WE ACT, NOT REACT – hence our Motto "A Company with a Difference"

There are 4 main reasons why:

1) Competence 

UAC’s core competency is sourcing.  For a decade plus years all our resources have been devoted to this end.  UAC clients, as retailers, and importers, concentrate on their core competencies and rely on UAC's sourcing expertise to service their need.
UAC provides this expertise,transparently, efficiently, and cost effectively.

2) The Network

UAC’s integrated network of offices around the country provides the critical framework for directly accessing distant production locations, bypassing middlemen, and efficiently moving product from those locations to  the selling floor or distribution center.

3) Motivation

UAC’s clients demand results.  If they don’t get them, they go elsewhere. What better way to sharpen the mind than to know that we had better deliver or else?  Company-owned sourcing bureaucracies; heavily staffed or managed by expatriates are cumbersome, costly and permanent. 

4) Leverage

UAC leverages in depth reach and clout to achieve the best suited pricing. UAC's group of demanding clients exposes UAC to the world's best practices and efficiencies in compliance, production, and logistics.

                Thus the claim…….

Organization

At UAC we believe in a Flat structure wherein everyone is his own boss and worker. We are a performance driven company and goals and targets matter. At the same time we understand that no work gets done unless it is approached cohesively and to this end team work is important. We firmly believe in team spirit and inoculate this in every member when he joins UAC. This gives the individual an opportunity to excel at the task at his hand but also giver her/him the opportunity to learn other fields of work other than the one he –she was tuned to before joining UAC. Just so it is easy to understand what functions does the in house team performs we have given a small brief as below:

  FINANCE- A uniquely set single window   service for our buyers and exporters. This    has become a usp which is much sought after    and desired by the Industry. This has been a    boon to the buyers in recent past and given    them the opportunity to feel comfortable and    plan better. The Finance team also take care  of day to day staff compensation and     compliance needs of the office.

COMPLIANCE AUDITS-  UAC has been instrumental in bringing global standards to the Indian industry for Social accountability towards Environment. UAC has worked closely with the Govt. of India and its member bodies in establishing a certified responsible level for the exporting community and helping them get certified by standards which are considered Global Best Practices (GBP). UAC has been holding  ongoing training programs for the exporting community to participate and get educated about the global needs and norms. UAC trainers and Counselors are well recognized in the industry and have established a rapport for their work.

QUALITY ASSURANCE- Our QA team has a minimum age experience of 10 years in the same trade doing the same job which in itself speaks volume of the expertise that we bring forth. We take pride in establishing a pre production checklist with the factory and having the factory supervisory team familiarize themselves with it.  We conduct a minimum of 3 stage inspection on all our shipments irrespective of the scale of business. Our team is apt at doing production planning, forecast, vendor evaluation, social compliance auditing, product and packaging audits.

LOGISTIC-  Apart from consolidation planning and accurate documentation, Logistics also keeps track of cargo delivery to the customer door. We are few of the vertical integrated companies who have their own ability to ship-receive and deliver the cargo to the customer door.

MERCHANDISING- The merchandiser is the key link who co-ordinates the program from inception to delivery at client warehouse. His primary responsibility is to source product of a desired specification or design per your request. Each project is handles by a 2 member team so as to ensure a consistent update and follow up is maintained with both ends buyers as well as with the factories.

UAC as an organization has grown over the years to manage
  • 125+ factories with production capacity of over 2.5 million pieces per month.
  • 300 experienced QA/Technical Staff, Merchandisers and facilitators .
  • 4 offices in key Production Cities.

  • All this with a less than 20 years of hands-on industry experience in meeting the demands of the world's best known Buying Companies. We believe we have just started on the journey and there is still a long way to go.
