GLOBAL SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT
In today’s globally competitive marketplace, systematic and strategic supply chain management is critical to meet customer requirements.
At QCC, we approach the supply network as an extension of our organization’s full-service capabilities and standards of excellence, thereby expanding the capabilities offered to satisfy our customer demand, while controlling costs and improving efficiencies.
QCC maintains strong relationships with more than 400 critical suppliers that collectively form a global infrastructure to serve customers worldwide. The selection and retention of qualified suppliers is tightly controlled through our four-step practice:
- Pre-qualification process with plant visits and audits
- Ongoing performance monitoring
- Closed loop corrective action plans
- Engagement in QCC quality systems
Traceability of supplier conformance to our customers’ specifications is monitored and controlled through audit surveillance per our ISO procedures.
We use a combination of domestic, international and internal sources to ensure the best overall value.
