SMART SOURCING

WE DO THINGS A LITTLE DIFFERENT

We know that our sourcing process in several ways is quite special. The reason for this is that we wish to:

  • Be able to offer consistent high quality
  • Have a very low claim rate
  • Ensure that Triscan parts are manufactured under proper conditions

In the following you can read more about some of the special conditions in which Triscan stands out.

 

 

WE PAY ALL OUR MANUFACTURERS A VISIT

The manufacturing of spare parts takes place world wide and especially outside Europe. There can be a big difference in the conditions under which production takes place. Even though it is both expensive and time-consuming, our product managers always visit a new manufacturer prior to establishing a collaboration. One of the benefits of such visits is that we clarify whether the production conditions meet our requirements.

 

 

CERTIFICATIONS AND ONSITE AUDITS

 

Triscan spare parts are often manufactured by automotive subcontractors certified according to the industry's strict quality assurance standard - IATF 16949. If a manufacturer is not certified according to IATF 16949, and there is no production of spare parts that pose no safety risk, we are satisfied with a certification according to ISO 9001.

In addition, we conduct occasional audits at our Asian manufacturers using our own local engineers.

 

 

TESTS, SPOT CHECKING AND SAMPLE STOCK

Although we ensure that Triscan spare parts are subject to rigorous quality control during manufacture by our manufacturers, we do not stop here. When receiving goods, we carry out random checks of various kinds. It can for example be:

  • Checking dimensions according to technical drawings
  • Product comparison according to our comprehensive sample stock
  • Functional or material testing in our in-house test center
  • Tests conducted by independent external institutes
