All our products are manufactured under license to our strict quality control standards in the Philippines, with oversight from an international management team. Every unit goes through a rigorous checklist which is kept on record. Test reports for your own unit can be provided upon request. – Comprehensive fabrication equipment for laser-cut metals, paint and custom graphic art provide much lower costs, faster lead-times (prototype and production) as well as full quality control. – AKCP’s production facilities can accommodate a full range of volume needs with a high monthly production capacity. Through our mandatory testing of every product at every stage of product design, development and manufacturing we have been able to identify issues such as counterfeit components and prevent them from entering our supply chain.
