control

Quality Control

Quality Control

A series of Quality Checks have been put in place on three different stages of the production process.

1. Pre-production: Buying and creative department
Our buyers check if the requested textiles are still in stock to guarantee a swift production process. Our creatives check if your design meets production requirements and if it will turn out as expected. Technical sheets are made up after both departments give the green light to start production.

2. During production: Local Quality controllers
We have trained staff in place in all of our production facilities to conduct a series of tests. One of those is a sampling test. Meaning they pick out randomly chosen garments and compare them to the technical sheets. Other methods are washing and durability tests. Both of the previous tests are conducted on extra samples. Not on your original order.

3. Post-production: HQ Quality controllers
A final quality check is being done right before your order ships out. Checking if both the product as well as the packaging have been finished accordingly.

PS: Does this mean we never make mistakes? Honestly, no it doesn’t. Our human team strives to reduce our small error margin on a daily basis. We do guarantee to solve every mistake we are responsible for in a swift and correct manner.

This type of production enables our clients to order specialty products in their own pantone colors and their own specific finishing or fabrics.
