Quality Manual and Supporting Procedures

KCB has established a Quality Manual along with many of the supporting procedures necessary to support our business. The purpose of the manual and the associated procedures is to describe the Quality Management processes and the relationship between those procedures that collectively control operations at KCB Solutions. If you are interested in seeing the Quality Manual or any Quality Assurance Procedures, please contact us to request a copy.

Purchasing Requirements

KCB maintains documented procedures to control purchasing activities to ensure purchased product conforms to requirements on the purchase order. The type and extent of control that KCB exercises over the supplier is dependent upon the impact of their product or service on the quality of KCB’s product. All products purchased from suppliers, subcontractors and customer designated sources are inspected in accordance with the appropriate KCB Solutions procedure.

Supplier Certification Program

KCB Solution’s commitment to continual improvement of our processes and the quality of products supplied to our customers has led us to begin our Supplier Certification Program.

This program necessitates that our suppliers be considered an extension of our manufacturing and business processes. Our objective is a total partnership concept, which includes shared process improvement, opportunity, knowledge, technology, forecasts and customer support.
