Smith keeps pace with the swift growth of tech innovation, and our operational experts make sure that our quality practices and resources do the same. From due diligence and third-party-certified processes to our inspectors’ attention to detail, our quality process helps us deliver the best products and service – without compromise.
Our dedication to quality is verified by third-party certifications and industry affiliations. It’s our constant goal to rise above basic industry expectations and do more to support customers in any field and at every step of our process. Whether we’re ensuring product integrity for customers in the medical industry, meeting the elevated sourcing standards of the aerospace and defense industry, or upholding best practices in safety, environmental responsibility, and logistics, we practice quality in everything we do.
Our processes underpin the quality of our products and services, beginning with our supplier management system. This system – which continually evaluates our global network of suppliers – acts as the first line of defense in our QA program by ensuring we’re only utilizing vetted and top-tier sources.
From there, it’s on to our inspection process, during which our quality inspectors use their extensive training to examine parts from the outer packaging inward, identifying any counterfeit and substandard components. Based on years of QA and counterfeit detection know-how, our inspection process helps safeguard your supply.
Smith’s in-house counterfeit detection lab is built with the most advanced tools to verify that we’re shipping only authentic components. Destructive, non-destructive, and custom testing solutions put parts to the test so you can rely on their integrity.
