Why Do We Vet Our Suppliers?

At JetCo Federal, our supply chain is composed of highly-qualified small manufacturers who are committed to providing the best quality products. Our manufacturers are badass at their jobs, but before they can work with us, they must be vetted. Why? It’s simple:

Quality and diversity.

Let’s start with quality. Our suppliers make high-quality products in the United States. Yes, that’s right, only in the United States. Because our products are sold to the government, where they are made is extremely important. The products our suppliers make must also be made in-house (not products that are purchased and distributed). When we bid on government contracts, we need to ensure our pricing remains competitive so that we can win contracts.

Next is diversity. As JetCo Federal grows, so does our capabilities and our need to have the correct suppliers in place to help us fulfill orders. A variety of products means a variety of manufacturers in our supply chain. Did you know our company has grown more than 1,400% from 2015 to 2018? We’re positioned for growth, and in return, our supply chain is growing.

So, why work with us?

We’ll skip the formal sales pitch. We get it – you want your products picked up quickly and you want to be paid promptly. If you can expand your sales too, that’s a plus.

Well, you’ve come to the right place.

  • We pay suppliers in an average of 3.4 days;
  • Our on-time delivery rate is 98.21%;
  • And you can leverage our contracts to expand your sales.

What does leverage our contracts mean? JetCo Federal holds multiple contract vehicles, allowing suppliers to focus on their operations while we do the government sales portion. Want more information on this? We wrote a blog post on the benefits of leveraging one of our contracts.

It’s not complicated. We’re looking for highly-qualified U.S. manufacturers, and you may be the right fit. Interested in working with us? Fill out our supplier form or give us a call. You’ll be glad you did.
