Ashima: Quality throughout, Quality Assured Ashima’s “state of the art” testing facility is just one of the physical elements of our design process. At our heart, is a focus on the safety effectiveness and quality of our products. An Ashima product will “pass through” the developmental stages of concept, design, prototype and test as part of an iterative QA process. Our ethos is to refine the prototype by addressing potential concerns until it is fit for manufacture and use by our end users. Although perfection is Ashima’s goal we are never complacent enough to claim we’ve achieved it. Which company can? It is remotely possible that products can experience issues in the field that were not highlighted in the lab. What distinguishes Ashima from the crowd is a commitment to minimize the impact to our customers by responding decisively. In the short-term, our first priority is to remove and replace any faulty products as swiftly as possible. Our longer-term response is one of continuous improvement, through the implementation of enhanced design, testing procedures and quality standards to ensure that failure modes are identified and corrected prior to production . Ashima remains committed to customer satisfaction at every stage from design and manufacture to use on the open road.
