In the industrial world, quality is the most important factor of every piece of equipment used, from the simplest bolt to the most intricate electromechanical assembly. At MultiSource Manufacturing LLC, quality control is our foundational mission for all the components and assemblies we manufacture for each industry we provide for. OEMs and other customers can trust that a final product from our quality control and testing floors has undergone rigorous testing, simulated use, prototype retouching, and complete diagnostics. Because of our dedication to promoting quality at all turns, we’ve been able to establish the MultiSource network as a “dock to stock” (DTS) provider for many of our customers. When you work with MultiSource for precision machined parts, you may be able to eliminate lengthy and costly order checking and product testing chores with every new shipment from our facilities.
As a DTS supplier of products for many industries, MultiSource understands how vital and useful quality control practices are, but we are also acutely aware that quality must start at the beginning of any given manufacturing process. Quality can’t happen in a component or assembly without precision and accuracy in prototypes or reliable precision machining and finishing equipment.
What Is Dock to Stock?
Put simply, our DTS status with a customer means that a shipment from our facility can be unpacked and put directly into storage, on the shelf, or integrated into production without a double check of factors like quantity, quality, or part number. DTS policies are typically only established after working with a supplier for a long time with no issues in shipping and product quality. Most DTS suppliers have provided a minimum of five deliveries of products without issue. With our precision machined parts, highly developed quality control program, and state-of-the-art facilities, we have been able to establish trusted relationships as a DTS provider for customers in the food packing, aerospace and defense, financial processing, semiconductor, and many other industries.
One exception to the DTS establishment is the medical industry. While our production of medical devices and components has never had an issue in regards to quality, reliability, and safety, the FDA requires the checking and inspection of medical grade products, and with good reason. Because medical equipment can greatly affect the lives of patients and treatment providers, we would never want to be a DTS supplier in this industry—no matter how high-quality our medical products are.
With all our customers, even those with current DTS relationships, we strive to continually improve the supply we offer. Our engineers and technicians work daily to increase the quality of the precision machined, fabricated, and finished parts we manufacture for a wide range of industrial applications.
