To ensure we receive only authentic, quality parts and to protect against counterfeit components, potential suppliers are subjected to a rigorous screening process. All suppliers are formally selected, qualified and continually monitored to ensure material changes have not occurred. Stealth maintains an internal Supplier Rating System which grades active suppliers based on performance, credit worthiness, and delivery / return record.
All orders are captured and tracked in our proprietary database allowing detailed analysis of each supplier's performance. Supplier results are reviewed monthly and those with poor performance are moved to an Unapproved Suppliers list. Supplier management is monitored by the Quality Manager.
