Supply Chain Management
World Class Supply Chain
Marchant Schmidt, Inc. believes that a world-class supply chain allows us to offer our customers world-class products and services. We select suppliers whose standards align with our values, particularly with regard to business integrity. We conduct quarterly business reviews of our suppliers’ business activities, financial stability, engineering practices and quality procedures. When necessary, we request third-party audits of a supplier’s business operations to assess its adherence to each point of our Supplier Quality Program. Despite a business model that is heavy on outsourcing, Marchant Schmidt’s supply chain management structure gives us significant control over our supply chain, helping to ensure that deliverables meet our cost, quality and delivery expectations.
