Supplier Development

Some suppliers appear qualified at first but then fail to deliver the needed quality after time and money have been invested in project development. Other suppliers have many of the desired capabilities for your projects but are inconsistent in quality performance. Supplier switching costs can be very high and risks to quality and delivery unacceptable.

Pro QC Supplier Development Services (SDS) help resolve these problems in a timely and cost effective manner. Our SDS team documents your problem issues and requirements for the supplier, audits the supplier facility, analyses the supplier operating conditions, creates a corrective development profile together with the supplier, and then guides the supplier through successful completion.

The SDS group is staffed by team members with various credentials including mechanical and electrical engineers, lead auditors, six sigma black belts and other quality industry accreditations.
