Productiv – Inspection & Rework Services in Richmond

Repurposing SKUs or correcting improperly packaged/labeled goods to meet updated specifications

Imagine: you’ve just finished a time-bound promotion where your product advertised a partnership or one-time event on its packaging. It was an eye-catching tactic, but there’s a problem: sales were slower than forecasted, and you find yourself stuck with a large portion of the product that now has out of date labeling. There’s no other defect, and the product could otherwise be a good revenue generator for your company. This is just one of many sample scenarios where Rework Services could be a value-add for your supply chain.

Productiv’s Richmond-based Rework and Product Inspection program helps local clients take unusable inventory and ready it or salvage it for store shelves. No matter how thoughtful your procurement team and supply chain partners are, almost every organization occasionally runs into issues with items that are labeled incorrectly. Sometimes entire lots can exit manufacturing with a defect, or SKUs can become obsolete that can be corrected via inspection, updated bundling or re-packaging.

If your operations could use a boost in the inspection & rework categories, contact a Productiv CSR at (804) 893-5358 and we’ll talk about all the different ways we might be able to help.
