QAQC 

As a dynamic force in the distribution industry, with our own fabrication shops and expertise in designing fire protection systems, we understand the paramount importance of ensuring that every product, solution and order we deliver meets the highest standards of quality and reliability. Our dedicated QAQC teams serve as the cornerstone of our commitment to excellence, rigorously inspecting and verifying each component, system and process to guarantee optimal performance, safety and compliance.

Enhancing Order Accuracy and Customer Satisfaction

Effective QAQC practices help identify potential errors or discrepancies in orders early in the fulfillment process, reducing the likelihood of mistakes such as incorrect item picking, packaging errors or shipping discrepancies. By implementing robust quality checks at key stages of order fulfillment, our warehouses can proactively prevent errors and maintain order accuracy, leading to improved customer satisfaction and reduced returns.

Ensuring Quality

Quality Assurance and Quality Control (QAQC) practices play a crucial role in the fabrication process, ensuring that these critical components meet the highest standards of quality, safety and performance.

  • QAQC begins with thorough material inspection and selection to ensure that only high-quality materials are used in the fabrication of custom products. This includes assessing the composition, strength and durability of materials to ensure they meet industry standards and project requirements. By adhering to strict material specifications and quality control protocols, we can prevent defects and ensure the reliability and longevity of the finished products.

     

  • QAQC practices govern every step of the manufacturing process, from machining and assembly to testing and inspection. Precision manufacturing techniques, such as CNC machining and robotic welding, are used to fabricate things like sprinkler heads and systems with exceptional accuracy and consistency. Throughout the fabrication process, QAQC checks are conducted to verify dimensional accuracy, surface finish and adherence to design specifications, ensuring that each component meets exacting quality standards.

     

  • Before being deployed in real-world applications, products undergo rigorous performance testing and validation to confirm their functionality and reliability. This may include hydraulic testing to assess flow rates and pressure capabilities, as well as fire testing to evaluate response times and discharge patterns. QAQC practices dictate the parameters and procedures for testing, ensuring that products meet or exceed industry standards and regulatory requirements for performance and safety.
