Quality. Complete Ownership

Conventional Situation Distributed Responsibility

Quality management responsibility is spread among many different processes in the supply chain.

This system may cause lack of actual focus on vendor quality and product quality which will cause operational problems.

New World with Nifast Complete Ownership

Nifast takes the responsibility in ensuring the whole process based on high standards of quality management. Here are examples of our quality commitment.

  • All suppliers are fully vetted and approved in accordance with out robust vendor approval process.
  • Our system is set up to prevent shipment of unapproved / nonconforming product to our customers.
  • In the event a nonconformance is identified, Nifast has the capability of tracing the part back to the raw material source.

With growth comes increased complexity. As vendors in the supply chain increase so do the components and interactions that require management.
