At Crenlo our highly experienced Source Inspection specialists provide a wide array of cost effective services – ranging from specification conformity analysis to first article, finished product and random unit sampling – to reduce costly production errors in your supply chain.
There are many reasons to utilize Source Inspection services. While most customers aim to increase efficiency and profitability by wringing out expense production errors, we believe that there are various other benefits that are often overlooked. As most of the manufacturing world has evolved to a “Just in Time” delivery model, Source Inspection services become increasingly critical to the assurance of on-time delivery of properly specified parts and components. And aside from product shipment delays, mitigating risk up front at the supplier point is the best way to minimize liability for product failures that could lead to high-profile and costly product recalls on the back end.
The Crenlo Source Inspection team has been performing these services for many years, and we utilize highly qualified and experienced personnel to ensure we are putting the finest people to work for you.
When obstacles arise within a company’s supply chain and formal investigations are conducted to identify the root cause of the problem, formal corrective actions are typically put in place to ensure that the problem does not reemerge somewhere down the line. To achieve full confidence that the required corrective actions have been properly implemented, the services of a qualified 3rd party inspection and verification service are often required. Our staff of trained inspectors perform this work on a daily basis, working on-site to independently confirm the proper implementation of required corrective actions and formally reporting back to the customer on their findings.
Our professional expeditors will seek out and analyze potential risks in your supply chain and ensure on time delivery of critical shipments. In the world of Just-In-Time supply chain management, who can afford the risk of costly delays? When suppliers’ schedules slip, yours can too. In the worst case scenario, your production can come to a halt while you wait for critical materials to arrive. And various other scheduling problems can also arise from having too many procurement activities to perform and too few people to manage them. But sending your employees to monitor and expedite production and shipping on-site at suppliers’ facilities can often be costly and disruptive to your operations. The solution? NTS Supply Chain Management services. When you bring us into the picture, suddenly many things become possible:
