Our Supply Partners
In our business, you are only as good as your suppliers.
We have a network of many of the best suppliers in the world working for us. We work in harmonious partnership with these suppliers to deliver excellent products, on time and within budget.
This didn’t happen overnight – it has taken 30 years so far!
We highly value these strategic long term relationships which we have in place with our preferred suppliers. These suppliers understand our requirement for rigorous quality assurance, prompt and attentive service, the highest standards of social responsibility and the need to be agile and flexible in responding to changing business conditions. In order to maintain the level of quality, accountability, efficiency and pricing necessary to meet our criteria, we are continually evaluating our Preferred Supplier Network.
It doesn’t stop there!
We continually review our supplier base and seek to expand with manufacturers who understand our needs, and have the capability to supply and deliver accordingly.
Together We Succeed
Ubi concordia, ibi Victoria.
This maxim by Pubilius Syrus, the ancient Latin scribe, translated as where there is unity, there is victory, is displayed in a prominent location in our offices. It reflects our belief that good partnership between our customers, our suppliers and us are essential to our mutual success.
We are always mindful that our customers trust us with their most precious assets – their reputation and their brand. This is a responsibility to which we devote our utmost care and attention.
Sourcing is more than just finding a factory. It means finding the right factory for the right product. It is ensuring that the factory is committed to quality, traceability, safety, compliance and ethical behaviour.
We have zero tolerance for risk or for unethical standards. We conduct stringent testing, quality control, and implement strict safety measures to ensure that unsafe products never make it to market. Our QC inspectors maintain a presence in the factory before, during and even after production.
Safety and Compliance
Each order which you place with Marketing Incentives will be produced in accordance with the most strict product safety and ethical standards applicable.
We will not place an order in production without certified compliance with all EU and local product safety laws. We work with the most trusted international testing labs and inspection companies.
Products are inspected to industry recognized AQL levels, pre-production, during production and pre shipment. We never allow a product to enter the marketplace without thorough testing and certification of compliance. In addition we receive a clear and complete Statement of Compliance from the manufacturer for each order produced.
We work with carefully selected factories who meet our requirements for safety, quality, social compliance, environmental stewardship and supply chain security. We evaluate factories based on their capability to supply the right product and based on their commitment to quality, safety and compliance. Our clients have the assurance of knowing that we protect their brand by maintaining complete control of the production process from start to finish in conjunction with our international third party labs and QC teams.
In line with our commitment to responsible sourcing, Marketing Incentives will only import product from audited and auditable factories. In this way we have created a network of 100% certified suppliers, covering all needs for premium and incentive programmes.
We have introduced and implemented a Code of Conduct with our suppliers. This Code of Conduct follows the highest criteria for business practices, labour laws and environmental standards. We will not purchase product from factories which cannot, or will not, uphold these standards.
We only work with factories that are committed to continual improvement in ethical performance, through adhering to SEDEX, BSCI or SA8000 standards. We also attend regular seminars and webinars to keep abreast of best practice.
Our customers’ priorities are our priorities. The protection of our customers brand is sacrosanct. While price is important, quality, ethics and the reputation of our customers brand is foremost.
Many centuries ago, Aristotle, the Greek philosopher wrote: “We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act but a habit”.
Our values, ethics and business plan have always been based on this simple wholesome philosophy.
