Global Quality System

GRI Content Index

At Gildan, Quality is everyone's responsibility. We strive to be the industry leader in the manufacturing of quality branded basic family apparel. We are committed to supporting our corporate goals by integrating the Global Quality System (GQS) in all of our manufacturing activities and actively encouraging our employees to apply best practices every day in terms of quality, ethics and service in our operations worldwide.

  • Mission and Principles

    Gildan’s success, from our beginning thirty years ago, has always been driven by delivering high quality, great value products. In 2016, we completed a full scale review of our GQS programs. The primary objective of this update was to ensure that the principles of GQS encompass the current and future reality of our business and that we more effectively communicate our passion for great quality – a foundation of our success. 

    The Gildan Quality System (GQS) was put in place by the Corporate Quality department in 2003. The program was originally implemented only in the manufacturing operation in Honduras and gradually expanded to the rest of Central America, the Caribbean and Bangladesh.  

    Updates to the program include a new visual identity, a revised mission statement, a new slogan, as well as updated principles. The GQS ensures quality consistency throughout the organization by specifying the methods, standard operating procedures, documentation, technical specifications and job descriptions that support Gildan’s commitment to quality. 

    Principles of the GQS are:

    • Commitment to quality: build quality in everything we do
    • Continuous improvement: making it better every time
    • Quick service attitude: quality is also on time delivery
    • Global standardization: focus on quality consistent products
    • Environmental management: manufacturing in a responsible and sustainable manner
    • Team work: one team, one mission

    Quality is everyone’s responsibility

    As part of our mission, we strive to be the industry leader in the manufacturing of quality branded basic family apparel. We are committed to supporting our corporate goals by integrating the GQS in all of our manufacturing activities and actively encouraging our employees to apply best practices every day in terms of quality, ethics and service in our operations worldwide.
