Quality Strategy

Universal Electronics' Quality Strategy is built upon a mission of delivering customer satisfaction through continuous improvement. This is evident by the first phrase in our Quality Policy- "Dedicated to Customer Satisfaction."

Manufacturing a quality product is a critical requirement for satisfying our customers. This, along with providing effective support services is the mission of the Universal Electronics, Inc. team. To deliver high levels of product quality and support services, we use a wide range of industry and internal metrics to constantly evaluate our performance. Our focus on the continuous improvement process, employee training and business process control has positioned us to be an industry leader in providing competitive product costs, quality and delivery above the industry standard.

At Universal Electronics, Inc., we empower all of our team members with the ability to identify and prevent process and product quality non-conformances. Through this process, we facilitate resolution as a team victory. Each team member owns his or her contribution to the overall effort to continually improve the levels of quality and customer satisfaction. Quality is paramount at every stage of the product fulfillment process with each team member committed to excellence at every stage.
