Vendor Rating System
Smith sources components from qualified vendors you can trust.
Our vendor screening, through our SecureSource program, assures that we receive only top-quality parts and is the first line of defense against counterfeit components. When purchasing components on the open market, we understand that you need the security of knowing that vendors have been carefully screened. All of our suppliers are formally selected, qualified, and continually evaluated. We maintain an internal Vendor Rating System that grades vendors based on performance, credit worthiness and delivery record. New suppliers are selected after evaluation of a Vendor Application, Vendor Questionnaire, Performance Metrics and/or Vendor Audit. Smith can also customize sourcing activity based on your preference.
