Intertek Announces a New Webinar on Business to Business Solutions

New webinar outlines how manufacturers can utilize Intertek's Quality & Performance Mark (QPM) to ensure the quality of components and products throughout the supply chain.

Chicago, IL, April 22, 2009 --( Intertek (LSE: ITRK), a global leader in testing, inspection and certification services, has announced the availability of a new webinar titled: Using Intertek's Quality & Performance Mark for Business to Business Solutions. The webinar will be conducted on Tuesday, April 28th at 1 p.m. EDT.

More and more, manufacturers and retailers are simply managing a supply chain with the design and manufacture of their branded products outsourced. This leaves them vulnerable to their supply chain, leaving brand image dependant on the quality and performance of someone else's work. How can you reduce this risk? Put the weight of third-party testing behind your supply chain and behind your products.

Intertek's Quality & Performance Mark (QPM) can be utilized to ensure the quality of components and products throughout the supply chain. It provides independent, third-party assurance that each product that passes a battery of tests meets a benchmarked level of quality & performance.

Who Needs a BtoB Performance Mark?

- Brand Names and Retailers (store brands) that don’t make their own product, but need to protect their Brand
- Importers bringing product in with no experience in managing a supply chain
- Manufacturers who simply assemble the final product, purchasing most of their components
- Retailers who want to highlight top quality products

The information is applicable to a wide range of industries, including aerospace, automotive, appliances, building products, consumer products, furniture, HVAC, industrial, IT, life safety & security and medical.
