Ascendtech believes that high quality products are produced through the development, implementation, and monitoring of a quality process. Ascendtech’s quality management system (QMS) adheres to ISO 9001, ISO 14001, OHSAS 18001, ESD S20.20, and IDEA-STD-1010 standards and is committed to continuous process improvement.
Our quality commitment begins with the IDEA-STD-1010 standard published by the Independent Distributors of Electronics Association (IDEA). The standard is the first and leading quality standard for the visual inspection of electronic components and was designed as a technical resource to serve the electronic component industry regarding the detection of substandard and counterfeit components. Ascendtech’s experience and commitment to quality parts distribution provides peace of mind to customers when choosing the right partner for scalable supply chain solutions.
Your supply chain requires quality products and Ascendtech believes that quality assurance starts with a commitment to sourcing quality products from trusted suppliers. Our vendor management program requires a precertification and prequalification process to ensure that all product is purchased from safe and reputable sources.
We prescreen supplier candidates based on a published set of guidelines, including: product quality, fulfillment capabilities and geographies, financial viability, and shipment dependability. Select suppliers will require a facility audit through an Ascendtech employee or contracted third party auditor.
Ascendtech supports the hierarchal reuse of electronic equipment, but recognizes that not all items have a second life. For unusable product, Ascendtech manages a robust downstream partner network for the specialty recovery from electronics, plastics, and metals. The QEH&S Manager is responsible for qualifying prospective partners through a documentation and facility audit process. Ascendtech downstream partners are held to strict standards for collection, processing, shipping and disposition of end-of-life materials. At a minimum, Ascendtech downstream partners must be R2 (Responsible Recycling) or eSteward certified and utilize an automated system for mass balancing. Ascendtech requires all downstream partners to provide documentation to support processing to final disposition and awards additional merit to single tier partners.
Our clients benefit from our focus on creating a single point of return that incorporates repair, redistribution, and responsible recycling. Ascendtech is the right partner for scalable supply chain solutions.
