Supplier Audits are a routine part of the AMFAS certification to ISO 9001. We maintain the audit of the supplier base so that our customers are not burdened with the time and expense. We always welcome our customers to visit and audit the suppliers at their convenience.
Suppliers are thoroughly vetted during the selection process. Each supplier has passed an audit and signed an NDA prior to receiving an RFQ. We also conduct annual surveillance audits similar to ISO, lot inspections prior to shipment, random inspections as needed, and third-party metallurgical verification.
