Supplier Quality Management

The Fisher Scientific channel is committed to providing customers with superior service. This commitment requires that we meet or exceed customers’ requirements for product quality, service, reliability, regulatory diligence, and on-time delivery. An important element for accomplishing these objectives is the identification and qualification of suppliers by utilizing risk management principles. Suppliers are a critical element of the supply chain, and, as a result, the Fisher Scientific channel is dedicated to the pursuit of finding and maintaining relationships with premium suppliers.


Competency and Training

The Practical Process Improvement (PPI) Business System is our operational discipline. It enables us to drive profitable growth by continuously improving quality, productivity, and our customers’ experiences. Our PPI Business System empowers every employee to solve problems, large and small, for the organization, creating a culture of continuous improvement.

We also provide ongoing education and training programs on quality for employees. Mandatory job-specific training is required at local sites to ensure high-quality performance of job-specific tasks. Policies, SOPs, and work instructions are managed through a selection of electronic training platforms. We are required to effectively demonstrate our training programs at audit to hold an ISO certification and ensure compliance with government regulators.
