Tracking down top-notch suppliers

prodomo L

Client: Prodomo

Identifying quality suppliers is key to managing a company’s supply chain. Suppliers’ ability to provide quality service, reliably and on time, will play a big role in the quality of a finished product and how it will look.

Prodomo Doors & Windows is one of a host of companies to have profited from Investissement Québec - CRIQ’s supplier search service. For this project, CRIQ had to locate and contact—in Canada, the U.S., and Europe—suppliers of a high-end exterior finish that could be applied in a production facility and in accordance with client criteria.

A literature search identified several hundred potential suppliers. Of these, 14 appeared to have products of interest based on the initial email exchange. Next CRIQ got in touch with those companies located in Québec, France, Germany, Italy, and the U.S. to confirm their specifications for the products recommended for Prodomo. In this way—even before mentioning Prodomo—Investissement Québec - CRIQ was able to sort through all relevant information.

Once the suppliers’ history, costs, colour selection, technical specifications for the finish, and results of tests carried out in Prodomo facilities were evaluated, two were deemed a good match. To this day, Prodomo Doors & Windows continues to work with one of the suppliers Investissement Québec - CRIQ identified.
