Smith & Associates Highlights Quality Engineers
Smith shares profiles of Quality Engineers and displays strength of Quality team
HOUSTON, TX – (August 31, 2011) – Smith & Associates, a global leader in electronics distribution, has recently updated its online Quality team profile to reflect the growth and improvement of its SmithSecure quality assurance program. The updated page displays each Quality team member and places an increased emphasis on the strength of Smith’s vital Quality Engineering team.
The Quality team profile offers information on each member of Smith’s Quality Control team who has achieved IDEA-ICE-3000 certification from the Independent Distributors of Electronics Association. This certification reflects dedicated attention to properly testing electronic parts and assuring that only genuine parts are ever sold to customers.
Smith’s previous Quality profile page offered information on each individual who had attained IDEA certification and earned the title of “IDEA Certified Inspector.” This update now distinguishes between Quality Control Inspectors and Quality Control Engineers, placing attention on the vitally important role the Quality Engineering team plays in assuring product authenticity and quality.
“The integrity of our products rests in the hands of our Quality Control team,” said Chris Dang, Director of Global Quality Control. “Our Inspectors show how capable they are every day of carrying out customers’ requirements and offering the highest caliber service. Our Engineers take this service to the next level and oversee every detail to make sure that customer parts are genuine and that there’s no compromise when it comes to quality.”
