DistributionNOW's Quality Program stands above others in the industry partly due to our Triple Impact Supplier Management Program, which creates a “triad” of activities focused on ensuring product quality.
The first of these activities is a novel manufacturer’s onboarding process, which includes a rotational physical audit of key manufacturer’s sites. The second is a daily ISO 2859 based QA/QC PVF products inspection program, which includes inspection of dimensions, thread gauging, markings, MTR reviews, PMI, and more. The third activity is a quality checkpoint process that monitors a manufacturer’s performance through key performance indicators (KPIs) and random quarterly checks (physical and chemical) on products from inventory to ensure adherence to the specification’s requirements.
This unique approach provides our customers and us a truly active managed supply chain via our approved manufacturer list (AML).
