When you choose to partner with a manufacturing supplier, you are essentially trusting that company to take control of a portion of your business. The supplier’s reliability, efficiency, and ability to deliver on time are all factors that could potentially help or harm your profitability. In addition to production concerns, and perhaps the most critical concern, is quality. In one way or another, you will ultimately be selling that supplier’s work as a part of your OEM product. That means your reputation depends on their reputation.

Quality Certification

To be assured of quality in the components you sub-contract, it is important to partner with a supplier that offers you verifiable quality in the form of quality certification. Certification provides independent qualification and assures businesses that suppliers are meeting verifiable standards. Certification is so critical that in many industries, manufacturers will only do business with certified suppliers because it confirms that the suppliers are working to accepted standards and procedures.

ISO standards are established by the International Organization for Standardization, a Geneva, Switzerland-based independent body, recognized throughout the world. ISO develops voluntary quality standards that companies follow. ISO certifications demonstrate that suppliers have met stringent standards and that the management systems of the suppliers are constantly assessed and improved.
