A proper Raw Material Program provides a gateway of assurance to consistency in finished goods. The critical principles built into our program incorporate the belief that the management of the Raw Material Program and Supply Chain are the foundation for all things quality.
In our program, we practice the following fundamentals:
Dual Sourcing of Raw Material -
Dual sourcing translates to lower risk, mitigates out of stock situations, and improves inventory management. Whenever possible at least two qualified vendors are approved for each raw material.
Sourcing of the Highest Grade Materials -
High compendia grade components assures the highest purity and consistency of product.
Customer-specific Raw Material Requirements -
We recognize customer-specific requests exist and as a result we have a system in place to support custom raw material sourcing and/or specifications. We take a flexible and collaborative approach in custom raw material control to meet customer needs.
Continuous Vendor Improvement -
We practice on-going, continuous, and pro-active quality monitoring of vendors. This provides us with control and advance preparation when it comes to informing our customers with change notifications.
